Judging the Trump era by its walls | READER COMMENTARY

In this Jan. 6, 2021 file photo rioting supporters of President Donald Trump climb the west wall of the the U.S. Capitol in Washington. Historians say Trump’s legacy and his electoral undoing will be largely shaped by rhetoric aimed at stirring his largely white base that tugged at the long-frayed strands of race relations in America.

Donald Trump went to Texas this week to check the progress by which his wall was being built (”Trump takes no responsibility for riot, tours Texas border wall construction after days spent out of sight and banned from Twitter,” Jan. 12).

He could have simply left the White House and walked a few blocks up to the U.S. Capitol Building and noticed a different type of wall he was entirely responsible for erecting. That one was built in a matter of hours. How utterly sad.
