Letter: Making America great

To the Editor:

If Mexico is going to pay for the wall, why is $3.6 billion being diverted from the Pentagon to build 500 miles of the wall, to be completed just after the 2020 election?

So 127 projects will be affected by this, i.e.: $400 million to rebuild military sites in still damaged hurricane sites in Puerto Rico; $40 million is projects at Camp Le June, and $160 million in projects at West Point... Is this making America great again?
