LETTER: What Trump should have said

Pennsylvania

In reference to the open spaces depicted in the crowd at the inauguration, he should have opined that the spaces represented the people who voted for him, but couldn’t afford to go to Washington because they aren’t working.

Furthermore, he should have told the critics that in four years, after those same people who were missing, will have jobs, and will be able to attend his next inauguration.

It would be interesting to know how many of the demonstrators were there because it didn’t conflict with their work schedules, because they don’t have a job.

“Perhaps” therein lies the motive behind some of them being there. Could it be that they’re fearful that they are going to have to get a job or lose all of their subsidies?

One thing I’m pretty sure about, it hasn’t been too difficult to get into the country, but it’s even easier to get out!
