The following “to do” list needs to be on President Donald Trump’s desk this morning before mistakes are made in the implementation of a border wall built with emergency funds. With the fast-moving news, if it is not too late already, there is great risk of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
1) Take the weekend to get it right. It is not enough to do the right thing. One must do it the right way. Especially with controversial actions that are certain to be tested in court, the details matter. PUT DOWN THE PEN and take another 96 hours until Tuesday morning.
