Where’s the outrage from our U.S. senators that President Donald Trump has taken away money from Alaska for upcoming federally funded projects to keep his campaign promise to fund a border wall that many, many people say will do nothing to solve the border problem he has created?

I am not surprised that Sen. Dan Sullivan agrees and supports this money being given away. Does he hope it will just automatically come back to us? Who is Sen. Sullivan working for? Doesn’t appear it is for Alaska.

Where is Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s voice? I have voted for her because she has always spoken up for Alaskans and worked hard to get federal funding for Alaska projects. Both senators are throwing away jobs for Alaskans just to support a failed project for an even worse failing president.
