Hi Anna,

You have a typo in your call to deleteButton.addEventListener().

Your code is:

deleteButton.addEventListener = ('click', () => {

Which JS understands as assigning ('click', () => { ... }) to the addEventListener property on the deleteButton object. This replaces the existing addEventListener() function with a string.

Instead, you want to call the existing addEventListener() function with the click and () => { ... } arguments.

Hope that's clear.



Makes total sense. Thank you!
