Why does a salt containing an acid lower the pH? As it says CL does not affect the pH I'm a little confused on this topic.

I think it has to do with the sentence before it, " cations from groups 1 and 2 do not affect ph" and Na is in group 1 and can not generate the [H30+] and [H30+] needs to be there for the ph to calculated.
