President Trump Suggests He Has the Money for the Border Wall

6

The president is working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Homeland Security to build the border wall. At the same time, there was little money in the $1.3 trillion Omnibus for the wall.

While the bill provided for $1.6 billion for wall construction, it contained language that prohibited the President from using the money for any concrete barrier. It can only be used for some new fencing and electronic surveillance including drones.

His voting base was very upset with the Omnibus. It funded the Democrat agenda with nothing much for the wall. What it also did was fund the military for more than $700 billion and that might make all the difference. If the President’s suggestion in recent tweets come to pass, it will be the biggest fake out of Democrats in their history.

The President suggested that the military will build the wall and the money will come from the Defense budget. He has said several times that the wall is a matter of national defense.

He tweeted:

“Much can be done with the $1.6 Billion given to building and fixing the border wall. It is just a down payment. Work will start immediately. The rest of the money will come – and remember DACA, the Democrats abandoned you (but we will not)!”

“Because of the $700 & $716 Billion Dollars gotten to rebuild our Military, many jobs are created and our Military is again rich,” Trump wrote in a posting about the increase in military spending. “Building a great Border Wall, with drugs (poison) and enemy combatants pouring into our Country, is all about National Defense. Build WALL through M!”

  1. Here’s hopin’.

    As I read elsewhere today; the wall is a defensive barrier, so who better to build it than the Dept. of Defense?

    This would wipe that smug smile off Schumer’s face.

  2. Y’all DO understand the difference between an omnibus bill and an actual budget, right? Trump isn’t constitutionally restrained by an omnibus bill…just like Obama wasn’t.

    I wish I could be in the room to watch your head explode when reality sinks in.

  3. Money for the Border Wall. Smart move. Our Military bases were actually destroyed by liberals; it would be great if new bases were built along our borders and the Military used as guards.

  4. The leftists have previously installed their judges throughout the land. They will have one of their heretofore obscure judges stop wall construction by the military before it even starts.

  5. As Ryan/McConnell defy and bypass Trump while breaking promises, Trump should defy and bypass them. If Trump continually allows them to humiliate him then his reputation will be that of a chump.

  6. Why is Trump so worried about DACA we don’t need those moochers he needs to forget about amnesty and start shipping them the hell out and if their parents are still in the US they need to be rounded up and sent back to whatever rock they crawled out from
