Trump Moving Forward With Plan to use Military Funds for Border
A new report shows that President Trump is moving forward with plans to divert military funds to get the border wall built.

The Pentagon is looking to reallocate over $3 billion to the border wall effort.

According to The Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump is reportedly moving forward with his plan to redirect billions in military funds toward wall construction at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Trump administration is calling lawmakers whose districts will be affected, telling them a plan to divert $3.6 billion from military construction projects to the southern border wall will be executed this week, CNN reported, citing defense officials and a letter from Defense Secretary Mark Esper.

β€œIt is a slap in the face to the members of the Armed Forces who serve our country that President Trump is willing to cannibalize already allocated military funding to boost his own ego and for a wall he promised Mexico would pay to build,” Senate Minority Leader Schumer said in a statement, according to Politico.

Around half of the military funding will come from construction projects within the U.S. while the other half will be taken from construction projects outside the country.

Liberals are sure to continue to meltdown over this new revelation but it will be interesting to watch their reactions as the border wall grows.
