President Trump Makes HUGE Announcement on Border Wall, Democrats Are TICKED

Donald Trump built a large part of his political platform on working towards fixing our seriously flawed immigration system, especially down at the Southern Border.

Everywhere he went on the campaign trail he brought up the need for a big strong wall at the border between the United States and Mexico in order to combat the massive illegal immigration that occurs every single day.

Putting a stop to immigration would do wonders to help reduce drug and human trafficking into the United States.

With a proper wall in place, these criminals would be forced to enter the U.S. through ports of entry like they're supposed to, which would increase the difficulty of carrying out their crimes.

It hasn't been an easy fight against the Democrats to secure the funds, but Trump is a man who can get things done.

President Trump is preparing to divert an additional $7.2 billion in Pentagon funding for border wall construction this year, five times what Congress authorized him to spend on the project in the 2020 budget, according to internal planning figures obtained by The Washington Post.

The Pentagon funds would be extracted, for the second year in a row, from military construction projects and counternarcotics funding. According to the plans, the funding would give the government enough money to complete about 885 miles of new fencing by spring 2022, far more than the 509 miles the administration has slated for the U.S. border with Mexico.

Trump took $2.5 billion from military counterdrug programs for border barrier construction in 2019, but this year his administration is planning to take significantly more — $3.5 billion. Trump administration officials also are planning to take $3.7 billion in military construction funding, slightly more than the $3.6 billion diverted in 2019.

President Trump said at a rally this week that he now has enough money to fund the entire wall and that there should be great progress over the next year. If I remember correctly, we currently have over 100 miles of the wall up now.
