via Congress didn’t give Trump the money he wants for his border wall, so now he reportedly wants the military to build it – AOL News

Stymied by the lack of funding for his promised US-Mexico border wall in the latest spending bill, President Donald Trump now wants the military to pay for the barrier, according to The Washington Post.

The $1.3 trillion spending bill, which Trump ruefully signed last week, only included $1.6 billion for fencing and levees on the border and just $641 million for new primary fencing in areas that do not currently have barriers. The bill also limits that money to “operationally effective designs” that were already in the field by May 2017.
