President Trump made a vow to the American people. That as our president, he would fight to keep us safe.
Sadly, even Republicans in Congress have opposed his America first agenda. Congress continues to refuse to fund Trump’s big beautiful wall along the border.
While his plan all along has been to get Mexico to pay for the wall—it starts with funding from our government.
Mexico can pay us back over time, but we need the wall built NOW.
D.C. wants to spend billions on bloated welfare programs. They’d rather use your hard earn money to turn America into a socialist state.
So, Trump is ditching them and making a big move.
From The Hill:
President Trump plans to divert $7.2 billion from the Pentagon to go toward border wall construction this year, an amount five times greater than what Congress authorized in the budget…
The plans indicate that this new boost of funding would allow the administration to build about 885 miles of new fencing by spring of 2022, more than the 509 miles planned for the border.
Boom! Trump is diverting another $7 billion from the Pentagon to build more of the wall.
This week, he reached a milestone with 100 miles of newly-constructed wall. His goal is to have over 400 miles completed by the end of the year.
This new funding will go to build a staggering 885 miles of new border fencing and security measures.
That’s a huge section of our border that will finally be secured and protected.
The money is being taken from counterdrug programs and military construction funding. Sounds appropriate, since the border is frequently used by drug cartels and is a national security concern.
Why shouldn’t this money be used to build the wall?
It’s pretty sad that there are Republicans who stand opposed to Trump’s border wall. But it is only proof that the swamp runs deep.
Without Donald Trump at the reins, who knows what Washington would be wasting its time and money on?
SHARE if you want Trump to finish the wall!
