Trump Asks Congress For $999 Million To Start Building The Border Wall

President Donald Trump asked Congress for $999 million to start building the wall along the border with Mexico this year, and wants $2.6 billion for the project in next year’s budget.

The White House asked Congress to add nearly a billion dollars to the Customs and Border Protection’s 2017 budget for “planning, design, and construction of the first installment of the border wall,” according to a supplemental budget request released Thursday. The supplemental request also asks for $179 million for road improvements, gates and bridges along the border and $200 million to deploy border security technology.

    Not sure he’s going to need all that money to buy materials, what with the Dems, the Lo-info voters and the GOP establishment sh*tting bricks at every turn.

  • deplorabledave

    Given that pos obama got 800 billion for his “stimulus” with nothing to show for it, this has to be a slam dunk.

    I think that Trump is Playing with them.
    He already knows his next move.

        Give it 15 years. If the Liberals are reelected federally in 2019 it’s guaranteed (and the same is true with most of the vote-whoring Conservatives).

        At least Justin is giving safe homes to those disposed to terrorism.

          True.
          Traitors tend to do that.

    I heard they have motion sensitive machine guns in the Korean DMZ.
    They should get some of those, too.

      Not much good if they don’t USE and Maintain them.

  • Shebel

    Trump has probably just learned that as President of the USA—
    He has LESS power than Justin in Canada.

  • Shebel

    If you spend the money that you have been wasting on other things and actually build a
    Useless Wall—
    Then the Voters can See ,and Touch and Feel it.

    This will be be a Monument to Trump.
    A LEGACY.

    And the Mexicans WILL pay for it.

    Gonna be quite the Legacy.

    • Clausewitz

      He really doesn’t need to build a wall. All he has to do is make sure that the laws on the books are enforced for both the illegal immigrants, and their employers. That alone would wipe out the servant population for the Democrat Hypocrites, and their Hollywood sycophants.

    A minefield would be cheaper and more effective.

    The Great WALL
    Hadrian’s Wall (Justins’ Son)

    The TRUMP WALL.

    I don’t think that I am wrong.

  • Shebel

    How MUCH have our Glorious Leaders wasted in an attempt to create a
    LEGACY for themselves ?

    TRUMP will do it at a bargain rate .

    And it will stand the ‘Tests of Time’.

    It is a move that only a Chess player can appreciate.
