Meanwhile, the $1.6 billion in the bill for some fencing and levees on the border not only fell far short of the $25 billion that Trump was seeking, but it came with tight restrictions on how the money can be spent.
But a recent tweet from Trump appearing to suggest it could be built through military funding and a Washington Postreport that Trump is already pressing the military to build the wall suggests that idea has since died. Trump thinks the Defense Department could bankroll the barrier, a key campaign proposal for the president, because it poses a national security risk, the Post reported.
The White House's military office, the Pentagon and a spokeswoman for Ryan did not immediately respond to requests to comment. Taking money from the current 2018 budget for the wall would require an act of Congress, said a senior Pentagon official.
The president went on to tout how the military would be investing the new funding, highlighting money tagged for tanks, F-35 fighter jets, Black Hawk helicopters and new naval ships.
He's told his near 50 million followers that now the military has recently got a tidy sum close to three quarters of a billion dollars, that's plenty of spare cash to build that wall. Not only will Democrats take a hard pass military spending paying for his fence, but Pentagon officials, per White House advisers, "may also blanch at the possibility". He wants to have the USA military fund the construction of the project. At almost every campaign rally, the man who would go on to become the US President claimed that his government was going to construct a wall spanning almost 1,000 miles, in order to "safeguard" the American border. During hiscampaign, Trump spoke vehemently against illegal immigration and proposed a plan on how to end immigrants crossing the border illegally.
The urgency to strike a deal reflected the growing sense that the spending bill represented the last chance for the Trump administration to secure substantial wall funding, at least in his first term.
