Trump plans to divert $7.2 billion from Pentagon for border wall construction

President Trump reportedly plans to divert $7.2 billion from the Pentagon to go toward border wall construction this year. The amount is five times greater than what Congress authorized in the budget. This would be the second year in a row that money is redirected to the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border from military construction projects and counternarcotics funding.

Mexico will pay for the wall. No, US taxpayers are funding it. Meanwhile, the US deficit topped a $trillion dollars in 2019.
