Trump Budget Set to Include 1,000 Miles of Border Wall


From the moment that Donald Trump stepped forth onto the American political scene, he had but a few priorities:  Bringing back American jobs from overseas, draining the swamp, and curbing illegal immigration.

Of those pursuits, the most focused was his stance on undocumented migrants arriving to America.  Trump channeled this into the chant of “build the wall”, which the liberal left immediately decried as racist on account of their hatred of Trump.

Since that time, Trump has been stymied and stonewalled at every turn, forcing the Commander in Chief to take some drastic measures in order to secure the southern border.  That includes some creative accounting in the 2020 budget.

President Donald Trump’s budget request to Congress says the administration has enough cash to build 1,000 miles of border wall.

“With funding made available from 2017 to 2020, the Administration will build up to approximately 1,000 miles of border wall along the Southwest border,” said the summary of the budget request for 2021 that was sent to Congress Monday.

There is a delay between the arrival of funding and the completion of construction, so the administration is unlikely to reach 1,000 miles of wall for several years. The current schedule says roughly 500 miles will be completed by early 2021

The funding is being taken from the Department of Defense’s construction budget, which is allowed by various federal laws that grant some levels of emergency power to the president. In the last two years, Trump has switched $14 billion in funding, partly because the regular funding is still beset by Democratic opposition and GOP passivity.

To build 1,000 miles, Trump may need to switch additional funds during 2020 and 2021.

The news will surely arrive in MAGA circles to fanfare, but, given the nature of the budgeting process described above, it appears that the reelection of Donald Trump in 2020 will be paramount to achieving the full 1,000 miles.
