    President Trump is considering another option absent Congressional funding for his long-promised border wall between the United States and Mexico — military resources. “We have two options,” the president told The Daily Mail on Friday aboard Air Force One. “We have military, we have homeland security.” While Trump would prefer to fund the approximately $25 billion needed for the wall “the old-fashioned way — get it from Congress,” he told the Daily Mail that he has “other options if I have to.” The president is unlikely to get the funding from Congress given Democrats’ obstruction efforts and even recalcitrant Republicans,...

    The Mexican secretary of foreign affairs on Tuesday pushed back after President Trump repeated his assertion that Mexico would pay for a wall along the border between the two countries. "We just reached a trade understanding with the US, and the outlook for the relationship between our two countries is very positive," Luis Videgaray tweeted. "We will NEVER pay for a wall, however," he added. "That has been absolutely clear from the very beginning." Videgaray's tweet came in response to comments Trump made during a meeting with FIFA and U.S. Soccer officials about the 2026 men's World Cup. Shortly after...

    FULL TITLE: WATCH: TRUMP TELLS DEMOCRATS IT’S ‘STRICTLY PATHETIC’ And “THE WALL IS BEING BUILT” After Mollie Tibbetts Was Permanently Separated From Her Family [VIDEO] President Donald Trump released a new video on social media calling out Democrats for their inability to deal with border security. He called it “strictly pathetic” because we don’t have enough support for the border security, the laws aren’t being enforced as much as we need them to be, we need more manpower, and the sanctuary city status is an absolute downfall to every city that embraces it. We have people who risk their lives...

    “So what about the $5 billion allegedly for a wall that members are falling over each other to tweet about?” Lyng asked. “While most other funding for DHS must be doled out within a year, House GOP members deliberately stretched out the $5 billion through September 30, 2023, five long years down the road.” “How can we trust them, especially since the bill never mentions the wall or a barrier? Doing the math, and assuming (foolishly) that $1 billion each year will be allocated for Trump’s wall, it will take 25 years to complete.” Further, the bill includes an amendment...

    Congressional Republicans keep trying to downplay the possibility of a government shutdown this fall, just weeks ahead of midterm elections, even as President Trump returns again and again to that very scenario. "I don't care what the political ramifications are," tweeted Trump on Tuesday, "our immigration and border security have been a complete and total disaster for decades, and there is no way that the Democrats will allow it to be fixed without a Government Shutdown..."

    MARLOW: I think this is a total ticking time bomb here, that there’s no wall, there’s no plan for a wall, and I’m very disturbed by it because I think this puts the entire presidency in the balance if the wall does not get built. And there is no one taking it seriously, apparently not even in the White House at this point. COULTER: No, I know. The original sin was Trump hiring all these establishment, swampy Never Trumper types. No, no one is there to tell him ‘Hey remember that promise you campaigned on and every single campaign rally...
  • Exclusive–Rep. King: The Supreme Court Just Laid the Foundation for the Border Wall

    Breitbart ^ | 6/26/2018 | Rep. Steve King
    In one ruling, the Supreme Court has delivered two major victories to President Trump. The first victory is obvious: Trump v. Hawaii validates the President’s broad authority to restrict entry of specified foreign nationals into the United States when the President finds such entry is “detrimental to the interests of the United States.” What does this mean? It means, as I have argued, that President Trump’s “travel ban” limiting immigration from Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Chad, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen is constitutional. It means that President Trump does have the authority, despite the open-borders howls of liberals and illegal...

    House Republicans had to scramble late Wednesday night to fix a drafting error in a conservative immigration bill that would have accidentally given President Donald Trump $125 billion for border security, including his wall instead of the $25 billion intended. The error, which happens occasionally during legislative drafting accidentally allocated $25 billion per year for five years rather than allocating the $25 billion over a five-year period. The error, first reported by Politico, was just one of the last-minute hiccups that's unfolded around the House's immigration votes, which will occur later today and aren't likely to pass.

    President Donald J. Trump vowed not to sign a bill on illegal immigration unless it included funding for a wall and strong border security. “Unless it includes a wall, and I mean a wall, a real wall, and unless it includes very strong border security, there will be no approvals from me,” Trump said in an interview with Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade aired Thursday morning. Trump added he was frustrated that he did not get more funding for the wall in the last funding bill, but said that $1.6 billion was a good start. “I can tell you...

    This Reuters article is framed around Mexico making a surprise announcement they will support the U.S. steel tariff against China by shutting down the NAFTA back door on that specific trade segment…. However, the bigger story is Mexico’s admission/concession to the U.S. trade position that Canada and Mexico structure access to the U.S. market inside their trade deals with other nations. With a Marxist about to win the July 1st election; and with certain nationalization of private industry soon to follow; and with free capital markets anticipating and responding by shifting investment into the U.S.; Mexico proposes to close the...

    Homeland Security began building a border wall in New Mexico on Monday, moving to replace vehicle barriers with a modern fence that will deter pedestrians attempting to cross in the remove desert west of El Paso. The 20-mile project has been on the books for some time and the contract was awarded Jan. 22, meaning it was finalized before the recent fight over border wall money in the new 2018 spending bill. But the administration says it wouldn’t have been built but for President Trump’s push for more border wall. “We need effective barriers to deny the entry of illegal...

    The United States has 14,000 troops in Afghanistan, 39,000 in Japan, 34,805 in Germany, 23,000 in South Korea, and around 5,200 in Iraq. Our military protects the borders of countless nations. Except our own. In 1919, we had 18,500 soldiers on the border. “Twice a day every foot of the border line is patrolled by cavalrymen and infantrymen,” the New York Times noted. A hundred years later, President Trump’s proposal to use the military to secure the border is controversial even though Marines fighting drug cartels have come under fire from drug smugglers. El Salvadoran migration has inflicted 207 murderers...

    On many issues -- naming Scalia-like judges and backing Reagan-like tax cuts -- President Trump is a conventional Republican. Where he was exceptional in 2016, where he stood out starkly from his GOP rivals, where he won decisive states like Pennsylvania, was on his uniquely Trumpian agenda to put America and Americans first -- from which the Bush Republicans recoiled. Trump alone pledged to kill amnesty and secure the border with a 30-foot wall to halt the invasion of our country. Trump alone pledged to end the de-industrialization of America and bring back our lost factories and lost jobs....
  • Trump privately presses for U.S. military to pay for border wall

    President Donald Trump, who repeatedly insisted during the 2016 campaign that Mexico would pay for a wall along the southern border, is privately pushing the U.S. military to fund construction of his signature project. Trump has told advisers that he was spurned in a large spending bill last week when lawmakers appropriated only $1.6 billion for the border wall. He has suggested to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and congressional leaders that the Pentagon could fund the sprawling project, citing a "national security" risk. After floating the notion to several advisers last week, Trump told House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., that...

    Congress is using budget shenanigans to funnel Pentagon money to President Trump’s border wall. From Inside the articleThe Rules Committee took this one amendment and labeled it, "proposed to be adopted." In the arcana of House rules, this means that voting for the rule governing consideration of the bill was also voting for this amendment. This is known as a "self-executing rule." The ranking Democrat on the committee, Rep. Louise Slaughter of New York, offered an amendment to strike the self-executing portion of the rule and was defeated in committee on a party-line vote of 4-8. On the House floor,...

  • Did Trump Just Hint at Building the Border Wall Using the Military?

    The Epoch Times ^ | 03/24/2018 | Ivan Pentchoukov
    President Donald Trump briefly threatened to veto a giant spending bill on Friday and then reluctantly signed it to keep the military funded. The lack of funding for a border wall with Mexico is likely one of the president’s biggest frustrations. Trump mentioned the wall when he threatened to veto the bill. The $1.3 trillion budget includes just $1.6 billion for wall construction along the southern border, far short of the $25 billion needed to accomplish Trump’s signature campaign promise. To make matters worse, the spending bill specifically prohibits Trump from building the kind of wall he wants. The president...
