Trump expected to ask for $8.6B for wall in budget

Trump expected to ask for $8.6B for wall in budget | 10 March 2019 | President Trump intends to request $8.6 billion for his long-promised wall along the border with Mexico when he submits his 2020 congressional budget on Monday, likely igniting another funding standoff with Congress. A senior administration official confirmed the figure, which is expected to be used to build or replace roughly 700 miles of barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border. Reuters reported early Sunday that funding for the wall would pull $5 billion from the Department of Homeland Security budget and $3.6 billion from the military construction budget at the Pentagon.
