Donald Trump just got some news about the border wall that every Democrat feared would come

Donald Trump made building the wall his signature campaign issue in 2016.

Once the President took office, Democrats did everything in their power to stop Trump from fulfilling this goal.

But now, Donald Trump just got some news about the border wall that every Democrat feared would come.

In 2019, Donald Trump finally had enough of the Democrats’ obstruction and declared a national emergency, which unlocked military funds the President could use to build a border wall.

Democrats shutdown the government over a refusal to provide funding for the wall and the President broke the stalemate with the National Emergency Act of 1976.

On Tuesday, President Trump traveled to Arizona to celebrate over 200 miles of border wall construction being completed.

The trip also revealed that the administration had plans to build over 300 miles of new wall and that the $15 billion the President unlocked through his declaration of a national emergency would result in over 700 miles of border wall being built when all is said and done.

Breitbart reports, “Officials have started building another 339 miles and are sketching plans for an additional 183 miles, according to Mark Morgan, the acting commissioner for the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Trump has directed $15 billion in funding, which is enough for roughly 738 miles of wall, including associated roads, cameras, and communication networks, he said.”

Presidents who deliver on their signature campaign promises tend to win re-election.

In a normal year, Donald Trump could campaign on promises made and promises kept.

But with the Black Lives Matter race riots and the coronavirus pandemic, all bets are off on 2020 being a normal election year.

    Dear Ronsch,
    You’re a misinformed moron. Illegal immigration is costing the United States $200 BILLION a year. That adds ONE TRILLION dollars to our national debt every 5 years for people WHO AREN’T EVEN SUPPOSED TO BE HERE. WE NEED TO PUT A STOP TO IT, PERIOD!

    What President Trump has spent on the wall to help our country, is nothing compared to what the democrats have pocketed to enhance their own wealth. Not only dem’s but a lot of Republicans also. So many of our tax dollars are stolen with no benifit to the public.

  6. STEWART J ANDREWS says:

    look at world history, walls don’t work

  7. Ronsch says:

    The appeals court found that Trump’s effort to divert funding that Congress had set aside for the military violated Congress’ power of the purse under the Appropriations Clause of the Constitution.

    “These funds were appropriated for other purposes, and the transfer amounted to ‘drawing funds from the Treasury without authorization by statute and thus violating the Appropriations Clause,’” the majority wrote. “Therefore, the transfer of funds here was unlawful.”

  8. LOL says:

    We could stop giving money to the corrupt U.N. and put that money back into the veteran fund.
    That would be a good place to start. There is lots of taxpayer money that is wasted which could be used for U.S. citizens.

  9. Dr. J.D. says:

    Both Schumer and Pelosi are on camera saying we need a border wall to stop the influx of illegal aliens, and even Obama himself has deported more illegals than any president in history. But now Trump is in office the democrat establishment does a complete 180.
    For anyone with a functioning brain this blatantly shows democrats have no interest in the welfare of this country or it’s citizens. Democrats only care about power.

  10. Dale Wing says:

    So Trump just uses military funds to help build the wall? Leave that for the veterans.You say you are so rich, you find it out of your own pocket. YOU WANTED IT!

    It is sad to see this country torn apart by EVIL puppet rioters supported by EVIL demoncrats. No other President could have dealt with all the garbage going on like our great President Trump. He is a very smart man. I would like to meet him some day. It would be such a great pleasure. Thank you Lord for sending us a man with backbone & love for the American people. President Trump is a man of his word. He is the First President to keep his word. Mr. President I love your wall. Could you now put all the EVIL demoncrats on the other side of it. We do not need any of them. God Bless You Mr. President & your beautiful family. America is truly thankful for your leadership.

    According to the Military Times , Defense Department budget experts found an extra $224 million from the military’s new Blended Retirement System because fewer service members than expected opted into the new system in 2018, leaving some of that money unspent, Why is it liberals always tell you A STORY AND NOT THE STORY?

    What do you think about the Russians paying bounty for the Taliban killing American soldiers, and Trump knowing about this in March and not only not reacting to it but asking the G7 to include the Russians? He has yet to ask the Russians to stop killing American Soldiers. I’m a Vietnam veteran and I find it appalling that there are so many veterans out there that don’t realize what a disaster he is for the military. He’s a draft-dodger and Generals have to salute him.

    T”rump is going to take more than $220 million from the pensions of American military members to pay for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a Wednesday Wall Street Journal report”. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/apr/30/democrats-using-veterans-benefits-bill-block-trump/

  16. Ronsch says:

    You’re not paying attention. Trump took millions from the Veterans Pension fund to pay for his wall.

  17. merryinfidel says:

    Ronsch,
    That’s bullcrap. I’m retired Army and he is in NO WAY building this wall on the backs of veterans. He’s building it with the FULL SUPPORT of the vast majority of us veterans. You sound like the typical liberal, incapable of thinking for yourself, who believes anything and everything your lame stream media handlers tell you. Are you really this gullible???

  18. Ronsch says:

    Trump diverted hundreds of millions of dollars intended for pension funds intended for veterans to build his wall. He is building this wall on the backs of veterans.

  19. Elizabeth says:

    God bless President Trump for being the best president we could have in these difficult times. Demorats do everything to get rid of him because he exposed them and therefor people can see them for what they really are . Any promise he made he kept including building the wall. Very unusual for any president in recent history just saying!!! .

    we need this wall finished
