The U.S. Military is about to do one thing that has Donald Trump’s enemies trembling with fear

Donald Trump has faced threats on every front.

But one of the biggest obstacles the President faced is now gone.

And that’s because the U.S. Military is about to do one thing that has Donald Trump’s enemies trembling with fear.

Donald Trump declared a national emergency in February to unlock military construction funds to build a border wall.

And on Tuesday, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper told Congressional leaders that the administration was prepared to use $3.6 billion dollars worth of military construction funds to begin construction on the border wall.

Politico reports:

Defense Secretary Mark Esper informed congressional leaders on Tuesday of the cash grab from a total of 127 military projects. Roughly half the money will come from funds previously dedicated to upgrading military bases abroad and the other half in the United States.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Esper told him some of the money will come from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in his home state of New York.

“It is a slap in the face to the members of the Armed Forces who serve our country that President Trump is willing to cannibalize already allocated military funding to boost his own ego and for a wall he promised Mexico would pay to build,” Schumer said in a statement.

Trump declared a national emergency in February in order to divert $8 billion from various federal accounts to build a physical barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border, including a Treasury Department fund and Defense Department efforts to interdict illegal drugs.

Illegal aliens invading the country in numbers not seen in over a decade is a crisis for America.

Building a wall where no physical barrier existed is one part of a strategy to end this catastrophe.

A recent Supreme Court ruling allowed the administration to proceed with using military construction funds to build the wall.

And given that President Trump can veto any congressional attempt to limit his legal authority under the National Emergency Act of 1976, there is nothing that can be done to stop the President from fulfilling his promise to build hundreds of miles of the border wall before the 2020 election.

  1. Mr. Gaston, I agree with you. I worked in Propulsion for the AFMC and I know first hand about canning birds for parts. The government doesn’t have a good parts supportability program. With a good parts supportability program there wouldn’t be a need for canning birds except in extreme cases. Obama tried to kill the military and now Trump has improved it.

  2. Beto judgement on immigration has been clouded as he has latino friends on both sides of the border. Beto needs to realize what unvetted immigration does to our economy not the fact that the illegals need assistance. Once the US is overrun by aliens and becomes banca rota who will then help these people out the narcotraficantes? I doubt it!

  3. You’re correct 11th Generation. There is so much of our education money going to teach these illegals English and if they can’t speak fluent English, they don’t need to come to America.

  4. Some of the money being used for the border wall was expiring funds. Govt funding has different expiration dates and if those projects can’t be completed within the time frame of the expiration date then the money is allowed to be moved to another project or will goes back to the treasury. There is nothing illegal about moving money around to fund projects.

  5. The wall was already start and will be done regardless of what the Democrats try. It has long seance been time to close the border and rescue this country.

  6. Some liberal baby killing Judge will put a fake halt to it and another and another. No matter what the law or authority President Trump has but what needs to happen is Americans take up arms. Diplomacy has stopped what in the US?

  7. White Phosphorus (Willie Pete) might be a better choice for the border
    Willie scorches a human being into a charred husk and was effective in Iraq.Time magazine could show the bodies on the cover of an upcoming issue. By God.

  8. Don’t forget someone cutting in line at the grocery store. Just put a gun to their head and blow them brains all over the Piggly Wiggly. By God!!
