First it was Mexico. Now it’s the military.
Writing in the Washington Post, Josh Dawsey and Mike DeBonis write that Trump is now calling for the Military to pay for his precious Wall. They note, “Trump, who told advisers he was spurned in a large spending bill last week when lawmakers appropriated only $1.6 billion for the border wall, has begun suggesting that the Pentagon could fund the sprawling construction, citing a ‘national security’ risk.”
The article goes on to say that the idea has a snowball’s chance in hell at the moment, and probably always will have. To make it happen, Congress would have to amend the budget which is carefully worked out a while ago.
And as for the military? In the words of a certain southern president, “We’re not going to pay for no fucking wall.”
First it was Mexico. Now Trump wants to the military to pay for his Great Wall. The chances of it happening are slim indeed.
