Trump Reveals His Backup Plan if Congress Won’t Fund the Wall

President Donald Trump on Friday vowed that he will continue making progress on the border wall between the United States and Mexico and would not rule out a military option to fund his signature proposal if Congress gets cold feet.

The wall was among Trump’s first proposals when the billionaire declared his candidacy for the White House in June 2015. The current projection for the cost of the wall is about $25 billion. The proposal has drawn fierce political opposition from Democrats in Congress as well as lukewarm support from some moderate Republican circles.

During a flight from Billings, Montana to Fargo, North Dakota on Friday, the president spoke about the wall during an informal gathering with the media aboard Air Force One. He was asked if he would use the Army Corps of Engineers to build the wall if Congress continues to balk on funding.

“We’d rather do it the old-fashioned way — get it from Congress — but I have other options if I have to,” Trump said, according to The Daily Mail.

Trump reminded the media that sections of the wall are already being built.

“Just so you understand, I’ve already started the wall. The wall has been started,” Trump said according to a transcript of the interview released by the White House. “In fact, we’re sort of saying, ‘Continue the wall.’ You know, ‘Continue.’ Right? Instead of ‘Build the wall,’ ‘Continue the wall.'”

Trump then said that to move forward — which he is committed to doing — there are two roads.

The Department of Homeland Security has been generously funded, and DHS authority falls directly under the President.  Use of funds from DHS to build a wall along the Southern Border falls directly under the National Security provisions within DHS.  Legally and with full Administrative Branch Authority, President Trump, with the stroke of his pen can and should divert funds to continue paying to build the wall.  

Very well stated, Jerome. He does have that authority and should use it immediately!

He can use those funds under Homeland Security and use the Army Corp of Engineers to build it. He needs to just do it, if congress won't fund the wall. I think he will.
