Clever! Trump secretly got border wall funding approved!?

President Donald Trump hinted on Sunday that the controversial omnibus bill included funds that could be used to build the border wall — for the purpose of national security.

The president tweeted “Building a great Border Wall … is all about National Defense. Build WALL through M!” he wrote “M”, referring to the military, which just received a massive spending boost.

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Hogan Gidley explained that he did not want to comment on Trump’s tweet, suggesting that an official announcement could soon be coming from the president on allocating the money.

On Sunday morning, the president tweeted that the $1.6 billion given to build and fix the current border wall was “just a down payment.”

The border wall was a pillar of Trump’s president campaign. The estimated cost is roughly $20 billion, and Gidley claimed that the spending bill is only a “starting point,” to pay for the wall.

“[Building a border wall] is something the president ran on, one of the reasons I think he got elected,” Gidley said. “He understands that walls work.”

At the White House signing ceremony for the spending bill, Trump touted, “National defense is a very important two words. Because by having a strong border system, including a wall, we are in a position, militarily, that is very advantageous. ”

In other words, the military will build the wall using the fund allocated to it by Congress.
