The move would break a key campaign promise when Trump repeatedly said he would force Mexico to pay for the construction of the wall along the border, says CNN.
The Trump team argues it will have the authority through a Bush-era 2006 law to build the wall, lawmakers say, but it lacks the money to do so. Transition officials have told House GOP leaders in private meetings they'd like to pay for the wall in the funding bill, a senior House GOP source said.
I suspect Trump will claim that he will shakedown Mexico to replenish the funds used (expect a Trump rweet any moment), but no one in Congress is addressing the point that has been made numerous times by Ron Paul, walls can be used to keep people in as well as out.
Remember the Berlin Wall!
Government created walls are dangerous and evil.
Right on schedule:
The dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2017
