I love seeing the progress updates on this. Over 400 miles projected to be completed by the end of his first term, not bad without any help from congress.

This section is being donated to the US Government.

The road they constructed along the wall must look tempting to skateboarders and cyclists!

I agree. Sadly, the bureaucracy of a broken federal contracts system is going to make that near impossible.

You told us what we thought during Obamas terms and here you are again, telling us what you think we think now <sarcasm> lol

hmm, or is it liberal media without knowing us personally is telling you what we think then you believe them without knowing us personally.

Of course you are. I'm more concerned about the security and safety of my fellow Americans than my own petty needs. To each his own is right.

For the remaining balance, though, Trump will use fiscal year 2020 and 2021 funds. These funds come out of fiscal year 2019 funds. Next year's federal budget leaves a whole new pot to tap for the wall via the National Emergencies Act
Over-bloated? Wow, first time I ever heard a Trump supporter say that. And here Republicans are always asking for more and more money for the military. So next time Trump asks for more money for the military, I expect you to denounce it due the military already being bloated!

Oh and by the way, the funds he pulled already effected military readiness but then again, we all know Trump supporters don't care.
