Did anyone think they were going to just write a check?
They know this is what he said--but they think that they've found a campaign slogan and prefer to lie to their own consitituents.

Breaking news from Jan. 21, 2017?
No, I guess you didn't bother to read the article. The Democrats are trying to block Trump from using the building defense funds that were diverted for the wall just last week. This is a recent article.

No, it's not "mathematically impossible". It's simply a matter of how many are working on it. But he doesn't need to get it built within 4 years, he just needs to get the guaranteed contracts awarded.

Can we just deport the Ds south of the border for trying to block this since they have no interest in Americans and more for the Illegals.

If the Great Wall of China, which is over 13k miles, can be built and used to prevent invaders from intruding, I don't see why we can't and shouldn't build the wall on our southern border to protect invaders from coming in to protect us. In addition, it would make sense it came from the defense budget since it IS part of defending America from invaders. What better use of the fund then spending it overseas protecting other countries?

Glad Trump is doing his part for the best interest of this country, while the traitorous Ds can go pound sand.

Simple put: the president (any president) only has emergency powers because they were delegated to that office by the congress. Abusing those powers to thwart the congress's sole responsibility to allocate funds is one sure way of getting those powers pulled from the presidency, and looks to me like an impeachable offence as well.

If you can not see this, you need to go back to high school, you failed civics.
Since when is it undermining the Constitution when the funds were awarded to him by the Pentagon? You're the one who's putting your own spin on it and one more personal attack and you'll be reported.

What the United States spends money on is up to the Congress. In 2018, Americans overwhelmingly voted for Democrats in Congress which certainly suggests that funding the wall was not a priority for them. Elections SHOULD have consequences and hopefully the Democrats will be able to put the will of the majority, as expressed in the 2018 election, over Trump's attempt to subvert it.

Democrats love illegals and hate Americans. It's that simple.

I don't know...maybe actual defense of the country instead of some manufactured and exaggerated crisis? This is about Trump delivering on a campaign promise, period.

It wasnít Ďawardedí hotshot. It was done by EO and executive fiat.

Well.. Thereís a word for that...
