President Donald Trump just dropped a major bombshell on House Democrats with a new budget proposal.
Reports say that Trump’s plan includes $5 billion in funding for the Department of Homeland Security along with $3.6 billion for more border wall construction.
President Trump is planning on using the combined $8.6 billion for constructing 722 miles of barriers along the border. This project is planned as an addition to the 122 miles of border barriers that are already under construction.
President Trump appears to remain staunchly committed to fulfilling his promise of increasing border security. Trump’s dedication to the issue has infuriated Democrats for months as they try to foil his plans.
A top White House official told Fox News that “I would just say that the whole issue of the wall, of border security, is of paramount importance.”
According to the Daily Caller, President Trump is slated to roll out the official budget proposal Monday. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have reportedly already caught wind of the funding requests and are gearing up for another border security fight.
