A source from the Trump transition team has stated that President-elect Donald Trump plans to ask Congress to fund the construction of the border wall between the United States and Mexico, CNN reports.
Trump asserts that he already has the authorization to build the law based on a 2006 law, however proper funding needs to be obtained.
Asking Congress to pay for the wall would go back on yet another one of Trump’s campaign promises. Should the bill be included in a spending bill it also opens up the possibility of a government shut down if Congressional Democrats filibuster.
