JUST IN: Republican House just made a BIG down payment on Trump’s border wall

Republicans in the House have finally funded Trump’s border wall with a healthy down payment of $1.6 billion:

AP – The Republican-led House has voted to make a $1.6 billion down payment for President Donald Trump’s long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The vote was 230-196. Republican leaders avoided voting directly on the divisive issue Thursday. Instead, they tucked the wall provision into a broader procedural vote.

Democrats said they might have defeated the wall if they’d been given a chance. It’s unpopular with more moderate Republicans and those representing districts with large immigrant communities.

Money for the wall is part of a broader $788 billion spending bill funding defense and veterans programs.

So they hid it in a much larger funding bill. LOL! That’s kinda sad, but I guess doing makes it easier to get things done politically right now.

No doubt Trump will is ecstatic at the news.
