The president’s plane could be built only in Mexico.
The administration’s budget proposal calls for $1.7 billion in border security and construction funds for fiscal year 2019.
That’s a lot of money for the president, who’s promised to spend billions of dollars on border security, but it doesn’t include money for building a new border wall between the United States and Mexico.
President Donald Trump has vowed to spend $1 billion to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border in 2019.
But the border wall proposal would require billions of additional dollars in additional spending for border security.
For the most part, Trump has been reluctant to fund border security directly because he believes the spending would hurt the economy.
