Priebus ‘confident’ budget deal will advance the Mexican wall
“We expect a massive increase in military spending. We expect money for border security in this bill. And it ought to be. Because the president won overwhelmingly. And everyone understands the border wall was part of it.”
We already have a massive military budget. We spend way too much on border security. The president won a technical, rules-based victory, which is still a victory, but it is the exact opposite of winning “overwhelmingly”. The border wall is a terrible idea, and I think everyone expected it to disappear once Trump was actually in office.
