Donald Trump is hell-bent on getting his border wall because he knows that the second he is voted out of office, everything he has done will be undone and a border wall is the only tangible thing he could tout for the rest of his life.
Recent news about Trump using military funds to build his very unnecessary border wall has caused quite a stir with activists, including the ACLU, who just took Trump to court over the issue.
The ACLU has said that they are seeking a court order to stop Trump from taking the more than $3.5 billion from the military’s funds. ACLU attorney Dror Ladin gave the following statement to the press:
“The fact that the government sat on these so-called ‘emergency funds’ for seven months further confirms that this is nothing but an unlawful power grab.”
“We’ll be back in court very soon to block Trump’s latest effort to raid military funds for his xenophobic wall.”
Chuck Schumer has also spoken out against the allocation, saying that Trump’s decision was a “slap in the face” to people who have and are serving this country.
