Reports: Trump Will Seek New Border Funding
He’s on a budget. When he unveils his 2020 federal spending plan today, President Donald Trump is expected to request $8.6 billion for new barriers along the southern border while proposing a $2.7 trillion cut in nondefense spending over the next 10 years. Democrats and reportedly even some Republicans expressed skepticism Sunday over his plan.
