President Trump To Ask Congress For $8.6 Billion For Wall

President Donald Trump will ask Congress for $8.6 billion dedicated to building a wall along the southern US border in the 2020 congressional budget, according to a new report from Reuters.

Though the Democrat-controlled House is unlikely to approve the request, the move would provide Trump some political traction in 2020, showing wall supporters Trump's continued dedication to the issue, which he's touted since his 2015 campaign.
