President Trump on Wednesday expressed optimism in his effort to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and said recent court victories will help pave a way around “obstructionist Democrats.”
Building the wall was a key promise during Trump's 2016 presidential campaign but he has struggled to secure congressional support for the project -- a problem made worse for him when Democrats took control of the House after the 2018 midterm elections. Now the president appears intent on preventing his 2020 Democratic challenger from framing the issue as an unfulfilled promise.
"The Wall is going up very fast despite total Obstruction by Democrats in Congress, and elsewhere," Trump tweeted.
Trump promised to have close to 500 miles of wall along the 1,954-mile-long border with Mexico. The U.S. Supreme Court in July cleared the way for about $2.5 billion to be used from a Pentagon counter-drug program.
