BREAKING: Supreme Court Backs Trump – Allows Admin to Use Pentagon Funds to Build Border Wall

Posted on 26 July 2019

The Supreme Court ruled Friday that the Trump Administration can use $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds to build the border wall.

“Supreme Court backs Trump on border wall, lets administration start using reprogrammed Pentagon dollars to construct more than 100 miles of fencing,” Bloomberg Supreme Court reporter Greg Stohr said on Friday.

“The four liberal justices all at least partially dissent. Breyer says he would let the administration finalize the contracts but not begin construction,” Stohr reported.

President Trump declared a national emergency in February in order to divert Pentagon funds to build the border wall.

Several lawsuits were filed following Trump’s declaration and Congress even tried stopping the president.

The Justice Department took the request all the way up to the Supreme Court and argued that Trump has the authority to transfer funds from the Pentagon.

President Trump celebrated the victory on Friday evening, calling it a “Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!”
