White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer reiterated today that the U.S.-Mexico border wall is going to be built.

Todd Gillman of the Dallas Morning News asked whether the wall is still an "urgent" priority for President Trump, noting the lack of funding in the latest $1.07 trillion federal spending package.

"What is the timetable and deadline that he has in mind?" he asked.

"Make no mistake, the wall is going to be built," Spicer answered, adding that funding for the wall will be a "major priority" in October, the start of the 2018 fiscal year.

Spicer said "there's a lot that can be done" with the $1.52 billion in the latest spending package for border security and to prepare for the construction of the wall.

"I know the president wants it done as quick as possible," said Spicer, adding that bids have been submitted by companies as part of the "planning phase."
