Trump 'Not Happy' With Border Wall Progress, Vows Something 'Very Strong' After Election
President Trump said on "Fox & Friends" Thursday he's "not happy" with the pace of progress on the border wall, vowing something "very strong" will happen after the midterm elections.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy plans to introduce legislation that would fully fund President Trump’s wall on along the nation's southern border, FoxNews.com reported.
Congress has already funneled $1.6 billion to construction as part of the omnibus spending bill for the 2018 fiscal year, but McCarthy’s new bill would direct about $23.4 billion toward building the wall, a signature issue for Trump.
He said the wall construction would be much further along if Democrats were not blocking his agenda, arguing the wall is "good for our country."
"The only thing they're good at is obstruction and delay. ... They fight in unison because they think that's a good political thing," said Trump, adding that Republicans do not want to pass funding before the elections.
Trump said the wall is another "tool of success" for keeping criminal aliens out of the country.
"It's happening," he ended.
