Breitbart | Feb. 17, 2019

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said Saturday night he hasn’t decided how to divert money from the Pentagon to fund a border wall ordered by President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration.

On Friday, Trump said he wants to move $6.7 billion, including $3.6 billion in military construction money and $2.5 billion in the military’s counter-narcotics activities, for barrier funding on top of $1.3 billion approved by Congress for security fencing along the Mexican border. The other funding includes $600 million in Treasury Department drug forfeiture funds.
