President Trump threatened Tuesday to have the military build the remaining sections of the U.S.-Mexico border wall, appearing to revive a call to use Pentagon money to finish the project ahead of a meeting with congressional Democratic leaders opposed to the presidents funding request. For their part, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer put out a joint statement Monday arguing Trump and his party will own a government shutdown if they cant strike a deal.
People do not yet realize how much of the Wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built. If the Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country, the Military will build the remaining sections of the Wall. They know how important it is! Trump vowed, capping a series of tweets meant to set the stage for the White House summit.

Trump is not giving in.
Build the wall and MAGA!
Then Mad Dem Mattis will say no.
More bull, we’ll be right here a year from now.
There he stands like a StoneWall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Might as well get the military down there. The RAT scumbags could care less about protecting it’s citizens. All they care about is votes from the ILLEGALS. PLAIN AND SIMPLE.
BWWWWwwwaaaa call a Wambulance.
Trump .."let's do some transparency here in this meeting"
Trump...A lot of wall has been built...I will be proud to shut the gobmint down.
Watch the dem unions squawk if Trump uses the military as a labor force. Of course, Trump could pull a Truman and nationalize the unions as an “emergency” measure just like Harry the haberdasher did with the railroads. MAGA!!!
Hey Tony the Pussy, FU.
POTUS, Donald J. Trump......HANG TOUGH!!! If Traitor/Turncoats,Democrats, Schumer & Pelosi don not come around on funding the Border Wall....shut the government down!!! 80% of the the American people and voters are standing firm with you, POTUS, Trump!!!
Love America, love the wall.
Fu buddy, you suck. you cant face the truth
Threatens? SeaBees at the ready?
Can I steal that name Mad Dem Mattis? some sites worship him like they did sessions, before they finally found out he is the biggest traitor in the us.
F O a$$hole. KMA. I hope you can get your head out of your a$$ and support Trump. Eat m3.
He needs to address the American people and say he is sick of watching Americans die of drug overdose, Americans being shoved aside by people working under the table, schools being over crowded and healthcare dollars being spent. He wants Americans taken care of FIRST so he is willing to shut down the government to protect the American people
The Marine and Army construction battalions - good practice.
Not only should the President have the military build the Trump Wall, but he should tell Mexico that if they want to keep the current ports of entry open, they will have to supply the materials for building it. Otherwise, we will close the wall until it is complete. It would save them money, because the supplies priced in pesos would be less expensive than pricing them in dollars. And the President could rightfully say that Mexico paid for building the wall.
