He won the main battle of the whole border barrier war this year - he got the most important work funded and into the pipeline. He will need a second term to gain complete operational control of the Southern border.
This year, the President freed up enough money to go on a construction tear, putting in hundreds of miles of the best barrier, where it is needed most. Even if he does not get another dollar in 2020 (unlikely), just finishing the work already funded is by far the biggest, hardest, and most important parts of the job. Even a relative RINO could wrap up the needed barrier construction after this in a four year term, with just the roughly $1.5 billion/year in the baseline budget.
