    I guess Trump never went to school; he selected this fence and pocketed from it; "babies" never heard of hurricane winds or foundations etc. But yeah it is only our tax money going down the drain, so who cares. The deficit is growing faster than even the "virus" ; just let another President clean up this mess or not at all; Trump will make sure that he becomes the most dumb, naive, unschooled, corrupt "expensive" President in history, especially considering he dragged the "whole" family with him into the "gold" mine. Thank you America; take some lessons in "voting". Just keep up the stupidity here and the end result is known.

    A federal appeals court in Washington sided with House Democrats on Friday in their effort to block the Trump administration’s diversion of billions of dollars to build the president’s signature southern border wall.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit unanimously backed Congress’s power of the purse and said House lawmakers could proceed with their lawsuit alleging it was illegal for President Trump to transfer the money for the wall.

    House Democrats went to court claiming Trump violated the Constitution by ignoring congressional spending limits and diverting more than $6 billion allocated for other purposes to fund the wall at the border with Mexico. The administration invoked statutes it said allowed the president to repurpose appropriations.

    The ruling Friday is unlikely to be the final word in the controversy. The Justice Department did not respond to a request for comment.

    Just an question: How about what Trump already spent and how about the "portion" of it which ended up in his "pocket"?

    How is the government get that money back? Also it should be then be "mandatory" that such portion of the "wall" should be torn down.

    Unlikely to be any direct connection. But it is plausible that border wall contractors stay at a Trump resort, and leaves unprecedented legal tips to the resort after spending a large sum of money while staying there. I am sure there are other ways to pay Trump back that is perfectly legal, but extremely sleezy and unethical.

    Personally I don't think Trump is smart enough to know how to pull these things off, but he attracts very smart people to him that are unethical, who think up legal schemes to ensure Donald Trump profits from various government deals.

    Activists and allies of two O'odham groups protesting the construction of a border wall along ancestral tribal lands in southern Arizona temporarily blocked the highway leading to construction sites in the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.

    "This is a blockade in solidarity with the O'odham nation. This land is being desecrated every day as the border wall is constructed," an unidentified protester could be heard saying in the livestream video that the O'odham Anti Border Collective posted to their social media.

    "We're here to block workers coming and leaving from this job that desecrates the land."

    Activists said some of the vehicles hit some of the protesters, but did not report any major injuries on their social media.

    "We are not here to disrupt anyone's day. We understand that people need to work. The people need to also understand that we need water. The Indigenous sovereignty and the protection of sacred sites is way, way more important than a 40-hour workweek," the woman recording the livestream said in response to the vehicles charging at protesters.

    The ruling, naturally, does not apply to the border wall THAT IS BEING ERECTED AROUND THE WHITE HOUSE.

    As the Daily Kos puts it, Trump has already canceled plans for an election night party at his Washington, D.C., hotel, opting instead to stay at the White House, a decision with some serious loser stink.

    I just wonder who approved the "wall" around the White House? And are the "tax payers" again paying for it.

    Where there any Democrats consulted on this, or "votes" done about this expensive "joke" Why does n't Trump move to a prison; they have even bigger walls, he must like it much more.

    That is what you get in an dictatorship lots of "walls". In The Netherlands the King and Queen's palace are accessible and have only an wire fence along the property; it is very "open" and seldom an demonstration along it. But yeah "Trump" loves "bunkers" and spending tax payers money for himself , because of all he is doing, lots of people will hate him in an land with lots of guns.
