An 8-year-old scaled a replica of President Trump's 'virtually impenetrable' border wall


After promising that Mexico would pay for the wall along the United State's southern border, the Defense Department is largely picking up the bill for President Donald Trump's main campaign promise. 

After the president declared a national emergency, the department redirected $3.6 billion from military construction projects. 

A further $601 million has been redirected from the Treasury Department’s forfeiture fund, while the Pentagon has also had to redirect $2.5 billion from other priorities. 

The move came after Congress repeatedly refused to provide the $13.3 billion that President Trump wanted for the wall.
