President Trump is prepared to re-allocate congressional spending devoted to other ventures including in Puerto Rico to build the wall in full.
House speaker Nancy Pelosi is contributing to the Wall effort with between $1-2 billion. Her contributions have some strings attached on them that do not apply to the spending reserved for the national emergency portion of this construction project.
