Trump Vows to Build Wall Without Congress

Published

on

President Donald J. Trump vowed Tuesday morning to build his promised Southern border wall even if Congress will not vote to fund it.

“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!” he said on Twitter.

The first part of the Tweet is a clear exaggeration. Some parts of an existing border fence have been reinforced situationally, like when members of the migrant caravan from South America stormed the border near the San Ysidro Port of Entry over the past two weeks. By and large, though, and much to the chagrin of Trump supporters, there is no wall, as promised.

But Trump appeared steadfast in delivering on his promise Tuesday.

In fact, the wall would be the perfect job for The United States Army Corps of Engineers. Made up of 37,000 civilian and military personnel, the organization is a division of the Department of Defense (DOD). Since the DOD is a federal agency in the executive branch, the Army Corps of Engineers falls directly under the purview of  Trump. “Infrastructure Support” is one of the primary activities undertaken by the organization, which is one of the largest public engineering and construction firms in the world.

Trump knows that he will need to deliver on his promise of a wall if he wants to maintain support and momentum going into the 2020 election cycle. If Tuesday’s Tweet is to be believed, Americans could see if he has what it takes to defy Congress and get the job done.
