Mexico is not paying but the wall is going to be built. I, and many others, do not care who pays as long as that wall goes up.
Trump May Get His Wall After All
That projection does not take into account additional funding for 86 miles of new primary wall, 24 miles of new levee wall, and 131 miles of Pentagon-funded wall that the White House had already secured before the Supreme Court’s decision in July. If all that fencing is built, President Trump will be able to boast of an additional 241 miles of wall, bringing the total to 1,134 miles, covering 58% of the southern border.


During the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump promised to build "a big, beautiful wall" and to make Mexico pay for it. He has thus far argued that the renegotiation of trade deals with Mexico fulfills the latter promise. But even the slipperiest political rhetoric cannot suffice to create the illusion of a border wall where none exists. Over the past month, against all odds and expectations, President Trump has at last shown progress on fulfilling that central campaign promise. Most impressive of all, his critics continue to underestimate his political skill.

yes.

by diverting Military funds

it's pretty neat to see trumpers, who once pretended to fully support the Military, all of a sudden be thrilled by taking away their funding

Kentucky being one of the biggest losers. Go figure.

It is not as bad as you say it is, but of course, it never is. The wall will be a vote getter from the minorities like Blacks and Hispanics who do not want illegals taking their jobs. And they know wages will rise with less illegals in the job market. Democrats counting on their votes are going to suffer. Trump is locking in his 2020 victory.

yes it actually is, he's taking $3.6 billion away from Military projects

it's going to hurt the economies of the states/provinces affected the most (Utah, Hawaii, Kentucky, South Carolina) as well as weaken our Military

if anything this will cost him votes, especially from the Military and people in states affected.

this is being covered more by local outlets of places affected the most, and more people listen/read/believe their local news than national news


it also may impact the reelection of Senators in the places affected most (McConnell, Graham, etc), which I'm totally fine with

The right doesn't care about the military or our soldiers. They never really did. They just want to get their way. And they don't care who they have to hurt or what laws they have to break to get it.

I thought Mexico was paying for the wall?

Of course it is being covered because it is a negative about Trump. The military still loves Trump. And they have had years of negative press already. As far as McConnell he is a permanent fixture and so is Graham. They will not leave the Senate until they want to.

That is a lie and you know it. The Right has consistently supported the military. They were not the ones spitting on Vietnam vets.
what laws they have to break to get it
What laws have they broken? Be specific.
