Massive Pentagon Decision May Have Just Handed Trump 2020

Months after President Donald Trump declared a national emergency for the border crisis, progress is finally being made. The Department of Defense authorized nearly $1 billion for Trump’s campaign-promised border wall.

The Pentagon announced on Tuesday that two different companies have been given $976 million in contracts to start building portions of the border wall, CNN reported.

SLSCO Ltd., a company based in Texas, has been given a $789 million contract to build a wall in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, and Barnard Construction Company, based in Montana, has been given a $187 million contract for work in Yuma, Arizona.

Department of Defense spokesman Lt. Col. Jamie Davis said that the wall in the El Paso border sector in Santa Teresa would include a “30-foot bollard fencing and a five-foot anti-climb plate.”

The Yuma sector project includes an “18-foot bollard fencing and a five-foot anti-climb plate.”

These projects are both expected to be completed by October 2020, one month before the presidential election.

These are the first funds awarded for the border wall since Trump announced a national emergency for the border crisis in February.

The Pentagon announced its decision to transfer military funds for border wall construction last month before finally awarding the funds on Tuesday.

As expected, Democrats were absolutely furious.

In a media release published on March 25, a number of Senate Democrats demanded answers from acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan.

“We strongly object to both the substance of the funding transfer, and to the Department implementing the transfer without seeking the approval of the congressional defense committees and in violation of provisions in the defense appropriation itself,” the letter read.

It’s important to note that the Pentagon doesn’t need approval from Congress before transferring funds.

But it’s understandable why Democrats would be upset — the Department of Defense is practically handing Trump the 2020 election.

Trump supporters voted for him with the expectation that he would do something to stop the border crisis, but he has been somewhat ineffective as lawmakers have refused to cooperate.

Now that portions of the wall are finally being built, Trump’s base will be energized and some disillusioned conservatives might be more willing to throw their support behind Trump once again.

    We can thank SCOTUS and John Roberts for the crisis we have now, siding with the libtard lefties against Trumps orders to only allow “asylum” applicants at border crossings and NOT just any lawbreaker that can crawl, climb a fence, or wade across the border anywhere! Trump had EVERY RIGHT to limit seekers to LEGAL crossings only!

    >>> Now about that approved Steel Slat wall design. The PROVEN Israeli design was ….REJECTED!

    >>> BTW, The Drug Cartels approve the Steel Slat design.

    In October 2017, six contractors commissioned by the Trump administration built eight different border wall prototypes in San Diego near the U.S.-Mexico border. Customs and Border Protection, an agency run under the Department of Homeland Security, then conducted tests on the prototypes to check for vulnerabilities. The agency produced an internal report in February indicating that inspectors were able to breach the steel slat prototype with a saw. NBC obtained a picture of the resulting hole:

    Nice picture of the hole!!

    Holes can be plugged with painted wood posts and camouflaged afterwards very easily.
