White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow confirmed reports that President Trump will ask Congress for $8.6 billion in additional funding to build a border wall as part of his 2020 budget proposal.
Why it matters: The request, first reported by Reuters on Sunday, will certainly provoke another partisan slugfest over wall funding, which led to a historic government shutdown earlier this year and a national emergency declaration after Trump failed to secure funds. The proposal will include $5 billion in funding for the Department of Homeland Security to continue building sections of the wall and $3.6 billion for the Pentagon’s military construction budget, according to Reuters.
