Donald Trump May Cut School Funding For Military Kids To Funds Border Wall
Donald Trump wants his border wall and he’s willing to do anything to get it, including cutting school funding for military kids.
Trump previously purpose some ideas of how he could get funded for the walll between the US and Mexico, but his latest one has many people scratching their heads.
According to the New York Post, the Trump administration has put forth a plan that would take money from youth education programs and schools attended by the children of US service members. On Monday, Pentagon officials offered to slice up some of the military’s $1.2 billion in educational funds — sending a list to Congress of proposed projects that could be cut.
It was said that the funds would be used to build sections of the border wall and replacing them later.
This move comes after President Trump asked for over $8.5 billion in his 2020 budget request earlier this month to help pay for his border wall after being denied funding by Democrats in February. Later in the month he declared a national emergency along the border.
It’s unclear how serious Trump is about this proposal. While we wait and see what happens next, let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
