    How many miles of wall has the Donald actually been able to get funded (just a presidential for instance, we could use another example with another president)?
    Right indeed, I'm sure you could look up how much he took from the pentagon budget by declaring an emergency...no congressional input...just the opposite in fact.

    It appears he might get from one to several billon $'s from the pentagon for his wall. It's not a done deal yet.

    (aside: I'm not sure he even cares about the wall so much, but it was something that helped get him elected so he is trying to get it done. Similar to Al gore supporting adding corn based ethanol to gasoline:
    http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/...ve-suppor.html
    " Former vice president Al Gore said Monday that he regrets supporting first-generation corn-based ethanol subsidies while he was in office.
    Reuters reports that Gore said his support for corn-based ethanol subsidies was rooted more in his desire to cultivate farm votes for his presidential run in 2000 than in doing what was right for the environment:")



    So he may direct a couple $ billion out of a $1.6 trillion budget, and has to declare an emergency to do it. I guess that is near total control after all...
