Money for Hurricane Harvey relief may fund Trump's border wall: source

Source: ABC Houston

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KTRK) --
The White House is directing the Army Corps of Engineers to find money within its own budget to fund President Trump's border wall under a national emergency declaration, including money earmarked for Hurricane Harvey relief.

Sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News the White House specifically asked the Corps to examine what funds could be redirected to the border wall from a $13.9 billion emergency supplemental designed to fund more than 50 disaster relief projects in California, Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico.

A U.S. official told ABC News the money could be used to build as much as 315 miles of border wall, under the direction of the Army Corps of Engineers.

News came as President Trump made a visit to the border between the U.S. and Mexico at McAllen, Texas, where he met with state officials.

4. Relax. Right now I suspect this whole thing is his way of trying to put pressure on our people but

as long as Pelosi sticks to her guns there is little he can actually legally do as Congress has the powers of the purse under the Constitution and not Trump.
