Trump: Wall being built 'regardless of money'

United States President Donald Trump announced that the spending bill agreed on by lawmakers will include $23 billion for border security. He added that the wall on the Mexican border is still being built, despite reports that only around $1.4 billion has been allocated for its construction.

"Was just presented the concept and parameters of the Border Security Deal by hard working Senator Richard Shelby. Looking over all aspects knowing that this will be hooked up with lots of money from other sources. Will be getting almost $23 BILLION for Border Security. Regardless of Wall money, it is being built as we speak!" Trump wrote on Twitter. The president has not yet signed the bill which would prevent another government shutdown on Friday. He stated on Tuesday that he is not "thrilled" about the bipartisan deal, as he previously insisted on over $5 billion for the wall.
