On Thursday, President Donald Trump told reporters that he plans to build a $1 trillion wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Trump told the press that he has decided on the wall based on “the most common sense.”
The wall will cost $1,400 per foot, he said, but it will be “very inexpensive.”
The President said that the cost of the wall will be $100 per foot on average.
The cost of a 2,000-foot wall will range from $10,000 to $40,000 per foot.
The price will be determined by the wall’s location and its effectiveness.
But Trump did not specify exactly how much the wall would cost.
Trump’s spokesman, Sarah Sanders, said the President believes that the wall “will cost less than $10 billion.”
“This is what our budget is for, which is a wall of concrete,” Sanders said.
“We’re going to build the wall of cement.”
The Trump administration also released a budget on Thursday that estimated that the administration would need to spend $11 billion to build and maintain the wall.
The budget also estimated that Trump’s budget request would require a new round of federal aid for the next decade.
“The Trump Administration will require additional $11.4 billion in additional federal funding for FY 2018-2019, which will be provided to states to help cover the cost and construction of the border wall,” the budget stated.
“In addition, Congress has requested $1.6 billion to provide states with additional funding for the construction of additional fencing.”
The administration said the additional funding will come from a new “border security” spending plan that includes a $2.7 billion infusion for border security.
It added that the supplemental spending for border control will be included in the 2018 budget for the House and Senate.
The White House said the supplemental border security spending plan will be released as early as Friday.
“If the House or Senate does not approve a supplemental appropriations bill by the end of September, we will make a statement on this at the end.
That is when we will take a look at how we will get to a final appropriations bill,” Sanders told reporters.
The Wall St. Journal reported that Trump is planning to use the supplemental funding to help states like New York, California and Arizona, which are already spending a lot of money on border security efforts.
The Trump Administration is planning a wall that will cost a lot more than $1 billion to construct.
But the cost will not be as high as some other Trump projects, such as a $3.8 billion expansion of the Keystone XL pipeline and the border fencing that will be built by the U,S.
Customs and Border Protection.
The wall is expected to cost $8.6 trillion to build, and Trump’s administration has estimated that it will cost about $4.3 trillion.
“A $10-billion wall in the United States would be the costliest border security project in the history of the United Kingdom and Europe,” said John Hoeffel, president of the American Border Patrol Federation, in a statement Thursday.
If the cost is lower than he says it is, that should be the most important lesson the American people should learn from this administration,” Hoepp said. “
President Trump is not being transparent about the cost.
If the cost is lower than he says it is, that should be the most important lesson the American people should learn from this administration,” Hoepp said.
The border wall could be a key issue in the upcoming midterm elections.
The House passed a bill Thursday that would authorize $1-trillion for the wall, but the Senate has yet to vote on the bill.
A Republican leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, has said that Republicans will pass a bill if the wall is funded.
“They can do it if they want to do it.
I will do anything I have to do to get it done.
We are going to get the wall built,” McConnell said Wednesday on ABC’s “This Week.”
“I don’t know if we’re going get to the wall before November, but we will.”
