CNN Report: Claims Trump Will Ask Congress to Pay For Wall, Not Mexico

As far as we can tell, this report originated at CNN, so take this with a grain of salt. According to this report, Trump would like to fund the border wall through the appropriations process. And this could happen as soon as April. So, do you buy this report, or is it just fake news?

According to GOP sources, President-elect Donald Trump has expressed his intention to Congressional Republicans that he would prefer to fund the much-hyped border wall with Mexico via the appropriations process. This could happen as soon as April.

Obviously, this will come as a big surprise to many of his supporters, as Trump continuously said on the campaign trail that Mexico would pay for the proposed wall.

According to CNN, Trump has argued that he has authorization to build the wall through a 2006 law, but he still needs to get funding for the project.
