WASHINGTON — Senior Trump administration officials are considering a plan to again divert billions of dollars in military funding to pay for border barrier construction next year, a way to circumvent congressional opposition to putting more taxpayer money toward the president's signature project, according to three administration officials.

The president has pledged to complete nearly 500 miles of new barrier by the 2020 election. But that construction goal will require a total of $18.4 billion in funding through 2020, far more than the administration has publicly disclosed, the administration's latest internal projections show. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/for-border-wall-officials-consider-diverting-billions-more-in-military-funds-1.599712
