Trump doesn't make that decision nor have any control over it.

Well, that was a quick thread.

Game over! I win! Drive home safe!

You guys are all barking up the wrong tree.
Trump is asking for 10% of the $50 Billion allocated by Congress in 2006 to build a secure "Fence" along the border. Obama voted for it and as President was supposed to supervise it's erection.

Didn't happen!

So, should not there be some $50 Billion sitting in a Department or bank somewhere?

Where did the money go? Seems no one wants to ask THAT question.

President Trump's administration is attempting to put that project back on track. The Democrats refuse to go along and complete the project they supposedly funded. Why are they then not considered to be the bad guys here?

There is no such $50 billion. Congress didn't "allocate" any such amounts.
