Pentagon Yet to Decide Where to Get Trump's Border Wall Money

The Pentagon Friday afternoon said that it still didn’t know where the money for the border wall was going following President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency. “We have ID’d funding that’s unobligated and available, but it’s not been decided that these specific programs get deferred, cancelled or cut to divert money to a border wall,” a Defense official told The Daily Beast. Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, who has been traveling abroad this week, has to affirm implementation of Trump’s decision and then eventually decide what particular projects are paused, cut or axed. —Spencer Ackerman
