    Trump took unspent money that was budgeted for constructing new schools for children of military personnel to pay for his vanity project.  So far only 16 miles of NEW fencing has been installed, with the remainder of the money having been spent on replacing 178 miles of existing border fencing.

    0.00832%. 6 billion of a 721 billion budget. 

    That wall will actually serve a national defense purpose so even the idea that the tiny percentage used is a "defunding" is beyond stupid.

    Yes. The money has to come from somewhere.
