While the liberal media crows about nothing burgers, Trump is making good on his promises.
The left tries to distract us from what’s really going on. President Trump is strengthening our economy, fighting ISIS, and is working to end illegal immigration.
And this week was another big, big win.

From Daily Wire:
A House spending bill that quietly moved forward on Tuesday funds all of Trump’s initial $1.6 billion wall plan for the U.S.-Mexican border. The funding comes as part of the fiscal 2018 Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill.
The plan was released Tuesday by the House Appropriations Committee and a subcommittee moved the plan forward on Wednesday.
While the plan makes good on one of Trump’s top campaign promises in 2016, it also moves away from another pledge he made on the trail: Mexico will pay for the border wall. But Trump has more recently said the U.S. will pay first and Mexico will reimburse, or fund in other ways.
House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee Chairman John Carter praised the bill.
“Keeping Americans safe by protecting our homeland is a top priority. This funding bill provides the resources to begin building a wall along our southern border, enhance our existing border security infrastructure, hire more border patrol agents, and fund detention operations,” he said.
It’s surprising that even many conservative sites haven’t covered this story with the attention it deserves.
One billion is going to go a long way in building that wall. Trust us, Trump knows how to get construction projects done on time, and under budget. This won’t even be the first government project he’s helped oversee.
Some of you might be upset that the cash didn’t come directly from Mexico. But the president made it clear that if we waited for Mexico to give us the money upfront, we might have to wait a year or two. Or more.
This way, the wall goes up ASAP, putting pressure on Mexico and its lax border security. Once the wall is up, they cannot find ways to delay or put off reimbursing us. Trump might just levy a tax on Mexico goods. Why not?
This is what it looks likes when a politician actually fulfills his campaign promises. Weird, I know. We haven’t seen this in a long while.
But get used to it. America is going to start to win again. This is only the beginning.
