Not So Fast: U.S. Military Not Yet Convinced Border Wall A Necessity

Acting U.S. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said Saturday he hasn't decided whether a border wall with Mexico was a military necessity.

Reuters reports it hasn't been decided how much Pentagon money would be used to build it, either.

On Friday, President Donald Trump declared a national emergency in a bid to fund his promised wall without congressional approval.

By declaring a national emergency, Trump can use certain Department of Defense funding to build it.
