It's all Congress's fault! White House says it can only build 33 miles of new border barrier


White House officials said Thursday that President Donald Trump will sign a hotly contested budget bill when lawmakers send it to him, despite the fact that it provides for only 33 miles of new barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump vowed in April 2017 that his long-promised border wall would be finished by the end of his first term in office.  

'It's certainly going to – yeah,' he told reporters then, answering a specific question about a four-year timeline and adding that 'we have plenty of time.'

But at the rate the White House has agreed to, the project could stretch through more than two administrations.
