The US President Donald trump will receive $ 2.5 billion for the construction of a wall on the border with Mexico. This became known from the decision of the U.S. Supreme court, reports CNN.
The Supreme court reversed the decision of the lower court which considered such a waste of budget money, illegal. The funds will be obtained from the funds of the Pentagon.
On 4 July the court of appeal in San Francisco rejected the request of the presidential administration on the revision of the balance of the Ministry of defence for the construction of the border wall.
In may the court of the state of California imposed a temporary ban on the use of budget funds for construction of the wall, explaining his decision by the fact that Congress had made no provision for this money for the construction of the object.

It was expected that with this money we will build more 128 kilometers of the border of the object.
