President Trump says his border wall is being built "very rapidly." Speaking at the White House, Trump predicted that close to 500 miles of wall will be built by the end of next year.
Democrats are ripping Trump for diverting more than three-billion-dollars from Defense Department funds for wall construction.
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Trump is "willing to cannibalize already allocated military funding to boost his own ego."He also cited Trump's campaign promises that Mexico would pay for the wall.
