President Donald Trump this week is celebrating a U.S. Supreme Court decision allowing his administration to spend $2.5 billion in Pentagon funding for his border wall on the U.S. southern border.
“Wow!” Trump tweeted. “Big VICTORY on the Wall. The United States Supreme Court overturns lower court injunction, allows Southern Border Wall to proceed. Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!”
Lawmakers on the other side of the aisle expressed a different opinion.
U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., described the ruling as “a deeply regrettable and nonsensical decision.”
