President Trump informed reporters that he plans to request more funds from Congress to build the wall along American’s southern border during a lunch with Republican leadership on Tuesday.

“We’re discussing today the funding of the wall, which we very much need. We started the wall. We’re spending a lot of energy and a lot of time and started up in San Diego and other places. It’s under construction now,” Trump said. “We have $1.6 billion, but we’re going to ask for an increase in wall spending so we can finish it quicker.”

“It stops the drugs, it stops people that we don’t want to have, and it gives us security and safety,” Trump said.
