Military officials from the Pentagon were on Capitol Hill on Tuesday and disclosed to members of Congress how much Donald Trump’s latest political prank is costing U.S. taxpayers, the Associated Press reported.
Trump is set to waste untold millions deploying troops to the border for a non-emergency.
On Wednesday, the Pentagon told Reuters that about 7,000 troops could be deployed if needed. The Pentagon refused to discuss budget. We have no actual assessment of threat, and in any case, as the BBC pointed out, the caravan is months out, so even if it posed a threat, and it doesn’t, it won’t be here *until after the election.*
