U.S. Customs and Border Protection has put up just 1.7 miles of fencing with the $1.57 billion that Congress appropriated last year for President Donald Trump’s wall along the Mexican border, a federal judge was told.

A lawyer for the U.S. House of Representatives provided the information Tuesday to the judge in Oakland, California, who is weighing requests from 20 state attorneys general and the the Sierra Club to block Trump from using funds not authorized by Congress to build the wall.

President Trump responded Wednesday morning with the following two-part Twitter statement:

Much of the Wall being built at the Southern Border is a complete demolition and rebuilding of old and worthless barriers with a brand new Wall and footings. Problem is, the Haters say that is not a new Wall, but rather a renovation. Wrong, and we must build where most needed….

Also, tremendous work is being done on pure renovation – fixing existing Walls that are in bad condition and ineffective, and bringing them to a very high standard!

    My guess would be that the majority of the 1.57b was in the tremendous amount of renovation going on, after all why build new wall when the existing wall is useless. If the demorats and rinos were on board then I think new wall could be built along with the important renovations.

    Hey axxholk demos and rinos, get off your butts and work for the people and what is good for the USA.

    Walls, walls, walls. Really wish the focus was on the other tools at Trump’s disposal.
