Nice. Maybe we can talk about funding after Schmuck Schumer deals on border security.

The original Obama-era plan called for costs to be split among New York state, New Jersey and the federal government.

'A local project'

But in a letter Friday, the Trump administration notified New York and New Jersey that the Obama-era deal was now "non-existent" because the states recently requested that their portions be covered by loans from the federal government -- meaning Washington would supply all of the initial funding for what the Trump White House is calling "a local project."

Have no problem with this. States were supposed to provide their portion of the funding and are now wanting the federal government to do so. My guess is that this was their thought process all along and assumed a Hillary administration wouldn't bat an eye at it.
