Air Force says Trump's border wall money grab will endanger national security (Daily Kos link): Donald Trump’s border wall money grab from military construction projects is endangering schools on military bases, a power substation in Puerto Rico, and national security. NBC News has obtained an Air Force report on the risks coming from delaying 51 projects around the world, and the details are scary.
Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska could be rendered completely unusable by a boiler failure that would force an evacuation and leave the base frozen and damaged.
“If not funded,” the main gate at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey, which indeed will not be funded thanks to Trump’s wall, “remains vulnerable to hostile penetration in the midst of contingency operations and an increased terrorist threat.”
So if you want to know where Trump’s priorities are, the answer is extremely simple: border wall. Border wall over educating military kids, border wall over power in Puerto Rico, border wall over safely storing munitions, border wall over keeping an Air Force base in Alaska from freezing, border wall over deterring Russian aggression.
