    Default White House returns $2 billion from Trump's border wall to the military.

    Building a massive wall that spans the entire southern border and costs American taxpayers billions of dollars is not a serious policy solution or responsible use of federal funds," The White House Office of Management and Budget said in a briefing on Friday.

    While in the Oval Office, Trump built 52 miles of a new wall along the border between the US and Mexico, at an average cost of $46 million per mile, the budget office said. The border between the two countries stretches more than 1,900 miles, some of which already had barriers in place before Trump's election.

    President Joe Biden paused the redirection of funds for the wall on his first day in office. The administration then missed its own deadline for a long-term solution, and reportedly considered restarting some construction.

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbot on Thursday said he planned to continue building a wall along his state's border with Mexico. He planned to spend $1 billion on border security and a task force, The Texas Tribune reported.

    Biden's administration on Friday called for Congress to cancel other previously allocated funds for border wall projects.

    Biden talking about a "serious border policy" is laughable to the extreme

    It is good to see funding go back to the military, where it belongs.
