Supreme court allows Trump to use funds for border wall

The US Supreme Court cleared the way for Donald Trump to use billions in Pentagon funds to build a border wall.

The decision allows the Trump administration to use approximately $billion approved by Congress for the Pentagon to help in building wall along the US-Mexico border.

The court ruled by five votes to four to block a ruling by a federal judge in California that barred the president from spending the money on the wall.

the money will be used for wall projects in California, Arizona and New Mexico.

The wall, dividing the US and Mexico, was Mr Trump’s major campaign promise during the 2016 election.

It is fiercely opposed by Democrats.
