Pentagon halts border wall construction paid for with defense funds redirected by Trump
About 127 defense department projects were initially paused in September 2019 after Defense Secretary Mark Esper signed off on the White House request to use $3.6 billion in military construction funds, defense officials told CBS News at the time.

A Biden administration official said border wall construction under the Trump administration has tied up "more than $14 billion in taxpayer funds." President Trump's declaration of emergency at the border greenlighted the transfer of billions in building contracts through the Army Corps of Engineers.

2018:

The U.S. spends more on defense (over $600 billion) than the next seven countries combined, accounts for 15 percent of the federal budget – representing half of all discretionary spending

For more than two decades the Pentagon has been unable to complete a financial audit. In recent years we learned it cannot provide adequate documentation for $6.5 trillion worth of year-end adjustments and it has failed to pursue reforms that could save billions. Waste and inefficiency runs rampant in the Department of Defense. Yet, Congress does little to address these issues, presumably, to look more “pro-military” to voters.
