Democrats say the list shows Trump is willing to cut needed defence spending and make the U.S. less secure just to finance his wall.
WATCH: March 11 — Trump budget to include request for $8.6B for border wall, six times what Congress previously approved
They’re suggesting that once lawmakers know which home-state projects could be targeted, they’ll be likelier to vote next week to override Trump’s veto of a measure aimed at preventing the cuts.
Hundreds of projects listed have a combined price tag of around $12.9 billion. Defence Department officials say some projects listed won’t be cut.
Trump has declared a national emergency and proposed steering $3.6 billion from military construction to his wall.
