So why did he wait 2 years?
Given that 'building a wall' (and locking up govt officials using private email accounts) was pretty much campaign promise 1 for the orange thing, why did he wait 2 years to ask for the money? It's not as if the outcome of mid-terms couldn't be predicted. Looks like a pathetic bit of cry baby game playing. He couldn't get the idea past his republican colleagues, so he waits until they lose the house so he can blame someone else.
