US: President Biden cancels funding for Trump border wall

US President Joe Biden has cancelled the national emergency order used to fund Donald Trump’s border wall.

In a letter to Congress on Thursday, Mr Biden wrote that the order was “unwarranted” and said that no further tax dollars will be spent on the wall.

Trump declared a state of emergency over the southern border in 2019, which allowed him to bypass Congress and use military funds for its construction.

$25bn (£18bn) had been spent on the project by the time Donald Trump left office.
