President Donald Trump plans to ask Congress for increased funding for his proposed border wall to get the project done more quickly, he said Tuesday.

The president’s planned request has major political implications. He has previously threatened to shut down the government at the end of September if lawmakers do not meet his funding demands for the proposed structure on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump made the comment as he met with Republican members of Congress about immigration on Tuesday.
