Joe Biden is quietly selling off Trump’s border wall

Aug 21, 2023 | Political News

The Biden administration is quietly selling off parts of Donald Trump's border wall to try to thwart Republicans who want to force it to be extended.

A website called GovPlanet, which offers online auctions for military surplus, listed hundreds of unused parts of the southern barrier in recent months.

Since April 81 steel square structural tubes – which would have been used within the wall's 30ft panels – have been sold for a profit of $2million.

On Tuesday officials sold over 700 28ft hollow beams in five separate lots for $212 each. Over a dozen are also up for grabs at auctions over the next two Tuesdays.
