Acting U.S. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said Saturday he has yet to choose which military projects may have funding reallocated to pay for border wall construction following President Trump's national emergency declaration.

"Very deliberately, we have not made any decisions," Shanahan said. The Pentagon is also still reviewing whether the wall is necessary to support the use of armed forces.
