Republican state Sen. Scott Sales believes the state of Montana could pay for President Trump's border wall.

After Mexico refused to pay for it and Congress refused to push the burden towards the taxpayers, Montana state Senate President Scott Sales (R-Bozeman) has suggested that they could fund the building of border wall, according to RawStory.

On the day of Trump’s primetime address, Sales requested a bill draft to “appropriate funds for border wall funding.”

Not only is the state a thousand miles away from the Mexico border, it does not seem financially capable of finding the $5.7 billion that Trump has requested for the wall. In fact, the Montana government spends less than half that in a year.
