Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Sunday said that “one way or the other” President Donald Trump will get funding for his proposed border wall.

“There are a lot of ways we can find money to help pay for this,” Sessions said on ABC’s “This Week.”

He said “there are other things” Trump could implement at the border to “create revenue that would pay for the wall.”

“There’s no doubt about that,” Sessions said. “We’re going to get it paid for one way or the other.”

Asked if Trump would sign off on a spending bill that didn’t include funding for the wall, Sessions said: “He’ll make those decisions.”

“I’m not engaged in the budget negotiations,” he said. “I believe Congress will eventually deliver.”
