SAN DIEGO (AP) — President Donald Trump has won a judge's permission to build a border wall with Mexico. Now all he needs is the money.

On Tuesday, a federal judge in San Diego rejected arguments that the administration overreached by waiving requirements for environmental and other reviews before construction can start.

Judge Gonzalo Curiel — whose objectivity Trump had questioned during his presidential campaign — wrote that the court couldn't consider whether building a border wall was "politically wise or prudent."

Trump tweeted that he'd scored a "big legal win" but he may yet hit another kind of wall.

Congress has yet to fund the project. This month, the Senate rejected a request for $18 billion.
