Trump views border wall prototypes, after ousting Tillerson

Welcome to California President Trump! Now skip the wall and let us educate you

President Trump is coming to California

On Tuesday, President Trump traveled to San Diego to inspect border wall prototypes.

Trump's campaign pledge to build a massive wall along the border between the USA and Mexico has proven just as divisive outside Capitol Hill.

Mr Trump also criticised California governor Jerry Brown, saying he was doing a "terrible" job.

"Every state in our Union is subject to the laws and Constitution of the United States - including California".

During his visit, Trump took aim at so-called "sanctuary cities" in California - local governments that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration officials seeking to deport illegal immigrants.

"They shield criminals. You can't do that", he said. Provost said Congress has so far funded 40 miles of replacement wall - 14 miles in San Diego, 2 miles in Calexico, California, and 24 miles in El Paso, Texas.

"The taxes are way, way out of whack, and people are going to start to move pretty soon", Trump predicted.

"But bridges are still better than walls", Brown said.

If only the president and the nation could see the real California.

According to an invitation obtained by the Los Angeles Times, tickets for the event range from $35,000 just for the dinner up to $250,000 for the chance to meet Trump, attend a roundtable discussion and have a photo taken with him.

"You see in California we are focusing on bridges, not walls", Brown said.

"And if you don't [have] safety, meaning if you don't have this kind of wall, the drugs are pouring through in California, can't do it", he said.

Brown, who accuses the Trump administration of waging war on the country's most populous state, has said the law was crafted with input and support from California police. "In one year we did more damage to ISIS than other administrations, a certain other administration, did in many years", he said. "After you've examined your wall prototypes on the border, I invite you to head north to the Central Valley - the heart of California".

Homan said Pelosi's comments about federal agents terrorizing immigrant communities were "beyond the pale" and challenged Feinstein to change laws if she disagreed with how they are enforced.

President Donald Trump has landed in California at last.

After the inspection, Trump will address Marines in San Diego before flying to Los Angeles for a high-dollar fundraiser.

"These policies release risky criminal offenders to prey on innocent people, and nullify the federal law", the president said. "THIS MUST STOP!" he wrote. Obama EPA chief: Reg rollback won't stand MORE announced the lawsuit during a visit to Sacramento last week.

"You have to have see-through", Trump told reporters. But, he said, "I have to do it". He'll tour prototypes of a border wall, hoping to project momentum on a project he promised during his campaign but hasn't yet brought to fruition. "But here in San Diego, we view it much differently".

Jeff Schwilk, founder of San Diegans for Secure Borders and organiser of a pro-Trump rally, the city resolution does not reflect the views of many residents, who feel the border is not secure.
