Trump to Visit Border Wall This Month

As President Trump battles with congressional Democrats to fund a border wall on the boundary between Mexico and the United States, he will take a trip to see prototypes of the proposed barrier this month, according to Axios.

Following the president’s State of the Union address on January 30, he will travel to San Diego, the site of prototype construction. He originally planned on seeing his first look at the wall this week but decided on another event, Axios reported:

The field trip to see the prototypes had been planned for this week, but was pushed back after Trump decided to attend tonight’s college football championship.

Trump has been demanding that any deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program be coupled with appropriated funds for the wall. However, congressional Democrats have been intransigent on any financing for the president’s signature campaign promise, even if it means the government will shut down and hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants will face deportation.

For his part, Trump has remained absolutely committed to the wall, seeing the project as critical to his presidency’s success. “Wall, or no deal,” Trump has said to aides, Axios reported.
