Trump also insisted that California political leaders actually want walls, despite what they say in opposition. “They don’t care about the kind of things that you and I care about”. He said the tallest walls possible are needed because, “these are like professional mountain climbers, these are incredible climbers”.
“You see, in California we are focusing on bridges, not walls”, Brown, a Democrat, said in a letter sent to Trump. A spokesman for the governor indicated he had no idea what Trump was talking about. “He’s just trying to divide us in every way he possibly can”, said one demonstrator. “And if you don’t have safety, meaning if you don’t have this kind of (border) wall, drugs are pouring through in California”. “It’s not just a wall. It’s nothing more than a 6th century solution to a 21st century problem”. The trip came amid an escalating battle between his administration and the liberal state, which has refused to help federal agents detain immigrants in the USA illegally. “I’m not exactly sure where (Trump) got that from”.

Mexico could be off the hook for the multi-billion dollar bill for President Trump’s border wall – as the commander-in-chief tweeted Tuesday about a report that contends the barrier will pay for itself. I think it’s something that – it doesn’t have to do with the wall.
National news outlets attempted to make sense of that tweet, without success.
José Gonzalez, 21, stopped to snap a photo of the protesters holding signs, including one that read: “Wall off Putin!” in reference to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has a seemingly close relationship with Trump. The trip will mark his first visit to California since entering the White House. Tractor-trailer trucks on the USA side blocked the view from Mexico of all but the tops of the wall prototypes.
From there he is expected to depart to Los Angeles where he will be attending a fundraising event. Although exact routes are never released for security reasons, police in the past have released lists of areas that motorists should avoid, but no such list has been released for Trump’s visit. But even in that case, the president is wrong.
“Proceeds benefit the Trump Victory reelection campaign and various RNC accounts”.
The White House did not respond to a request for evidence supporting Trump’s statement.
The US President has retained his election commitment to build a wall along the California-Mexico border and went so far as to claim on Tuesday: “If you don’t have a wall system, you won’t have a country”. It also expressed the city’s intent to divest from the companies involved in the construction, financing and design of the wall.
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.
