After viewing the wall prototypes in an area of the border heavily cordoned off and far from the rallies on the US side, Trump was then expected to address Marines in San Diego before attending a high-dollar fundraiser in Los Angeles, where he'll stay overnight.

The federal Justice Department recently filed a lawsuit over sanctuary city legislation, and California has filed a suit at the federal government over plans to expedite construction of the border wall.

On the other side of the border, in Tijuana, Mexico, residents laughed off the idea that the monolithic slabs will stop desperate immigrants.
But experts say Trump shouldn't appear to choose any prototype as his favorite for fear of seeming to influence the rigid procurement process. "But people are always looking for a way to get over - out of necessity, not because we want to". "In any event, we'll handle it".
Trump supporters are organizing their own rally to celebrate the presidential visit.
