President Trump Visits San Diego To Review Border Wall Prototypes (Video)…

President Donald Trump traveled to San Diego today for a tour of eight border wall prototypes today along with a speech to members of the military at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.

This is President Trumps first trip to California as president. The peoples’ president spent about an hour reviewing the 30-foot wall segments near the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump’s promise of building a border wall was the primary visible promise made during the 2016 presidential campaign trail. As president, he has been steadfast in his push for the completed project.

“If you don’t have a wall system, we’re not going to have a country,” Trump said at the site of the prototypes. “There’s a lot of problems in Mexico. They have a lot of problems over there. And they have the cartels. And we’re fighting the cartels, and we’re fighting them hard. … But the fact is, if you don’t have a wall system, it would be bedlam, I imagine.”

      By up & up & up, presumably, you mean the cost, the cost which was supposed to be borne by Mexico. I’m all for the wall, but I’d like to see a fee or tax on outgoing wire transfers from the US to MX in order to help pay for the wall.

        Each state will save an enormous amount of money with fewer illegals. There’s a map floating around with the cost of illegals to each state. I believe the cost to CA is $21B and all states savings added up would pay for the wall many times over. Focusing on the cost of the wall is meaningless noise.

          last estimate I saw for CA was $25B a year now and that is not counting the money they are illegally making available for immigration lawyers here when ICE gets them ($50M from state and $5M from LA last I heard) + $113B at the federal level and this is most likely a very conservative estimate for both

        cyrus, by deporting many aliens from our soil and removing them from our welfare, WIC, EBT, etc., and above all not allowing them to send any money out of America and this figured out to be more than 7 billions right up front. Trump has some monies from the Congress some years past, so more money available. If you listened Trump did state how the money we save will be more than enough to build the wall. Having lived in Mexico several years, no president is ever a great person but a rich do nothing much of value for the people but keep them under control. PRI is the worst party and reminds me of moonbeam and democrat legislature in CA. When we stop invaders on our soil, many police in Mexico will not be getting the bribes they are now getting and mostly because Mexico doesn’t pay their police very much, so of course they will break laws for money. When I was there Mexico was a safe place where I could go at any time of day or night alone, but no more of that today. Elderly people attacked and robbed on the streets. By the way, CA is no longer the 6th largest economy except in moonbeams skull but in debt/bankruptcy and taxes disappear with nothing being done for which they were raised. Crime has grown to a stupendous amount thanks to moonbeam, and I hope Sec. Neilsen does go in and arrest mayors and moonbeam and toss their behinds in prison, huge fines, and than frankly hanged for being traitors to our country. They think that state laws here are superior to the fed laws. WRONG!

        @cyrus vance: From what I read a couple of days ago it appears that if we were to sue all the welfare monies spent on illegals it would pay for the wall and leave some money left over.
        I will never understand we these people receive such free hand-outs in their every need yet so many citizens are homeless not because they are alcoholics or drug addicts as many claim. No they have income but not enough to pay the sky high rents here in California.
        In California the sanctuary cities rather neglect the citizens in lieu of housing illegals working in the service industry in housing by HUD that was built to accommodate low income citizens. The waiting lists are now up to 10 years. Imagine that!

        By the way I really like the prototype wall with the strips. 🙂

      It is interesting to me that when President Trump is going into a dangerous state, he always makes a point of meeting with the military, police, border patrol, ICE or DHS when he arrives. That makes the point that it isn’t just President Trump you will be dealing with if you try to assassinate him. It has worked so far. I always pray for his safety as most of us do.

        Any opening is a handhold, a foothold, a place to wedge climbing devices, a place to initiate efforts to breach.

      The Berlin Wall had that roller thing on top, which I always thought was a great idea. Just try and get over that one! Of course if we had a little razor wire on the side, that would also be nice. I am sick and tired of paying for freeloaders. One thing is for sure, if this wall gets built, the Dems will go ape $hit on immigration, because that will be the only way left for them to change the political demographics in their favor.

        Razorwire, while formidible, is a handhold or a rappelling hook receptor. Adequate protective measures (our guys do it) negates that particular deterent.

        The Left will implode as their elite hang or rot in solitary. To be a Democrat will be as unpopular and ineffective a way to power as starting the Guy Fawkes Party in Britian. But those not yet in prison or the ground likely will attempt such an immigration manuever, and be as successful as they have been at thwarting MAGA. I see rails and tar for such.

    In those pictures that Sundance linked from. I guess, local media, they have pictures of a President Trump support rally being held a few miles from the prototype site; the rally is attended by all sorts of people, just like the campaign rallies e.g. black, white, asian, hispanic.

    Of course, they also have pics of “protesters”. You look at them and they are the typical thug, anarchist, illegal alien and phony wormen’s rights types (holding up signs supporting moslems – does oxymoron ring a bell?)

    Honestly, why not build a wall like they have in China so the Border Patrol could actually be on the wall patrolling it. It obviously doesn’t have to be be exactly like the Wall in China as that would take to long to build. But I suspect there’s a way to build something similar with concrete and iron. And sine Trump wants more steel plants in this country, maybe now is the time to give them some purchase orders.

    That was so exciting to see! Our President checking out the 8 prototypes and talking to those in charge of Border Security. The funding bill is on March 23rd. I want to believe there will be funding but at the same time don’t see why Democrats would vote in favor of it.

    I honestly think our President has a backup plan! I think he has laid the foundation to say that the Southern Border is a national security risk. Being that it is, he will utilize $10 Billion from this year’s DoD funding and $10 Billion from next year’s funding. It has already been appropriated for two years.

    I think he wants to continue to bury the Democrats by voting against the WALL!

      Agreed Flep,

      My two cents worth has been that PDJT would expose the slime in Congress for the scum that they are, and then build the wall from funds found elsewhere. In order to bolster national security.
      In the video, the border patrol agent holding the photograph mentioned specifically restoring law and order to the area, and how affective the present wall was, even though it was less than adequate.
      PDJT immediately recognized the agents wisdom, and repeated. “ there you have it folks”

      The agent was very switched on, when he stated that the Tijuana side was also improved.

      Goodness me. Day after day, he shows your Congress Critters to be the feckless fools that they are.

    Seriously, it seems like any wall with openings at the bottom could be exploited. Tie a small weight to the end of a rope, sling it over the wall, let the weight swing back toward you, grab the end of the rope and tie it off, then use the rope to climb over. I assume somebody has thought of this, right?

    Even if the wall isn’t perfect at the start, subsequent experience will factor into making the necessary adjustments. Rarely are such imposing undertakings foolproof from the get go.

    Therefore it should leave architectural room for redesign and modification where applicable. Hopefully that will be factored into total cost.

    The really important thing is to apply due diligence but not get lost in minor disputes over the frills and aesthetics.. If construction can begin relatively soon, just the fact that symbolism is becoming reality will provide massive political capital.

      I love that Trump already has so much building experience. He has built towers in New York and what would have been the tallest building in the Western hemisphere in Chicago until 9/11 happened and the plans were revamped. That Chicago Trump Tower is still supertall, and also positioned right at the edge of a river and in a very tight space too. He’s a pro. He knows how to build, he knows how to pick the right people for the building projects.
