President Trump and his visit to California

Por MRod

The president arrived in San Diego on Tuesday to learn about the models of the wall that were built on the border with Tijuana since October. His visit comes at a time of tension between the local government and the Trump administration, which recently sued the state over its immigration policies. Trump insists that the 20 million dollars will be paid by Mexico.

President Donald Trump arrived on Tuesday morning at the Miramar Military Air Base in San Diego, on his first visit to California in more than a year after he has been in power. His first stop was to get to know the eight prototypes of the wall, built on the border with Tijuana, Mexico. "For the people who say they do not want a wall, if we did not have walls here, we would not even have a country, not even a country," the president said, together with the officials and agents with whom he visited the models of the fence that he promised to build in the border with Mexico since he was in campaign.

Once before the cameras, the president began to ask questions to the official of the Border Patrol who accompanied him looking for answers that served as justifications to raise the wall with Mexico. "How was this here before the fence was built?" He asked; "It was a chaotic situation," the agent replied. They referred to the fence that was placed since the early 90's. "By the way, the state of California is begging us to build walls in some areas, they do not want to say that," said the president while defending his idea, which has been strongly rejected by legislators and civil organizations.

A day before his visit, Governor Jerry Brown sent an open letter to Trump telling him specifically that "in California we are focused on bridges, not walls." The president lashed out at Brown and said he does "very bad work in governing California." "This place is out of control," he said. Of course, what else would you expect from someone opposing Trump’s ideas?

The governor responded to these harsh comments through Twitter: "Thanks for the shout-out, @realDonaldTrump. But bridges are still better than walls. And California remains the 6th largest economy in the world and the most prosperous state in America. #Facts”. However, Trump insisted that the wall is a request from Californians: "We told them we need the whole wall, and there are certain areas where they really want us to build the wall, because people complain, because people come in."

When questioned about his preference among the eight prototypes built, he pointed out that it would be one that allowed to see the other side. "You need to know what's on the other side of the wall ... you can be two feet away from a criminal cartel and not know it," he explained. "What is the importance of being able to see through the wall?", insisted the president and the Border Patrol official, at his side, explained that it would allow him to warn neighboring authorities of any situation. With his questions to the border agent, Trump insisted on demonstrating the "dangers" of not having a wall, that is, of showing his point, of getting away with his terrific idea.
