President Trump is in McAllen, Texas on Thursday to look over the progress of the border wall.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took to Twitter to announce the President’s trip. In a tweet, Sanders said that the President will “meet with those on the front lines of the national security and humanitarian crises”.
This mirrors the President’s Oval Office Address to the nation he gave on Tuesday. In it, he furthered his demands for a border wall that would be a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall.
“I hope he takes the time to visit with the common man, not just the politicians because it is important that he sees, it is important that he knows about it. He needs to know what’s occurring on the border and the fact that he sees it when he goes back and he talks to people about it, he speaks from an educated perspective,” said Adolpho Telles, the Chairman for the El Paso Republican Party.
