Trump To Visit Border Wall In Yuma
President Donald Trump will spend time in Yuma to survey the border wall before his scheduled appearance in Phoenix this week, according to the White House.
Trump will receive a briefing Tuesday on wall construction and take part in a roundtable discussion with the local leaders and community members on border security.
The president will be joined by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf, Acting Deputy DHS Secretary Ken Cuccinelli, Customs and Border Protection Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan and other officials.
He will then head to Phoenix to speak at the Students for Trump Convention at Dream City Church. He’s expected to take the stage at 3:40 p.m.
It will be Trump’s third trip to Arizona during this year and his first time to the border in Yuma since 2017.
The president’s last visit to the state was May 5, when he visited a Honeywell facility that manufactures N95 face masks and participated in a roundtable on Native American issues.
In February, he held one of his rallies at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix.
