President Trump stressed the need for a border wall as he visited prototypes in California.
Speaking in San Diego Tuesday, the president said a southern border wall will save the country hundreds of millions of dollars.
He said it is critical to close loopholes smugglers and traffickers have been exploiting.
The president also slammed California politicians, saying the state’s sanctuary policies are putting American citizens at risk.
He also blasted the mayor of Oakland, saying her warning to illegals that ICE was conducting operations last month is a disgrace to the nation.
The president then headed to Miramar where he addressed members of the military.
