Sharjah24 – Reuters: U.S. President Donald Trump arrived in San Diego, California on Tuesday. During his first official visit to the state, Trump is scheduled to visit eight border wall prototypes constructed as part of his promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The prototypes, designed by six U.S.-based companies and unveiled last October, stand a few feet apart on the eastern edge of San Diego, several hundred feet from the rusty, stunted existing fence, part of a patchwork barrier that winds along the 1,954-mile frontier between the two countries.

Trump has sought $18 billion in funding to build the wall over the next two years.
