Trump visits the southern border of the United States at the invitation of the governor of Texas abroad
Former US President Donald Trump plans to visit the US southern border with Mexico on June 30. He is doing so at the invitation of Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
Trump’s successor Joe Biden, as one of his first policy actions in January, suspended funding to build massive border walls. Extensions of wall and fencing already exist along the 3,200 km southern US border, but Trump pledged to build more fences during his 2016 campaign. Trump said this would prevent more immigrants from entering the United States.
Abbott announced last week that he will continue building the wall in his state regardless of the Washington administration’s plans. It is not known how he intends to finance this. The governor is among a group of Republicans who accuse Biden of creating a border crisis with his immigration policy, which is more liberal than Trump’s.
Trump described the border region as a “disaster area” in his call about the visit.
