"It's been increasingly hard to make sense of the things this administration says, and President Trump in particular", added Randy Serraglio, a spokesman for the Center for Biological Diversity.

Trump's campaign pledge to build a massive wall along the border between the USA and Mexico has proven just as divisive outside Capitol Hill.

The video also accused President Trump of making U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement his personal "army of hate" by more than doubling arrests of non-criminal immigrants.

On Tuesday, Trump introduced a new argument, asserting that "the wall will save hundreds of billions of dollars - many, many times what it will cost".

Mr. Trump made a point to criticize California's leadership and Gov.

Despite the tense relationship between Trump and the Golden State, Californians in support of the "big, attractive wall" were prepared to come out in force to welcome the president.

Now, Trump arrived in the most populous state in the country and looked at prototypes for what the proposed border wall may look like.

Homan said Pelosi's comments about federal agents terrorizing immigrant communities were "beyond the pale" and challenged Feinstein to change laws if she disagreed with how they are enforced.

Turkey condemns armed attack against Palestinian PM's convoy
President Donald Trump's Mideast envoy has condemned the attack on Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah's convoy in Gaza . The party dominates the Palestinian Authority that administers the parts of the occupied West Bank under Palestinian control.

He added: "The state of California is begging us to build walls in certain areas, they won't tell you that, but we said no we won't do it until we build the whole wall".

Earlier, about 250 Trump supporters rallied near San Diego's Otay Mesa border crossing. "And no, I think the governor's doing a awful job running the state of California".

"This is an environmental catastrophe, on top of a misallocation of government resources that could be used for health care or social services", Cody Petterson, president of the San Diego County Democrats for Environmental Action, said of the wall.

Trump first tweeted a photo of himself getting out of Marine One at Andrews Air Force Base with the caption: "Heading to see the BORDER WALL prototypes in California!". "They have the highest taxes in the United States". But Trump is scheduled to attend a GOP fundraiser in Beverly Hills later in the day.

Throughout the 2016 election, Trump campaigned on building a border wall and promised that he would make Mexico pay for it. President Donald Trump is en route to view wall prototypes at the U.S. -Mexico border.

He has been a vocal critic of the border wall, describing it as counterproductive to the state's economic growth. "We are coming out here to support our president and show him that there are a lot of California Trump supporters here, and we are all coming together and banding together to let him know that we're here for him", said San Diego resident Amy Sutton.

The tweet is likely the first of several volleys the President will lob at the state's continued policy of protecting illegal immigrants convicted of crimes from deportation by federal agents.

Gov. Jerry Brown is inviting President Donald Trump to come to California's Central Valley agricultural heartland while he is in the state to view border wall prototypes this week.
