Former President Donald Trump visits Texas border with Gov. Abbott
WESLACO, Texas (KOSA) - Former President Donald Trump will be making his return to Texas on Wednesday where he will be touring the border with Governor Greg Abbott.
Trump and Governor Abbott will be holding a press conference at the Weslaco Department of Public Safety at 11:30 a.m.
Following the press conference, Trump and Gov. Abbott will tour “the unfinished border wall” at 12:30 p.m.
Building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border was one of Trump’s campaign cornerstones in 2016. Earlier this month, Gov. Abbott announced that the state of Texas would be building a border wall using $250 million in state money and money from crowdfunding. Texas received $459,000 in private donations in just a week.
