President Donald Trump will make his third visit to Arizona in 2020, this time to mark the completion of the 200th mile of the United States-Mexico border wall.
The president is scheduled to visit Yuma on Tuesday, June 23, to celebrate the milestone, receive a briefing on the border fence construction, and thank U.S. Border Patrol and law enforcement for their efforts, the Yuma Sun reported, citing White House officials.
President Trump will also join a discussion with local community and elected leaders on border security.
Expected to join the president in Yuma are acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf, acting Deputy DHS Secretary Ken Cuccinelli, Customs and Border Protection acting Commissioner Mark Morgan, and other officials.
After touring the border wall system, the president will fly to Phoenix to speak at the Students for Trump Convention at Dream City Church.
According to Arizona-based KTAR News, this will be President Trump’s third trip to the state during this election year and his first time to the border in Yuma since 2017.
In May, the president visited a Honeywell facility that manufactures N95 face masks and participated in a roundtable on Native American issues. In February, he held one of his signature rallies in front of a full house at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix.
In 2017, the president also made a trip to Yuma with U.S. Marines and Customs and Border Protection agents.
