In line with promises of new gear, Trump said the US would "lead again" on the final frontier and introduced his administration's strategy for space exploration "recognizes space is a war-fighting domain". He said the tallest walls possible are needed because, "these are like professional mountain climbers, these are incredible climbers".
"If you don't have a wall system ... we're not gonna have a country", he said. "Some of them they can". He described the existing wall as "lousy" but noted it stopped as much as 95 percent of attempted illegal entry.
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.
He also called for the wall to be see-through, repeating his weird statement about a transparent wall being crucial to stop cartels from smuggling drugs into the U.S.
"For the people that say 'No wall, ' if you didn't have walls over here, you wouldn't even have a country", Trump said while standing in front of a series of prototype wall sections showing different designs. "Now we have equipment to take care of that, x-ray equipment, etc". It's the latest effort by opponents to halt what President Trump describes as his "big lovely border wall". Nobody fought them like we fought them.
"Without a wall there would be bedlam, I imagine", he added.
Trump blasted California's Democratic Gov.
He said sanctuary cities nullify federal law and violate the United States' Constitution. "We no longer have that counterweight to Trump's extreme and disruptive tendencies", said Bravo.
Trump had campaigned against NAFTA as a job killer that he said encouraged American companies to move factories to Mexico to exploit cheap labour.
"The Center for Immigration Studies repeatedly circulates white nationalist and anti-Semitic writers and hypes the criminality of immigrants", the SPLC said. "That shouldn't happen in America-a nation of law and order".
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman quit and accused top Trump administration officials of releasing "misleading facts" over recent raids in California.
Earlier Tuesday, Trump tweeted out a Center for Immigration Studies report, arguing that the $18 billion border wall "will pay for itself" by preventing illegal immigrants from making use of social programs. Authorities separated people who were there to support Trump from those who came out to voice their discontent.
