Donald Trump is visiting the US-Mexico border in Texas to promote one of the pillars of his presidency: his campaign against illegal immigration and building a wall along the southern border.

It is President Trump’s first time appearing in public since a violent mob of his supporters sieged the nation’s Capitol last week in an effort to halt the peaceful transition of power.

President Trump said in Alamo that the wall has been crucial for securing the border.
