President Trump makes his first visit as president to California Tuesday.
The President is expected to speak to troops, attend a fundraiser and inspect recently constructed prototypes for a border wall with Mexico. The visit comes amid tension between the two governments, President Trump’s administration has been at odds with California Democrats over policies from immigration to tax reform.
Meanwhile, advocacy groups were expected to begin protesting before Air Force One lands today in a state where voters supported Hillary Clinton by a nearly 2-to-1 margin in 2016.
