The Latest: Trump lands in San Diego to view wall prototypes

Friends and foes of President Donald Trump rallied Tuesday ahead of his visit to the border wall prototypes.

Trump said Tuesday at California's Marine Corps Air Station Miramar that the nation's military had been "asked to do more with less" for too long.

"I think Governor Brown does a very poor job running California", Trump said.

He further slammed the Democrat for immigration and tax policy adding that while he thought Brown was a "nice guy" but "has not done the job".

"I even think they'll try to cross with those pole vaults that they use in the Olympics", he said as he awaited Trump's visit. "They don't care about the kind of things that you and I care about".

The Republican brought a tough message on immigration to California during his first visit as U.S. president to the heavily Democratic state that has served as a base of resistance to many of his policies. "Save taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars by reducing crime, drug flow, welfare fraud, and burdens on schools and hospitals", the president said.

California officials have defiantly refused to help federal agents detain and deport immigrants in the US illegally, and the Justice Department sued the state last week over three of its immigration laws.

Trump's visit comes after Attorney General Jeff Sessions last week sued California over three of its so-called sanctuary laws.

He'll also address United States military personnel stationed near the border and attend the fundraiser in Los Angeles. "They don't tell you that". Protests were also held on the Mexican side, in Tijuana.

San Diego's City Council previous year passed a resolution opposing Trump's proposed wall.

As the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want" rolled over the speakers, Trump thanked troops and made his way back to Air Force One for a Los Angeles fundraiser.

Ahead of his arrival, the president tweeted that "thousands of unsafe, violent criminal aliens are released" as a result of California's immigration sanctuary policies. "This is a political stunt", Brown said. He'll tour prototypes of a border wall, hoping to project momentum on a project he promised during his campaign but hasn't yet brought to fruition. And he said the wall has to be made very hard to scale because undocumented immigrants are like "professional mountain climbers".

Trump is expected to spend the night in the Los Angeles area before heading to the St. Louis area on Wednesday.
