Donald Trump:“The wall will save hundreds of billions of dollars – many many times what it’s going to cost!”

Visiting California for the first time since assuming the presidency, President Donald Trump has called his wish for a border wall with Mexico a national necessity, as he accused the state of putting the “entire nation at risk” by not dealing with illegal immigration.

“If you don’t have a wall system, we’re not going to have a country”, Mr Trump said.

The President was touring eight wall prototypes, erected near the border in the San Diego area, that stand as the chief concrete progress towards one of his central campaign promises. Congress has so far not allocated the billions of dollars needed to build the larger structure, with the Trump administration seeking $18bn (£12.9bn) for the first phase.

Donald Trump’s big tax plan

Donald Trump will propose big tax breaks for working families and businesses in a speech on the economy Monday in Detroit.

The plan — timed as an attempt to fix a string of unforced errors over the past week — will include a temporary moratorium on new federal regulations and reviving the Keystone pipeline project that was killed by President Obama.

Trump will also say he wants to simplify taxes and “remove bureaucrats who only know how to kill jobs; replace them with experts who know how to create jobs,” according to Reuters.
