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.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson on Monday said he does not always agree with President Trump.
“I’m a member of this administration and I don’t agree with the president about everything that he says or of how it is said,” Carson said while speaking at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Ga., receiving applause for his remark.
“If the way you say things is so inflammatory that people can’t hear your message, it is not helpful. And that is why I don’t do that anymore,” he added at a service honoring the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
President Donald Trump:”I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great great wall on our southern border and I’ll have Mexico pay for that wall.”
Construction of eight border wall prototypes is under way as the Department of Homeland Security seeks to advance President Donald Trump’s landmark promise.
The construction includes four concrete wall prototypes and four prototypes using “other materials.” Construction began Sept. 26 in San Diego, Calif., close to the U.S.-Mexico border. The prototypes are expected to be finished near the end of October.
Donald Trump in Mexico:”I’m proud to say how many Mexican people I employ and they are amazing people!”
"THANK YOU MEXICO!, Thank you to President Enrique Pena Nieto – for the invitation to meet with him in Mexico City, Mexico. Wonderful leadership and high quality people! I look forward to our next meetin! Hillary Clinton didn't go to Mexico!"-Donald Trump
Trump the Statesman Gets It Done in Mexico
High-risk meeting with President Peña Nieto a win for GOP nominee!
Hillary Clinton has accused Donald Trump of lacking the temperament to conduct foreign policy — but Trump blew that narrative to pieces at a game-changing joint press conference with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto Wednesday.Trump proved capable of having a respectful, productive meeting and substantive, statesmanlike press conference with a foreign leader who once implied he was like a fascist dictator. Meanwhile Clinton — who continues to imply that Trump is something akin to a fascist dictator — is on day 270 without any press conference at all.
Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, turns 70 Tuesday. If elected, he'd be the oldest person ever elected to a first term as president.
If the billionaire businessman succeeds in his bid, he would eclipse Ronald Reagan in becoming the oldest human to assume the U.S. presidency. Hillary Clinton, now 68, would be sworn in as a close second.
While his 2016 presidential campaign was his first bid for public office, Trump is hardly new to the public eye. A look back at 70 quotes from interviews, books and tweets that epitomize the man, the brand, the provocateur and the potential president that is Donald J. Trump.

Donald Trump: Some readers may be wondering why the picture we used on the cover of this book is so angry and so mean looking. I had some beautiful pictures taken in which I had a big smile on my face. I looked happy, I looked content, I looked like a very nice person, which in theory I am. My family loved those pictures and wanted me to use one of them. The photographer did a great job. But I decided it wasn’t appropriate. In this book we’re talking about Crippled America—that’s a tough title. Unfortunately, there’s very little that’s nice about it. Hence, the picture on the cover.
