President Donald Trump took the first trip to the wall between the U.S. and Mexico on Tuesday, June 23. It is expected that Trump’s border wall will once again form an essential part of his campaign for the upcoming presidential elections in November 2020.

During his visit to the southernmost border, Trump tried to credit his decision to build the wall by stopping the spread of coronavirus as well as the movement of undocumented migrants.

"It stopped COVID, it stopped everything," he said.

Although Arizona is emerging as a coronavirus hotspot, Trump still decided to visit to focus the attention on how the border wall with Mexico has helped secure the region.

During his visit, Trump met with Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey and federal Border Patrol officials. In extreme hit, the officials did make a stop to inspect a new area of the concrete and even put their signature up on the wall.

Trump’s Tuesday visit also marked a celebration for the completion of 200 miles of the new wall system. However, the administration is planning to complete the 400 miles wall by the end of 2020.

The wall construction is being overseen by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. As a part of the project, three miles of the wall has been built in an area where no wall previously existed. The rest have been built in an area that had old barriers with outdated designs.

"My administration has done more than any administration in the history to secure our southern border. Our border has never been more secure,” Trump said during his visit.

After the meeting with the officials, Trump posed for pictures, surveyed the new section of the wall and signed the metal plaque on the wall.
