Former President Trump’s visit will be on Wednesday, as he tours the border wall with Gov. Abbott.
The last time the former president was here was in January, right before he left office. Now, things are very different along the border. Border wall construction has stopped under President Biden. Gov. Abbott is trying to pick up where former President Trump left off.
The governor has already declared a disaster in several Texas border counties and he’s laying the groundwork for Texas to finish building its own border wall
