Trump Trolls Liberal Media by Signing Border Wall with a Sharpie
President visits a new section of the border near San Diego
President Donald Trump made his trip to the U.S.-Mexico border more historic by signing a new section of the wall with his infamous permanent marker.
The president visited a section of the border near San Diego in order to promote the continuing construction of the wall.
Trump called the wall the “Rolls-Royce version," insisting that once finished, it would be nearly impossible to pass illegally.
The president was then asked to sign a section of the wall.

After Trump signed the wall, several other officials reportedly followed suit.
One of the workers explained to the president in a C-Span video that it is a tradition for anyone who works on the wall to sign it.
Once he added his signature, Trump waved the others forward.
“Let’s all get our signatures in there,” he said.
Trump's three-day western trip included a New Mexico rally, and the Beverly Hills fundraiser that drew criticism from “Will & Grace” stars Debra Messing and Eric McCormack.

Last month, United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) unveiled a new 60-mile stretch of completed wall along the southern border.
Constructed using an 18-foot steel bollard barrier, the new section of the wall is near San Luis, Arizona.
The new triple-layered enforcement zone is far more effective at deterring illegal entry than the former single 10-foot barrier, CBP revealed.
The agency says it's aiming to complete at least 450 miles of the new border wall by the end of 2020 and has projects underway in Texas, California, Arizona, and New Mexico.
