Police and protesters alike were preparing early Tuesday for President Donald Trump's first visit to the Los Angeles area since he took office, and afternoon commuters could be in for a rough drive depending on the presidential travels.
Trump went on to tout his long-promised border wall, hours after he toured prototypes in Otay Mesa.
TRUMP: "By the way, the state of California is begging us to build walls in certain areas".
He further slammed the Democrat for immigration and tax policy adding that while he thought Brown was a "nice guy" but "has not done the job".
"If you don't have a wall system, you're not going to have a country", he said, though we seem to have been doing all right for 242 years. "They don't care about the kind of things that you and I care about".
The visit is Trump's first as president to California, a state with which his administration has clashed on issues of border security and immigration.
Construction of the eight wall prototypes in the San Diego area were completed in October of a year ago.
The president called on Congress to include at least $12 billion for the wall in its upcoming budget and urged lawmakers to deny federal money to sanctuary jurisdictions like California that have become "the best friend of the criminal".
But the mere fact that Trump is asking American taxpayers to pay for any part of the wall represents a violation of one of his signature campaign promises, which was that Mexico would pay for it.

"These policies release risky criminal offenders to prey on innocent people, and nullify the federal law", the president said.
At the protest, passersby such as José Gonzalez, 21, stopped to snap a photo of people holding signs, including one that read: "Wall off Putin!" His visit is only expected to last one night.
