President Donald Trump is expected to announce plans for a Mexican border wall on Wednesday, a key campaign promise on the sixth day of his presidency.
The president himself tweeted out the news:
“On day one, we will begin working on an impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful, southern border wall,” the former reality TV star and real estate giant had said.
And here in the first week of his presidency, Trump is poised to begin delivering on that promise.
A White House official confirmed to CNN that Trump will take executive action directing federal resources towards building a border wall.
The president is expected to issue two orders Wednesday afternoon at the Department of Homeland Security.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer commented Tuesday on Tump’s plans.
“Today’s announcement is just the beginning of what’s set to be a multi-day roll out of immigration actions by the president,” Spicer said.
