President Donald Trump’s signature project has been marching forward since the moment he entered the Oval Office.
Trump used the southern border wall as a springboard to the 2016 election, putting our nation’s security first.
Just this week, the project reached another significant milestone. And the President was on hand to officially celebrate that milestone in a unique way.
Trump visited the wall in San Luis, Arizona, where construction has reached 200 miles, and Donald put his own mark on it.

Other officials were on hand as well, including Republican Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who also signed the plaque.
Trump’s campaign promise appears to be holding firm, though construction hasn’t happened as quickly as originally planned.
And despite slower than anticipated building, the current administration hopes to see it completed soon.
Trump reportedly said during a meeting with Ducey and Border Patrol officials:
Our border has never been more secure.
Critics of the wall remain vocal but Donald Trump hasn’t budged on the importance of a better physical barrier.
Border officials have said it’s having an impact, too. Though we’re seeing much less immigration traffic due to the current pandemic, of course.
The question is whether or not Trump’s constituents are happy with construction so far: is it happening quickly enough for them?
Either way, milestones continue to be reached, and construction has never completely stopped. So that’s likely a positive for the President’s supporters.
- Border wall construction just hit a new milestone: 200 miles.
- President Donald Trump commemorated the milestone by signing a plaque affixed to the fence.
- Though development of the wall hasn’t proceeded as quickly as Trump initially promised, construction continues at a steady pace.
