During his first presidential visit to the state on Tuesday, Trump is expected to visit prototypes of the wall he is seeking to build along the border with Mexico, a plan that top California officials overwhelmingly oppose, before attending a fundraiser in Beverly Hills. "And that's more than just a figure of speech", Brown said in a letter sent to Trump, who is scheduled to arrive Tuesday on his first visit to California as president.

Joining the activists at the park were San Diego city councilwoman Georgette Gomez and Democrat U.S. Rep. Juan Vargas, whose district covers the entire California-Mexico border.

At a rally for a Republican congressional candidate in Pennsylvania, Trump told the crowd about the recent phone call with Peña Nieto after the audience began shouting Trump's campaign slogan, 'Build that wall'.

Original Post at 9:17 am: Sacramento, CA - Ahead of President Donald Trump's first visit to California since his election, Governor Jerry Brown is inviting him to visit communities like Madera and Fresno. The governor says California is focusing on bridges, not walls, and adds that the project has put 1,700 people to work.

On Monday, Brown wrote a letter talking about previous presidents who have visited the Golden State.

"After you've examined your wall prototypes on the border, I invite you to head north to the Central Valley - the heart of California". The administration has had a contentious relationship with California lawmakers and sued the state just last week over three laws it says makes federal immigration enforcement more hard.

"You have lamented that "we don't have one fast train" in our country".

"Under this premise, we will continue working constructively on the bilateral relationship with the United States".

According to Trump, Peña Nieto said: "Mr. President, I would like you to make a statement that Mexico will not pay for the wall", to which Trump replied: "Are you insane?" California has otherwise clashed viciously with the federal government, particularly on immigration issues.
