President Trump’s time in the White House is reaching a close. Following the breach into Capitol Hill last Wednesday, Trump dropped all then-pending legal challenges of the 2020 presidential election. His attorneys, from Lin Wood to Rudy Guiliani and others, never delivered the results they promised to the president’s supporters.
In nine days, Joe Biden will become the 46th U.S. president. As Trump’s term concludes, Democrats in the House of Representatives are already working to impeach him; a conviction in impeachment would bar Trump from seeking office again, this being an outcome that Democrats would absolutely love.
Many Americans are eager to learn how the 45th president will spend his final nine days in office. According to Breitbart News, Trump will travel to South Texas later this week to observe the Southern border wall.
Trump’s Visit to South Texas: What to Know
Tomorrow, President Trump is traveling to Alamo, Texas. Judd Deere, the deputy press secretary of the White House, made the announcement; Deere also confirmed that while in Alamo, the 45th president shall acknowledge the finished 400 miles of wall that currently stands at the U.S. Southern border.

Immigration reform is a huge part of what President Trump ran on. He promised to reform the shattered immigration system in America and protect the jobs of U.S. workers. In traveling to South Texas tomorrow, the president also seeks to highlight his kept promise of the border wall.
According to The Dallas News, 452 miles of border wall presently stands. Most parts of the current wall serve as replacements or reinforcements for weaker barriers that existed before. Only 12 miles of the current wall covers parts of the border that previously lacked any barriers.
The Future of the Southern Border Wall
With the incoming Biden administration, the future of the Southern border wall remains highly in question.
On the presidential campaign trail, Joe Biden vowed that “not another foot of wall” will be built, should he win election. The former vice president also promised that “border protection” would exist under his administration, yet claimed that “high-tech capacity” would be the focal point.
Huge news for Texas and other border states today. Congrats to @POTUS for successfully constructing 450 miles of border wall. Border security is a major concern for my constituents. We now have a stronger, more secure border. Promises kept! https://t.co/ZqzALX4hEI

Biden also cited “ports of entry” as the areas that should be most carefully watched. According to the Democrat, ports of entry are the places where “bad stuff” lies.
