President Trump is expected to land at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in California tomorrow afternoon to pay a visit to the border wall prototypes competing for the opportunity to stand on the U.S.-Mexico border.

He will inspect the eight border wall prototypes that have been built, but don’t expect him to announce a winner on the spot.

The Department of Homeland Security agency tasked with overseeing the construction project says there is a chance that the former reality TV star could announce the winner in a more dramatic style.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, the $18 billion wall will pay for itself by curbing the importation of crime, drugs and illegal immigrants who tend to go on the federal dole.

Last week, the justice department sued California over so-called “Sanctuary City” policies that try to protect undocumented migrants from deportation.

During a visit to Sacramento, Attorney General Jeff Sessions accused Democratic officials of obstructing federal immigration enforcement efforts.

After inspecting the border wall prototypes, Trump will then head to a Republican fundraiser in Beverly Hills.

The cheapest ticket goes for $35-thousand with “Politico” reporting ticket prices are running up to $250-thousandand.

The Trump administration has a tense relationship with the Golden State.

In fact, Democratic Governor Jerry Brown has accused Trump of declaring war on his state.
