Trump says border wall 'looks fantastic'

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump visited the border wall at Calexico, California, on Friday, saying it 'looks fantastic'.

Gloria Chavez, Border Patrol chief of the El Centro sector, said the number of assaults against border agents have dropped 65 percent and the number of illegal entries have dropped 75 percent.

Trump on Friday promised approximately 450 miles (725 km) of new "wall" along the southern U.S. border, after threatening to slap Mexico with an unspecified economic penalty to crack down on what he describes as a crisis of undocumented immigration and drug trafficking.

The Republican president's latest pronouncements, including a threat to impose auto tariffs on Mexico, are in response to a rising number of migrants, many of them families with children, traveling northward from Central America through Mexico and to the U.S. border.
