SAN ANTONIO – (Update: The briefing is over. Please check back for more livestreams on KSAT.com).
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and former President Donald Trump will pay a visit to the border on Wednesday, roughly two weeks after the governor announced plans to pay for the construction of more border wall with taxpayer money.
The pair of GOP politicians provided a media briefing around noon Wednesday. They are expected to take a tour “of the unfinished border wall” in the afternoon, according to a release from Abbott’s office. You can watch the tour live in the video player at the top of this article as well as on KSAT.com/tv.
The press conference was held at Weslaco Department of Public Safety Headquarters.
Abbott and Trump’s visit comes after a handful of other politicians, including Vice President Kamala Harris, have made trips to the Texas-Mexico border in recent months.
