Watch live: Trump speaks to members of US military

President Trump is scheduled to speak to U.S. Marines and other members of the military at the Miramar Marine Corps air station in San Diego at 5 p.m.

His remarks are scheduled to follow a presidential visit to a site near the U.S.-Mexico border to examine prototypes of eight potential segments of a new wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, a contentious part of the administration's immigration priorities. 

The president's first visit to California comes amid tensions between state officials and the U.S. Justice Department regarding "sanctuary city" policies.
