- President Donald Trump will travel to Texas on Tuesday for one final trip across its southern border wall
- His visit comes as the Democrats are due to vote on impeachment on Wednesday after riots broke out in the Capitol a week earlier
- 400 miles of border walls were erected during Trump's presidency
- A full-length wall along the U.S.-Mexico border was one of Trump's biggest promises for his 2016 campaign
Donald Trump will make one final trip as president to his famous southern border wall on Tuesday, as all sides continue to urge him to resign after his supporters have sieged the Capitol.
The President will travel to Alamo, Texas to celebrate the completion of the 400 mile border wall that was erected during his tenure. He promised his followers to make the immigration system stricter.
The visit is expected to be Trump's first public appearance since speaking to a crowd near the White House on Wednesday when thousands of his supporters came to Washington DC for a rally to protest and disturb Congress who certified the election for Joe Biden on the same day.
Trump has been accused of upset the crowd who, following his statements, marched on Capitol Hill, broke through the Capitol building and caused destruction and chaos in the halls, offices and chambers.

One of the president's remaining allies, senior campaign advisor Jason Miller, praised Trump's upcoming visit on Twitter
The protesters were able to delay the action of Congress for about six hours and five were left dead – including a pro-Trump protester who was shot in the chest and a Capitol police officer.
Many of the president's closest allies have left him during this period, including some resigned administrative officials such as incumbent Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, who is married to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Jason Miller, an adviser to the Trump campaign and one of the president's remaining allies, praised Trump's upcoming visit to the southern border wall.
"Trump is visiting the US-Mexico border to praise the border wall," he tweeted on Sunday along with a thumbs up emoji and a link to an article about the trip.
Trump's 2016 presidential campaign focused largely on his desire to build a border wall.
He also promised Mexico would pay for the wall, but for the US it was mostly out of pocket.
While most of the wall was built in areas where minor barriers were already in place, in a short space of time the government put millions into building hundreds of kilometers of fences up to 30 feet high.
Most of the wall was completed this year as the president accelerated his construction schedule in the wake of the upcoming elections.
The administration prioritized areas where the wall could be built faster.
While Trump travels to Texas, the Democrats in the House of Representatives will vote on impeachment on Wednesday.

Trump assumed the major blame for last week's unprecedented attack on the Capitol. Democrats and Republicans called on his words to encourage violence.
The president posted a video on Wednesday urging supporters to go home as the situation on Capitol Hill escalated. The video was removed from Twitter and Trump was banned from the platform for 12 hours, given that time to delete the content.
After the ban, he returned to Twitter and posted complaints that the election was unfair, beat up Democrats and Biden, and eventually revealed that he would not be attending the inauguration on January 20.
Last week he posted a video on Twitter condemning the violence in the Capitol.
Twitter has banned Trump from his platform indefinitely, and Facebook has done the same – claiming the president would be banned from his account until at least after his inauguration.
