House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was aboard Air Force One with President Donald Trump Friday as they headed to the southern border before heading to Los Angeles for a fundraiser dinner.
Trump traveled to Calexico in Southern California to meet with local law enforcement officials and tour a section of recently rebuilt fencing he cites as the answer to a surge of migrant families coming to the U.S. in recent months, according to The Associated Press.
The Bakersfield representative posted a photo of himself, the president and Reps. Chuck Fleischmann and Doug LaMalfa on Air Force One. "Getting an update from @POTUS aboard Air Force 1 about the crisis on our Southern border," McCarthy wrote on Twitter.
After the border visit, Trump was slated to travel to Los Angeles to hold a pair of fundraisers, according to The Associated Press. Tickets for a reception start at $15,000. The chance to take a photo with the president will cost supporters $50,000, and premium tickets cost $150,000.
