    President Trump claimed San Antonio's border wall helped lower the city's crime rate.

    "You look at different places, they put up a wall, no problem," Trump said. "You look at San Antonio, you look at so many different places, they go from one of the most unsafe cities in the country to one of the safest, immediately. Immediately. It works. We have to put them up, and we will put them up. We've got to."

    San Antonio is located about 150 miles north of the border.
