Trump visits Marines, DHS agents in Arizona

YUMA, Arizona (AP) - President Donald Trump greeted service members at a Marine Corps base in the 106-degree heat of Yuma, Arizona, on Tuesday.

Trump also signed caps with his "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan and posed for selfies on the tarmac just steps away from Air Force One.

Trump visited with service members after touring the base, a hub of operations for the U.S. Border Patrol. Trump reviewed equipment used by the Border Patrol. Agents told Trump about a Predator drone, helicopter and boat, which are on display in a hangar at the base. Trump patted the side of the drone.

Trump also greeted dozens of Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. He shook hands as they showed him everyday items, such as a fire extinguisher, that have been refashioned to smuggle drugs across the border.

The president made no formal remarks while in Yuma.
