The president focused his speech in Yuma on immigration and border security, as well as continued attacks against Democratic rival Joe Biden.

PHOENIX — President Donald Trump came back to Arizona on Tuesday for another visit ahead of the November general election. 

Trump delivered remarks in Yuma to a crowd of hundreds of supporters.

The remarks were given outdoors at the Joe Foss Hangar at the Yuma International Airport.

The topic of the remarks will be "Joe Biden’s failures on immigration and border security," according to the campaign. 

Trump touted $1.7 billion worth of border security upgrades at the state border with Mexico.

He says he expects to win the battleground state in November.

Vice President Mike Pence was in Arizona earlier this month. He went to Tucson to accept an endorsement from the Arizona Association of Police before participating in a Latter-day Saints for Trump Coalition rollout in Mesa.
