California Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday invited President Donald Trump to visit the state’s high-speed rail construction projects while he is in the state this week to examine prototypes of the wall he wants to build along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“You see, in California we are focusing on bridges, not walls. And that’s more than just a figure of speech,” Brown said in a letter sent to Trump, who is scheduled to arrive Tuesday on his first visit to California as president.
