President Donald Trump is expected to visit San Diego to view the prototypes of his proposed border wall after his State of the Union speech on Jan. 30, Axios is reporting.

The trip had originally been planned for this week, but postponed after the president decided to attend the college football championship game on Monday, Axios said.

The website reported Trump is committed to having the wall built along the Mexican border.

"The wall is bigger than a policy proposal — it's a symbol," a source close to the president told Axios.

"Ending chain migration may be more impactful policy, but he understands the power of the wall as a concept and in terms of the way he and his presidency will be perceived and judged."

Testing has been underway on the eight prototypes to see how they will stand up to scaling and breach attempts, according to ABC News. Six companies were picked to build the prototypes.
