Trump has been increasingly exasperated at his inability to halt the swelling number of migrants entering the US, including thousands who have being released after arriving because border officials have no space for them.
The President stopped in Calexico, California, on Friday afternoon to tour replacement border fencing and participate in a border security roundtable.
Trump's claims that the United States was "full" prompted immediate pushback from his critics.
It was the latest, seemingly sudden attempt at new leverage by a president struggling to solve what his administration has called a border "crisis."

Though Mr Trump, who has pulled a series of about-faces in recent days, walked away from this threat to close the border, he still intends to highlight conditions at the boundary with Mexico.
Trump had already appeared to be easing off his border threat earlier this week.
On Thursday, he told reporters at the White House he wants to see Mexico stop more migrants at its southern border. "The big flow will stop", Trump Tweeted.
Trump also said he could still order the border closed later.

Those families, along with unaccompanied children, are subject to specific laws and court settlements that prevent them from being immediately sent back to their home countries. Congress had voted to block the emergency declaration but Trump vetoed the measure.
