President Trump threatened again on Thursday to close the southern border, accusing Mexico of not helping to stop the flow of illegal immigrants.
Trump’s new threat came in a series of early morning tweets.
The President accused Mexico of being “all talk and no action” on immigration and ended by saying, “May close the Southern Border!”
Nearly $2 billion in trade flows across the Mexican border daily, as well as hundreds of thousands of workers.
Mexico is doing NOTHING to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants to our Country. They are all talk and no action. Likewise, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years, and do Nothing. The Dems don’t care, such BAD laws. May close the Southern Border!
