Chris Mills RodrigoPresident TrumpDonald John TrumpWatergate reporter pens op-ed on ‘inevitability’ of Trump’s impeachment Jemele Hill says calling Trump a white supremacist is like ‘saying water is wet’ Former MSNBC host says midterms marked turning point for Democrats MORE on Friday threatened to “close the Southern Border entirely” if Democrats do not agree to provide money to “finish” building a wall on the Mexican border.
Trump made the threat in a series of tweets on the seventh day of a partial government shutdown that entered its seventh day on Friday with no end in sight.
The shutdown began on Saturday after Democrats rejected demands from Trump that $5 billion be included for the wall in a measure to keep the government open.
“We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with,” the president tweeted.
He also criticized past presidents and Congresses over the nation’s current immigration laws.
“Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!“
