President Trump Escalates Border Fight

President Trump has vowed to shut down the border if no border wall funding appears. Breitbart reports:

President Donald Trump threatened to close the Southern border on Friday if Democrats continued blocking funding for border security.

“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,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The president commented on the ongoing funding stalemate as the partial government shutdown continued into the seventh day.

Trump added that he was willing to freeze economic activity between the Southern border and even end trade with Mexico.

If the border cannot be secured with a wall, it should be shut down.

Good job Pres. Trump. You hold the dumb ass demorats feet to the fire. They are really stupid but maybe they will wake up and learn after you close down the entire border. Stop funding central american countries, also, as you said. Use that money to fund the wall. Pelosi and Schumer don’t like you. So [email protected]!! Screw them. I’m totally on your side with what you are doing. If the stupid ass demorats don’t want to wake the hell up, screw them. Do your worst. Do not give in. Stand firm. Your base is totally behind you.

Paul Williamson, letting the world know how much of a liberal, leftist, idiot he truly is. See’s Russians trolls everywhere he goes, but wouldn’t recognize an open southern border as an acknowledged weakness in U.S. national security until it was too late. Fully support the Dumbascrap Party’s plan to allow illegal aliens to vote in state and federal elections. Both will not be allowed to happen…

Paul you are just plain wrong here as you never had a van of illegals pull up on a job and try to take your job for way less money. It did not matter their work looks crappy as long as contractors had to pay less. So we had to call I.C.E. out and watch them run away as the contractors got their butts reamed by I.C.E. Wait until they can do your job for less money and you get put on the curb.

Every post I see from you Paul — you are accusing someone of being a Russian troll — my guess is you need to be investigated to see who the real troll is.

Paul Williamson, are you blind and deaf? Is your memory so very short? Just a very few short years ago, both Svchumer and Pelosi were FOR greater border security, but they have done a complete turn-around since Trump was elected instead of their lying Hillary. Because of their stubborn behaviour we now have this stalemate. They love themselves, NOT THIS COUNTRY!–

Paul Williamson Just another leftist liberal hater. It is the crooked democrats who are destroying this country….they still follow obama’s orders. obama’s sole goal was to turn America into another 3rd world failure run by his illegals and his muslim brother and sister terrorists. He is still working in that one goal.
They democrats have no particular love for their illegals, they just depend on their illegal votes to stay in office

Nancy Pelosi, with assistance of Schumer, shut down the government. Donald saw your move, ant TRUMPED YOURS. HE WILL SHUT DOWN THE BORDER, WHICH FALLS UNDER PREISIDENTIAL POWERS. I yelled, because I know both Democrats have tin ears, since Donald let them and all of us know since 2015, that Border Security, Reform of Immigration Laws, Funds to build wall, and more border agents, ICE, and Homeland Defense personnel needed. We have to screen USA (inside the borders) and remove those who will injure or kill our citizens. We do not need criminals, and too many of them are. When bad ones gone, we can consider accepting those who have skills we need.

Americans ( the Legals ): President Trump should go for Full-Funding for the Great American Wall ( $ 30 Billion ) with messico. NOT, the piecemeal $ 5 B.

Thank god we have a president, that wants to work for the people in this country and not favor immigrants, from every where else. It is to bad some of the former presidents, didn’t have the guts to stand up, to the liberal leftist before now. He ranks up there with Reagan and Kennedy as far as I am concerned. It is to bad Congress and the Senate, don’t want to work with him, to restore our great country. I am talking about the liberal, “Democrats an the republicans in name only”.

Trump has the right ideas. No wall then the border needs to be closed. The problem is simple aliens can not set foot on our soil if they do then it is just a question of time before they are let lose to escape into the interior and create more illegals in the population. Illegals have to be discouraged and prevented from entering. Having border Patrol arresting them doesn’t sole the problem it only delays their entry. We need instant deportation or instant long term Jail.

I think all of the strong and healthy Men of The United States should go to the border and volunteer work on the Border Wall. I am also talking about all of these Useless Feeders that are on welfare as well.

Amen! We used to see chain gangs everywhere South of where o live. Why not make the prisoners of our Republic have to do something constructive? All those private citizens who want to volunteer, why not? I say with all the help it would be 100% complete in no time.

I want to see President Trump start a campaign for ‘TERM LIMITS’ on all Senators and Congressmen/women!! Also, put into law a very strict ‘VOTER ID’ that can’t be corrupted by any means at all!! This and the Wall Financing should be done before the 2019 vote for the 2020 election!! Then start putting the slime in prison!! You know who I mean!!! Just watch your back and front!! We need you to be in power for at least another 6 years!! MAGA!!!!

If the president would cut off aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras we would not see the caravans on the road to the US, the politicians in these three countries would lose too much pocket money, they would not allow the caravans to form, close the border using the military to back up the border patrol and when they catch someone cutting the fence, crossing the river or climbing over the wall give the defenders of the border tear gas, high pressure water hose where available and let them turn it loose on these illegals that would invade our country, and if the illegals shoot at the US border and military personnel let them shoot back and don’t miss because those shooters would be criminals and would not hesitate to kill a US citizen if they ever entered the US

I thought the Southern border was already shut down weeks ago. Trump has bent over backwards and tried to work with the Democrats. I blame the shut down of the government solely on them. I hope Trump stands his ground. I’m behind him all the way.
