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.
