Trump threatens to close border with Mexico next week

President Donald Trump on Friday threatened to close the nation’s Mexican border or large sections of it next week, a potentially drastic step affecting both nations’ economies, if Mexico does not halt illegal immigration at once.

“It could mean all trade” with Mexico,” Trump said when questioned by reporters in Florida. “We will close it for a long time. I am not kidding around.”

Trump has previously threatened to close the border – including at a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Thursday night – but this time was different as he gave a timetable. The White House did not immediately respond to questions about whether his possible action would apply to commercial and air travel, but a substantial closure could have an especially heavy impact on cross-border communities and both nations.

    Everything President Trump is doing and has done since taking office is to make America better. To fix problems created by past administrations both republican and democrat. It is a part of his MAGA movement and it is working for America. The so called democrats take offense to the word even and now consider wearing the hat an insult to them. However, America has not been this strong economially for decades. Possibly since President Ronald Reagan. Most Americans know that regardless of political party. Being a democrat or Rino does not blind someone or make them to ignorant to see reality they just chose to ignore the facts because of their specific goal of socialism or communism. Some look at what President Trump is doing and has done as something good for America and others mostly socialist democrats and Rino’s as something preventing their idea of socialist/communist government from becoming a reality. Americans can be happy for that! None of the socialist based governments systems has ever worked and never will work. It has been tried hundreds of times always to the same result.

    No doubt about it President Trump is the best thing that has happened to the United States of America in decades. Especially after having a president for eight years with a goal of fundamental transformation. I have not heard even one democrat explain what was meant by that have you? Without an explanation from them I think it means doing away with our Constitutional Representative Republic and free enterprise economic system and installing a communist nation with a touch of Islam.

    Jimmy Carter also was a terrible president however, he never meant to destroy America as did Obama. Jimmy Carter loved America he just did not know how to run it to make it better. However, because of Carter we got Reagan and because of Obama we now have Trump.
    Obama was out to destroy America from day one. Certain Americans were to stupidly blinked to see what he was up to. Now president Trump has to bring everything including the military back up to speed to insure America remains a sovereign free nation. Something all Americans should desire if not cherish.
