Trump Threatens to Close Southern Border if Democrats Fail to Fund Security

Trump added that he was willing to freeze economic activity between the Southern border and even end trade with Mexico.“Go back to pre-NAFTA, before so many of our companies and jobs were so foolishly sent to Mexico,” he wrote. “Either we build (finish) the Wall or we close the Border.”The shutdown is expected to continue into January after Congressional Democrats refused to fund border security in the new government funding bill.Trump accused Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador of “doing nothing” to help keep their people from traveling to America despite receiving millions of dollars in aid from the United States.
