Trump Threatens To Close Border, Brags Machine Guns ‘Very Effective’ To Stop Immigrants





President Trump on Thursday renewed his threat to close the southern border in a tweet, claiming Mexico is “all talk and no action” in its efforts to stop a flow of migrants into the U.S. and said Democrats “don’t care.”

“Mexico is doing NOTHING to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants to our Country. They are all talk and no action. Likewise, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years, and do Nothing,” he added. “The Dems don’t care, such BAD laws. May close the Southern Border!”




Trump’s tweet came less than 24 hours after he told Fox News host Sean Hannity that his border wall is a humane alternative to machine gun-toting guards.

“You go to a lot of the generals, they will tell you, this is a national emergency,” Trump claimed.

Trump argued that the wall is necessary to prevent illegal immigrants from “pouring in” and brought up the machine guns he’s seen other countries use at their borders to stop illegal entries.

“But, you know, we don’t do like other countries! Other countries stand there with machine guns ready to fire,” he said. “We can’t do that and I wouldn’t want to do that, okay? It’s a very effective way of doing it and I wouldn’t want to do it. We can’t do it.” That’s why, he insisted, building more walls is essential.
