No wall? Then 'southern border' to be closed


Trump wants everyone to forget that before the government shutdown, Congress looked to pass a stopgap bill that would've kept the government up and running and given him a portion of the funding for his dumb-ass wall that no one wants.

Trejo was not shy about expressing his feelings towards Trump's plan after he was asked his thoughts on the President's demand for border wall funding and the government shutdown.

The latter half of this missive makes little sense as a public argument for Trump's position.

But the rancour has spiralled under Trump's abrasive administration and is set to go even higher after January 3 when the Democrats take over the House of Representatives, following their midterm election victory.

The U.S runs a trade deficit with Mexico, but outside observers have said that closing the border could cause economic chaos given the amount of trade and people who legally cross the border every day.

Trump appears to have been influenced by uber-conservative members of the media when he backtracked on his support for a government funding deal last week and propelled the federal government into shutdown mode just days before Christmas.

And ended his symphony of stupidity by accusing "Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador" of taking money from the USA and threatening to cut off aid to the countries.

"Word is that a new Caravan is forming in Honduras and they are doing nothing about it", he wrote.

Despite Trump's threat, the United States this month announced a new collaboration with Mexico on a program to curb migration from Central American countries, with much of the $10.6 billion USA contribution to be drawn from existing aid programs.

He has also repeatedly threatened to cut off USA aid to countries he deems insufficient partners in combating illegal immigration, but has thus far failed to follow through with those threats.

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters today that the White House has backed down from its $5 billion demand for a border wall, offering a lower number to Democrats last weekend.

Pelosi has struggled to get the votes she needs to become speaker.

Pelosi's spokesman, Drew Hammill, said in a statement Friday that Democrats "are united against the President's immoral, ineffective and expensive wall - the wall that he specifically promised that Mexico would pay for".

Mulvaney said Friday that "some folks use the term "wall" and they mean different things".

On Thursday, the president posted a tweet that seemed to agree with one sent by his predecessor, Barack Obama, almost eight years ago. That's what he wants to build.
