It’s 20 days from the 2018 midterm elections and I guess a shrill headline about immigrants and sending the Army to the border is what Trump and Republicans feel will juice up their base?
Oh, and he’s gone over the top mentioning cutting foreign aid to 3 Central American countries and holding Mexico ‘s NAFTA agreement….
President Trump on Thursday warned that he may take military action to stop immigrants from crossing the southern border into the U.S. if Mexico does not take action to stop the “onslaught.”
Trump in a series of early-morning tweets also blamed Democrats for the “assault on our country,” adding that illegal immigration is “far more important” to him than trade or the new USMCA trade pact with Mexico and Canada.
And he railed against Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, saying they “have almost no control over their population.”
“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..,” he said in an initial tweet.
“In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!” he said in a follow-up post.
“The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA,” he added. “Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”…..
America National Guard troops sent to the border cannot use arms to stop anything….
The last time Trump and Obama did this the troops went to fix roads….
The NAFTA deal renamed USMCA has to be ratified by a Congress that Democrats will probably have control of the House…
Studies have shown that the criminal complaining that Trump mentions all the time is incorrect in his numbers…
Trump is actually talking about over 4,000 men, women and children who aren’t gonna assault anybody….
This is ALL politics looking for media headlines for anti-immigrant votes in elections in 20 days….
Trump hasn’t mentioned the part about Mexico putting the arriving Central Americans to work….
