The US President Donald trump said Friday that it may close the border with Mexico for trade supply from that country, reports Reuters. Separately, he threatened that the US can close the border with Mexico in the long term.
Earlier on Friday, reminds TASS, trump wrote on his Twitter page that next week he will close the border with Mexico, if Mexico will not end the flow of illegal migration to the United States. He, however, did not specify whether referring to the closure of the border for movement of people or trade.
“If Mexico did not immediately stop all illegal immigration, traveling to the United States through our southern border, I’m going to close the border or significant parts of the border next week,” wrote trump.
According to him, Mexico can easily fulfill these conditions, however, it, the President said, “only takes American money and talking”.
“Besides, we’re losing them so much money, especially when you consider the drug trade, etc., so to close the border would be good!” – glad my thoughts trump.
The White house has once again accused the opposition of Democrats in approving the “weakest immigration laws in the world.” “Mexico needs to stop infiltration of illegal immigrants into the U.S. across our country, and our southern border. Mexico for many years rich in the United States, much overstating the costs of providing border security”, – concluded the American leader.
Last year, Donald trump has repeatedly stated its intention to close the us-Mexican border in connection with the migration crisis. So, the President ordered to bring several thousand troops to the operation in the Faithful Patriot (“True Patriot”) on combating illegal migration in border areas.
According to press reports, the Minister of internal security of the USA Kirsten Nielsen then said that he would not execute the decree on closing the border, as it is not feasible. However, she has publicly stressed that the situation on the southern border of the United States is really a crisis and is a threat to national security.
15 Feb trump signed a Declaration on introduction of state of emergency on the border with Mexico. According to the acting head of the White house, Mika Malvani, it will allow Trump to a total of about $ 8 billion for the construction or repair of fencing on the border with Mexico stretching 376,5 km.
However, so far the us President has never been set for Mexico city the timing of the fulfillment of the terms of the fight against illegal migration, as he did on March 29.
