Donald Trump CLOSES border to Mexico to STOP migrant Caravan

Trump calls for 'major Border Security package' to fund wall

Trump calls for 'major Border Security package' to fund wall

A day earlier, the president threatened to temporarily close the entire border between the United States and Mexico amid fears that an approaching Central American migrant caravan could lead to strife along the border area.

A partial government shutdown can be triggered if Trump decides not to sign a border security funding bill which does not include the $5 billion for the border wall.

"The wall is just a part of border security", the president said.

The Friday message of unity comes after Trump used his Thanksgiving Day call to troops deployed overseas to vent about the judges who have blocked his attempts to overhaul USA immigration law.

Trump also visited the Riviera Beach Coast Guard station.

Viewers flocked to Twitter to express their amusement at the presenter's horrified reactions to the trial. They were each presented with a wooden bowl filled with fish eyes and a glass with a sieve over it.

"Two days ago, we closed the border".

In a statement Thursday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo supported the president's warning.

Trump has taken to Twitter to express his strong opinions on immigration and the safety of the U.S. and the immediate threat immigration and the migrant caravan poses to the country.

A White House officials said the president approved a memo from Chief of Staff John Kelly instructing the Department of Defense to allow "use of force, including lethal force where necessary" even though it's illegal for the military to act as law enforcement.

"If they have to they are going to use lethal force - I've given the okay, yeah", the president said. "I hope they don't have to". "So I'm not going to let the military be taken advantage of, I have no choice, do I want that to happen, absolutely not, but you are dealing with rough people".
