President Trump is threatening to send the military to close the southern border. In a series of tweets this morning, the President said the Democratic Party is leading an assault on the nation through what he says is their support of open borders.
He pointed to a caravan of migrants trying to make their way to the U.S. from Central America, said to number in the thousands. Trump said that some of them are criminals and that their leaders are doing little to stop them.
The President said he's asking Mexico to stop them and that keeping criminals and drugs from getting into the country is more important to him than the recent trade deal signed with Mexico.
He also said it's all the Democrats' fault for weak laws.
