US President Trump Threatens to Close Mexico Border

  • US President Donald Trump has threatened to threatened to close the Mexico border at the southern USA if the US Congress doesn’t approve the US$5 billion for erecting a wall. The Democrats, who will officially take control of the US Congress, on Thursday next week, are going to face an immediate test after Trump increased pressure for money to erect Mexico border wall. Reports say the Democrats have planned to end the on-going partial government shutdown (which started on December 22, 2018) by approving a spending measure quickly. Nancy Pelosi’s spokesperson Drew Hammill said: “Democrats are united against the president’s immoral, ineffective and expensive wall that he specifically promised that Mexico would pay for”.
