President Donald Trump who has failed to convince Mexico to pay for the border wall as he had made an election promise, now he is blaming Democrats for his own failure.

Today, Trump threatened to scuttle the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme, which he was exploiting to get Democrats’ approval for the “big, beautiful wall” as he used to describe during his election campaigns.

“DACA is dead because the Democrats didn’t care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon. No longer works. Must build wall and secure our borders with proper Border Legislation. Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime! ,” Trump ended his tweet with the usual exclamation mark.

He added that Congress must immediately pass Border Legislation, use Nuclear Option if necessary, to stop the massive inflow of drugs and people. “Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are great, but the weak Dem laws don’t allow them to do their job. Act now Congress, our country is being stolen! ” Trump said.

Trump also said that Mexico has the absolute power not to let these large “Caravans” of people enter their country. “They must stop them at their Northern Border, which they can do because their border laws work, not allow them to pass through into our country, which has no effective border laws,” Trump suggested.

Earlier he had said that Mexico is doing very little, to stop people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S.

“They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL! ” Trump said.

Trump added that Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release.

“Getting more dangerous. ‘Caravans’ coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!” Trump stated.
