posts on Twitter accusing Trump the Democrats to stonewall and aimed a direct threat to close the border with the neighboring country in the south if they do not give and let through the equivalent of just over sek 50 billion that Trump requires.
Vice-president Mike Pence has submitted a compromise proposal in approximately one half of the sum but so far the Democrats have said flatly no to any money for a wall.
Trump also writes that the united states lost 660 billion to Mexico annually on the previous trade agreement, Nafta, and therefore he sees a closing of the border as a pure profit. This despite the fact that Naftaavtalet is about to be replaced by a new agreement, which has been praised by Trump.
”Either we build (make ready) the wall or we will close the border,” writes Trump.
