President Donald Trump.
(CNSNews.com) -- In response to the political impasse and partial government shutdown over funding for a border wall, President Donald Trump tweeted on Friday that he may shut down the entire southern border with Mexico if the Democrats do not agree to allocate funds for the wall's construction and help the administration to fix the illegal immigration problem.

"We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with," tweeted Trump on Dec. 28.
"Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!" he added.
