Trump: ‘I’m Totally Willing to Close the Border’

‘I want to also thank Mexico, because Mexico — I’m totally willing to close the border, but Mexico the last four days have done more than they have ever done’

TRUMP: "I want to also thank Mexico, because Mexico — and I’m totally willing to close the border, but Mexico the last four days have done more than they have ever done. We were talking about that before. They’re apprehending people now by the thousands and bringing them back to their countries, bringing them back to where they came from. I think you see that. That's at their southern border, and that's a big difference. That will help us pretty much 90 percent, 80 percent. What do you think, fellows? Pretty close, right? But that’s a big difference. They have never done that before. When I say never done it, I mean in like 30 years they have never done it like they’re doing it right now. So, the crisis is the direct result of the obstruction by Democrats in Congress and we have to do something about it, and we're going to — I think a lot of the Democrats feel that way, too. I think they feel it."
