A day before going to the U.S.
President Trump: "Mexico understands that we're going to close the border or I'm going to tariff the cars. One or the other. Probably start off with the tariffs. That'll be a very powerful incentive."

Our region should not have to endure the consequences of another Trump shutdown, this time at the Mexican border. Our economy relies on trade w/ other countries. Shutting down the border would be an mistake that would harm millions of people and kill jobs. https://t.co/vFQZ4gcBrs

His reckless behavior is a true national crisis and Congress needs to stand against his attempts to harm our economy and our nation's values. pic.twitter.com/Zhy3W5L2Yc

Trump has no idea of the economic catastrophe he will cause on border communities and throughout the country with his misguided decision to close the border. Brash actions that do nothing to address the humanitarian situation at the border solve nothing. https://t.co/rL8T6ApJKd
