WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday Mexico was “doing virtually nothing to stop illegal immigrants from coming to our southern border” and that he would soon give a response.
“Mexico’s attitude is that people from other countries, including Mexico, should have the right to flow into the U.S. & that U.S. taxpayers should be responsible for the tremendous costs associated w/this illegal migration. Mexico is wrong and I will soon be giving a response!” Trump said on Twitter. He did not elaborate.
