President Donald Trump on Friday threatened to close America's southern border or large sections of it next week, a potentially drastic step affecting the economies of both the US and Mexico, if Mexico does not halt illegal immigration "immediately."
"It could mean all trade" with Mexico. "If Mexico doesn't immediately stop ALL illegal immigration coming into the United States through our Southern Border, I will be CLOSING the Border, or large sections of the Border, next week," Trump said in a tweet.
