President Donald Trump’s fury over a border wall continues to flare as he blames Mexico for failing to stop caravans from marching into the U.S.

‘Mexico is doing NOTHING to stop the Caravan which is now fully formed and heading to the United States,’ he tweeted Saturday morning.

‘We stopped the last two – many are still in Mexico but can’t get through our Wall, but it takes a lot of Border Agents if there is no Wall. Not easy!’ he added.

His tweet comes as the partial government Shutdown enters its 29th day and as he prepares to deliver a speech Saturday afternoon rallying yet again for his controversial border wall that Democrats have continuously rejected.

On Saturday morning he briefly spoke to reporters foreshadowing his government Shutdown remarks scheduled for 3pm EST where he’ll fight for his border wall with the hopes that Democrats will meet him halfway.

‘As you know the caravans are coming up, they have a big one coming up now. I’m disappointed that Mexico is not stopping them. I mean, Mexico seems unfortunately powerless to stop them,’ he said.

‘If you had a wall, we wouldn’t have this problem. The walls we fixed and built hold beautifully, but we have a lot of open areas, and it is too bad,’ he added.

Trump claimed that previous caravans were successfully stopped in Mexico and are now in Tujuana.

‘I don’t know what they’re doing there, but they’re not in our country, that I can tell you,’ he said, urging reporters to tune into his speech.

‘I hope that speaker Pelosi can come along and realize what everybody knows, no matter who it is, they know that walls work and we need walls. And whether it is personal or not, it is not personal for me,’ he said, claiming the Speaker of the House is ‘controlled by the radical left’.

‘Everybody knows that walls work. You look at different places, they put up a wall, no problem. You look at San Antonio, you look at so many different places, they go from one of the most unsafe cities in the country to one of the safest cities immediately,’ he added.

‘We have to put them up and we will put them up. We have to. I think we’re making a lot of progress. You know, we’re building the wall as we speak. Nobody covers that, and I understand that, but we’re building wall as we speak,’ he added.

The president echoed his previous statements saying that people coming from Mexico are human traffickers, drug pushers and criminals.

Just this week Border Patrol said what they believe is the largest single group of migrants ever crossed the border through illegal tunnels.

On Monday a massive group of 376 migrants – including 200 minors – squeezed past a 12-foot border fence near Yuma, Arizona by burrowing through tiny holes dug under the old barrier.

The Border Patrol has said that smugglers transport large groups to the border and then instruct them to cross and turn themselves in.

The migrants ‘inundated agents’ as they poured in one after one through the tiny crawl space and surrendered to Border Patrol to request asylum.

Customs and Border Protection said 200 of the group were minors, and that nearly all the rest said they were their parents, meaning that they will likely be released into the U.S. as their asylum claims are processed.
