President Trump threatened to close the southern border, again, on Thursday, as he has claimed he could several times this year without taking action.

He said in an early-morning tweet: ‘Mexico is doing NOTHING to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants to our Country. They are all talk and no action. Likewise, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years, and do Nothing. The Dems don’t care, such BAD laws. May close the Southern Border!

It was not immediately clear what prompted his latest warning to Mexico and Central American countries that must take drastic action to curb migration to the U.S. or else he will shut down legal ports of entry.

But he said the evening before, in a phone interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, that his border wall is a humane alternative to machine gun-toting guards.

‘We can’t do that and I wouldn’t want to do that, OK?’ he said. ‘It’s a very effective way of doing it, and I wouldn’t want to do it. We can’t do it.’

Trump seemed to have the border crisis on his mind on Thursday, after it came up in a long call with Hannity the evening before that aired on Fox.

Hannity asked him ‘what is the status, the progress, how many much more miles [of wall] need to be built, how many have you repaired’ prompting Trump to reveal that his wall is actually ‘barbed wire’ fencing in some areas.

He did not answer Hannity’s question about the amount of wall that had been built or repaired.

‘We have repaired, I mean, literally — you know, many, many miles. I could give you numbers but many, many miles. We are building many miles. We’re going to have hundreds of miles already under construction are soon to be under construction,’ the president said instead.

He said The Army Corps of Engineers, which he commandeered to build the barrier, ‘is doing a great job working with us and we have some real professionals, and the military has been incredible, putting up the barbed wire, essentially, it’s barbed wire.

‘It’s actually barb wire plus,’ he said, significantly downgrading the structure he’d referred to in the past as ‘steel slat fencing’ and ‘see-through’ walling.

He said that he would hold a news conference on the border in two weeks, so the country could see all that he’s accomplishing.

‘I’m going to a location, it’s going to be in California, believe it or not, they were begging us to build in San Diego, begging us to build a wall and we are just in the process of completing a major stretch of many miles of wall, and we are going to have a news conference there just to show people,’ he said.
