President Donald Trump is taking aim at Mexico once again and threatening to shut down the border. 

On Thursday, the President posted on social media, saying he is watching the "assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, 'INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S."

He went on to say, "I must in the strongest terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!"

He also said, "Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!"
