Trump tweets: ‘We will be taking strong action today’ on border security

President Trump on Wednesday tweeted about “taking strong action” on border security.

“Our Border Laws are very weak while those of Mexico & Canada are very strong. Congress must change these Obama era, and other, laws NOW! The Democrats stand in our way – they want people to pour into our country unchecked….CRIME! We will be taking strong action today,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The tweet echoed his remarks to reporters on Tuesday.

“The Mexican border is very unprotected by our laws. We have horrible, horrible and very unsafe laws in the United States, and we’re going to be able to do something about that. Hopefully soon,” Trump said.

“We are preparing for the military to secure our border between Mexico and the United States. We have a meeting on it in a little while,” Trump added. “I think that it’s something we have to do.”
