President Trump is threatening to close the southern border as his administration continues building the wall after the failed house override vote of his national emergency.

In a tweet Thursday, the president slammed Mexico for “doing nothing to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants coming to our country.” He then blasted Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador for taking money “for years,” and also doing nothing to help.

He ended with tweet, saying “the Dems don’t care” and hinting he may close the southern border.

On Tuesday, House Democrats failed to to block his veto of a disapproval resolution of his national emergency, allowing funds to be reprogrammed to build the wall.
