On Friday, Trump sent gunslung a tweet that no doubt sent some eyebrows runnin’ for the hairline: He said if Mexico doesn’t immediately cease and desist with the whole illegal immigration thing, next week, he’ll close the border.

“The DEMOCRATS have given us the weakest immigration laws anywhere in the World. Mexico has the strongest, & they make more than $100 Billion a year on the U.S. Therefore, CONGRESS MUST CHANGE OUR WEAK IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW, & Mexico must stop illegals from entering the U.S. through their country and our Southern Border. Mexico has for many years made a fortune off of the U.S., far greater than Border Costs. If Mexico doesn’t immediately stop ALL illegal immigration coming into the United States through our Southern Border, I will be CLOSING the Border, or large sections of the Border, next week. This would be so easy for Mexico to do, but they just take our money and ‘talk.’ Besides, we lose so much money with them, especially when you add in drug trafficking etc.), that the Border closing would be a good thing!”

Personally, I think Trump’s got a little more spring in his step here lately — the Mueller report was released, and Democrats all over looked like gigantic idiots (here, here, here, here, here, and here). At his speech last night in Grand Rapids, he even proudly hailed the end of the “ridiculous bullsh**.” And the audience loved it.

[I hate to tell The Donald, but nothing will ever, ever stop the ridiculous bullsh**. Nothing is more perpetual and timeless than the ol’ RBS.]

So feelin’ light on his feet, he took a punch, a jab, and a closetheborder.

On Thursday, he’d tweeted that he may close the border:

Hed also mentioned it at his Thursday night speech in Michigan.

Guess he got a little cozier with the idea.

In the news, the border issue is heating up — reports indicate a whole lotta sneakin’ going on, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan told the El Paso Times Wednesday that the situation’s at a “breaking point.”

Due to a illegal immigration spike in the El Paso sector, the highway was closed over the weekend near checkpoints.

And there’s also this stunning clip, which you should definitely check out (here).

At the Grand Rapids rally, he said it’s simple, really:

“Mexico could stop them so easy. … If they don’t, it’s going to cost them a hell of a lot of money. … We will close the damn border.”

The Donald’s growin’ some pants!

What’s next? Him “locking her up”?

He’s got his mojo, folks. Step back. Give him some room. And watch him go.
