Donald Trump took a break from defending the Saudi royal family, believed to have ordered the execution of a Washington Post columnist, to scare his base before the midterm elections with some good old fashioned Twitter fear mongering.

“In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of 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!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

What a lame ‘leader,’ and one has to ask why? Republicans control all aspects of our government, yet Trump blames Democrats for this caravan coming from Mexico.
