President Donald Trump visited the U.S. Customs and Border National Protection Targeting Center on 12379 Sunrise Valley Drive late last week.

At the roundtable with homeland security officials on Friday, Trump touted his immigration plan, which he said was vital to protect the country’s borders, according to the Associated Press.

He also threatened to cut off aid and sanction countries that refuse to accept nationals deported by the United States, according to the news report.

“If they don’t take ’em back, we’ll put sanctions on the countries, we’ll put tariffs on the countries,” Trump said. He added: “They’ll take ’em back so fast your head would spin.”

His administration is seeking billions of dollars for a border wall and major cuts to legal immigration. In return, the administration has proposed plans to create a path to citizenship for people living in the country illegally.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection National Targeting Center works to catch travelers and detect cargo that threaten security, according to its website.

    …immediately after the speech, Trump grabbed a Big Mac at the Wiehle McDonalds on his way to Lowe’s Island for more golf.

      You have a tendency to make stuff up. Are you a Russian troll?

    The Great Negotiator, the guy who has such business smarts and who promised to negotiate great deals for everyone, is reduced to making threats, shaking his sword and delivering ultimatums to everyone he sees. What a con artist.

      The community leader was the ultimate con artist.

      Just what we needed along with the retirement of a few Dem Congress people.

  • Why do you bother?

    I feel a need to hose down my house.

    That explains the orange dust in the air that day.
