Trump Is 'Most Thankful' For His Own 'Tremendous' Work. Twitter's Jaw Drops

"We're going to some interesting things at the appropriate time", Trump said. "I think they're exhausted of fighting".

He noted he didn't want the military 'taken advantage of'.

Trump also said he had given the military the authorization to use lethal force if necessary on the border with Mexico.

Trump then tweeted for the umpteenth time about safety at the US border.

Trump has not shied away from politicizing the military in the past, and on Thursday, he drew on United States men and women in uniform to justify his controversial deployment of almost 6,000 USA troops to the southern border. We actually just closed it. We all know what happened to David Souter.

'It's not that big a deal, ' he said. "Very unsafe and unwise!"

When reporters asked if they could get a copy of the order, he responded: 'You don't need it'.

By no means did he seal the border with Mexico.

Trump said "large numbers of people are forming at our border", and said, "in many cases, we have no idea who they are, and in many cases, they're not good people".

Thousands of migrants have been fleeing Central America to get to the border, and the president sent nearly 6,000 troops there earlier this month.

The U.S. government only processes about 100 asylum applications per day at Tijuana's main crossing to San Diego and there were already several thousand migrants on a waiting list.

He has been pushing his administration to do more to enforce border security, an issue he touted in the recent midterm election.

His comments came as a caravan of refugees and migrants is travelling towards the USA from Central America.

Trump also defended his daughter, Ivanka, after it emerged earlier this week that she had used a private email account to discuss or relay official White House business, a practice evocative of the one for which Trump harshly criticized Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign.

A Tuesday NBC report claims the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is using not only intelligence taken from U.S. officials working with Mexican authorities to track the notorious migrant caravan, but also information obtained from migrant organizing groups on WhatsApp.

His comments come after he pledged over the weekend to visit US troops in a war zone either in Iraq or Afghanistan.

He praised the deployment of United States troops in the border area and compared his administration's border battles to U.S. military operations against militants overseas.

In the "Cabinet memo" that he signed, Kelly justified the action by arguing "credible evidence and intelligence" had suggested the migrants 'may prompt incidents of violence and disorder'.

"Justice Roberts can say what he wants", Trump tweeted, referring to a rare statement from the top-ranking member of the Supreme Court defending the independence of the judicial branch of government, "but the 9th Circuit is a complete & total disaster".

And he said Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, whom he has faulted for not being tough enough on immigration, is "in there trying".
