And throughout, Trump was sure to congratulate himself, telling the officers that the country is doing exceptionally well on his watch.

US President Donald Trump used a Thanksgiving phone call to troops deployed overseas to complain about a federal appeals court in California that temporarily blocked a proclamation on asylum.

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen (L), walks next to a section of the border wall fortified with razor wire separating Tijuana, Mexico, and San Diego, on November 20, 2018. He said the Haitians found jobs and "inserted themselves in the city's economy" and had not been involved in any disturbances. And he threatened to shut down the entire US-Mexico border over the approach of the few thousand migrants.

"Could there be a shutdown?"

"We're getting some bad decisions from the 9th Circuit, as usual", Trump told reporters clustered around his desk at his Mar-a-Lago resort, where he is spending the holiday.

"Disagreeing with a court's decision is everyone's right, but when government officials question a court's motives, mock its legitimacy, or threaten retaliation due to an unfavorable ruling, they intend to erode the court's standing and hinder the courts from performing their constitutional duties", Carlson's statement Wednesday read.

As he did previous year, Trump spent part of Thanksgiving at a Coast Guard station in South Florida, shaking hands and posing for photos.

"Judges must not Legislate Security and Safety at the Border, or anywhere else".

"The whole border. I mean the whole border", Trump said.


He was apparently referring to Monday's temporary closure of all northbound vehicle traffic at the nation's busiest port of entry, San Ysidro. Most of the lanes were reopened before the morning rush.

After the call wrapped, Trump continued to focus on the 9th Circuit and his administration's efforts to prevent the group of migrants - many of whom are seeking asylum - from crossing into the USA illegally.

Trump asserted that there are "fistfights all over the streets" in Tijuana, Mexico, and that "these are not like normal, innocent people". I hope they don't have to, but you're dealing with a minimum of 500 serious criminals. "I don't want that in this country".

"We'll be doing some interesting things", he replied. They know nothing about it and are making our Country unsafe.

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". I have no choice, ' he noted after speaking to USA troops to wish them a Happy Thanksgiving.

Mr Trump told troops it was "a disgrace" that judges had blocked his attempts to overhaul U.S. immigration law, as he linked his efforts to secure the border with military missions overseas. But he was adamant the military would remain within its legal limits. "Let them go home". Generally, U.S. troops are authorized to use force in self-defense.

But Trump continued to warn about the situation on the southern border as he took questions from reporters, pointing to the caravans of Central American migrants that have been making their way toward the USA and warning that, "If we find that it gets to a level where we lose control or people are going to start getting hurt, we're going to close entry into the country for a period of time until we get it under control".

The Taliban maintain they are seeking a schedule for withdrawal of all USA -led foreign forces from the country before engaging in intra-Afghan talks.

"We're either going to have a border or we're not", Trump said.
