President Trump has blasted out a series of Twitter posts on Friday, all tied to his ongoing battle with Democrats over border security and funding for a border wall.

The president mentioned a recent Washington Examiner report, where ranchers on the border admit they’ve found Muslim prayer rugs left behind by Middle Easterners coming across the U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump tweeted: Border rancher: “We’ve found prayer rugs out here. It’s unreal.” Washington Examiner People coming across the Southern Border from many countries, some of which would be a big surprise.

President Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for attempting to leave the country in the middle of the shutdown, writing: Why would Nancy Pelosi leave the Country with other Democrats on a seven day excursion when 800,000 great people are not getting paid. Also, could somebody please explain to Nancy & her “big donors” in wine country that people working on farms (grapes) will have easy access in!

The president quoted GOP Senator Jim Inhofe in another tweet:

“It’s the Democrats keeping everything closed.” @JimInhofe So true!

Trump commented on the new caravan of migrants which started out for the United States from Honduras on Monday night and Tuesday morning, and has now made it across the border into southern Mexico.  The migrants are telling reporters they are coming for jobs.

Trump tweeted:  Another big Caravan heading our way. Very hard to stop without a Wall!

The government shutdown has now lasted four weeks, as President Trump insists on funding for a border wall, and Democrats have dug in their heels and insist they will not give it to him.

President Trump said that Republicans are standing together, and will not cave:

Never seen the Republican Party so unified. No “Cave” on the issue of Border and National Security. A beautiful thing to see, especially when you hear the new rhetoric spewing from the mouths of the Democrats who talk Open Border, High Taxes and Crime. Stop Criminals & Drugs now!

President Trump also posted a video of himself outside the Oval Office, stressing the importance of the border wall.
