Before taking office on January 20, 2017, the Republican president was already a very active figure on social networks, but over the past few weeks he has been more active than usual, making great emphasis on criticisms on the country's migration regulations.
In recent Twits over the weekend, the occupant of the White House demanded a change in the Senate's rules to eliminate filibustering and approve laws with a simple majority of 51 votes of 100 seats in the Upper House, instead of the 60 votes that are needed at present.
Such a reform would allow the Republicans, who hold 52 seats in the Senate, to approve laws without the support from the Democrats, whom Trump blames of 'ridiculous' migration norms in the United States.
In this campaign against undocumented people, the president also seemed to end the possibility to reach an agreement that will favor the beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that he decided to eliminate in September last year.
In addition, he accused Mexico of doing nothing to prevent the arrival of illegal migrants in the United States and of 'laughing of our silly immigration laws.
'As ridiculous as it sounds, the laws of our country do not easily allow us to send those crossing our Southern Border back where they came from. A whole big wasted procedure must take place. Mexico & Canada have tough immigration laws, whereas ours are an Obama joke. ACT CONGRESS,' he posted on Twitter.
According to Trump, 'Honduras, Mexico and many other countries that the U.S. is very generous to, sends many of their people to our country through our WEAK IMMIGRATION POLICIES. Caravans are heading here. Must pass tough laws and build the WALL. Democrats allow open borders, drugs and crime!
With those statements, Trump is showing a change in the tone of his stance weeks ago, when he seemed to be more willing to negotiations, and is taking a tougher position like the one he held during his 2016 campaign.
