This morning, president Trump doubled down on his attack of Chuck Schumer, referring to him yet again as "Cryin Chuck."

"Humanitarian Crisis at our Southern Border. I just got back and it is a far worse situation than almost anyone would understand, an invasion! I have been there numerous times - The Democrats, Cryin’ Chuck and Nancy don’t know how bad and dangerous it is for our ENTIRE COUNTRY...." he tweeted Friday morning.

He added: "...The Steel Barrier, or Wall, should have been built by previous administrations long ago. They never got it done - I will. Without it, our Country cannot be safe. Criminals, Gangs, Human Traffickers, Drugs & so much other big trouble can easily pour in. It can be stopped cold!"

Trump called referred to Schumer by the derogatory nickname earlier this week when he denied claimed that he threw a tantrum and pounded the table during a meeting with Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi and Schumer to discuss the border wall.

“I didn’t pound the table. I didn’t pound the table. That is a lie,” he said. “All of that narrative is a lie.”

He did offer up some good immigration news.

"H1-B holders in the United States can rest assured that changes are soon coming which will bring both simplicity and certainty to your stay, including a potential path to citizenship. We want to encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S." he said on Twitter on Friday.

He also responded to critics who have pointed out that the president promised that Mexico would pay for the wall. He wrote:

"I often said during rallies, with little variation, that “Mexico will pay for the Wall.” We have just signed a great new Trade Deal with Mexico. It is Billions of Dollars a year better than the very bad NAFTA deal which it replaces. The difference pays for Wall many times over!"
