(Newser) – President Trump congratulated himself for falling oil prices. He chided the Federal Reserve over interest rates. He claimed Central American countries are trying to dump "certain people" into the United States. Trump's Florida holiday stay came to an end Sunday with a visit to his golf club for the fifth day in a row. But his tweeting took no break, the AP reports. The president patted himself on the back for a dip in petroleum prices, writing, "thank you President T." He also admonished the US central bank over the cost of borrowing money. In a separate tweet, he called on Mexico to stop caravans of Central American migrants from trying to reach the US border.

"Would be very SMART if Mexico would stop the Caravans long before they get to our Southern Border, or if originating countries would not let them form," he wrote, claiming, without evidence, that "it is a way they get certain people out of their country and dump in U.S. No longer." He blamed Democrats for creating the problem, demanding: "No crossings!" Trump also weighed in on the protests in Paris that were sparked by rising fuel taxes. "The large and violent French protests don't take into account how badly the United States has been treated on Trade by the European Union or on fair and reasonable payments for our GREAT military protection," Trump wrote, adding: "Both of these topics must be remedied soon." The White House did not immediately respond to questions about what the president was referring to.
