The "Outnumbered" panel on Friday discussed President Trump's threat to shut down the "whole border" with Mexico if immigration becomes "uncontrollable."

Speaking to reporters while in Florida for the Thanksgiving holiday, Trump threatened to close the U.S. border with Mexico for an undisclosed period of time if his administration determines that its southern ally has lost "control" on its side.

Trump also took to Twitter Friday to call for Democrats and Republicans to "come together" on a border security package, including funding for his long-promised wall. This all comes amid concerns about a potential influx of migrant caravan members seeking entry to the U.S.

Rachel Campos-Duffy said it's clear that Trump is "frustrated" and he's attempting to put pressure on both Congress and Mexico to act on illegal immigration and border security.

"The base really agrees with him on this. It's why he won the election, it's why ... the Senate is still in play," Campos-Duffy said. "He's trying to keep the pressure on."

She said that if Trump shuts the border down, it would obviously have a negative impact on both the U.S. and Mexico's economies.

"I think what he's doing is trying to put it back on the table and force people to take a position on it," Campos-Duffy said.
