"Any deaths of children or others at the Border are strictly the fault of the Democrats and their pathetic immigration policies that allow people to make the long trek thinking they can enter our country illegally", Trump tweeted Saturday.
Nancy Pelosi, who is expected to be House speaker in the new Congress, has vowed to "swiftly" reopen the government once her Democrats take control of that chamber from the Republicans on Thursday.
The president's comments came Saturday afternoon, the same day Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was in Yuma, Arizona, to meet with medical staff at the border. Caal's father has denied Customs and Border Patrol's (CBP's) claim that she did not consume food or water days before crossing the border.
Annunciation House director Ruben Garcia answers questions from the media after reading a statement from the family of Jakelin Caal Maquin, pictured at left, during a press briefing at Casa Vides in downtown El Paso, Texas, on December 15. Felipe's father, Agustin Gomez, told a Guatemalan official that the boy first showed signs of illness Monday morning, the day he died.
Trump's tweets refer to 8-year-old Felipe Gomez Alonzo, who died on Christmas Eve after being taken into custody by immigration officials last week, and 7-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquin, who suddenly died earlier this month while in USA custody.
Nielsen has called the death "deeply concerning and heartbreaking" and requested medical help from other government agencies, including the U.S. Coast Guard. As Nielsen made the trip to Texas, New Mexico's Democratic senators, Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich, sent her a letter Friday seeking answers about the boy's death.
He also tweeted that the children were "very sick before they were given over to Border Patrol".

Mr. Trump's tweet came as the president and congressional Democrats are deadlocked over funding for a border wall.
"For those that naively ask why didn't the Republicans get approval to build the Wall over the past year, it is because IN THE SENATE WE NEED 10 DEMOCRAT VOTES, and they will gives us "NONE" for Border Security!"
Waldman says Nielsen will tour multiple stations and substations operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Nielsen will go to Yuma, Arizona, on Saturday.
After an agent noticed Felipe coughing, he was taken to hospital with his father and was diagnosed with a common cold and was suffering from a fever.
New Mexico's Medical Investigator's office said in a statement that nasal and lung swabs during an autopsy found Gomez had influenza B, but said "determining an accurate cause of death requires further evaluation".
Felipe was held for observation for 90 minutes before being released but fell sick hours later and was re-admitted to the hospital, where he later died. After the boy began to vomit and had a fever, he was taken back to the hospital in the evening, where he died just before midnight on December 24.
