Trump Threatens Military Action If Mexico Doesn't Stop Migrant Caravan

President Trump said on Twitter that he will do everything in his power to put a stop to the caravan of thousands of migrants on their way to the Southern border, including using military power, if Mexico doesn't stop them. 

In a series of tweets Thursday morning, Trump also blamed Democrats for the “assault on our country” by illegal immigration.  

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S,” he said. 

“In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

“The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”

Trump’s tweets come in response to the caravan of more than 4,000 people who are traveling from Honduras toward the U.S.’s southern border.

The president also threatened earlier this week to withhold aid from Honduras if the country failed to stop the caravan.
