Trump threatens sending “armed soldiers” to US-Mexico border

WASHINGTON, US President Donald Trump threatened Wednesday sending armed soldiers to the US-Mexico border, saying Mexico is “not doing nearly enough.” Trump said in a tweet “Mexico’s Soldiers recently pulled guns on our National Guard Soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the Border.

“Better not happen again. We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border,” he remarked.

He added “Mexico is not doing nearly enough in apprehending and returning” In a separate tweet, Trump said that “a very big Caravan of over 20,000 people started up through Mexico. It has been reduced in size by Mexico but is still coming.” He stressed that “Mexico must apprehend the remainder or we will be forced to close that section of the Border and call up the Military. The Coyotes and Cartels have weapons.” Trump declared a national emergency earlier this year and announced earlier this month that may shut down the border with Mexico but would rather impose tariffs.
