Trump says migrant caravan a campaign issue

CHIQUIMULA, Guatemala (AP) — U.S. President Donald Trump is again tweeting his displeasure over a caravan of some 2,000 Hondurans trying to wend its way toward the United States.

He had already warned Central American governments to stop it or face a cutoff of U.S. aid. Now he’s targeting Democrats and urging Republicans to use border security as a political issue in the upcoming elections.

Trump says it’s “Hard to believe that with thousands of people from South of the Border, walking unimpeded toward our country in the form of large Caravans, that the Democrats won’t approve legislation that will allow laws for the protection of our country. Great Midterm issue for Republicans!”

He continues: “Republicans must make the horrendous, weak and outdated immigration laws, and the Border, a part of the Midterms!”
