President Trump is under fire for saying that the massive migrant caravan– the same migrant caravan that completely disregarded authorities in Guatemala and Mexico– contains dangerous people.
Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them.

I’ve seen some reports say that the caravan is swelling to 7,000 people. Of course, Trump is in big trouble for questioning the intentions and status of some of the migrants involved.
“Do you have any evidence that there are terrorists part of this caravan?” reporter John Karl asked Trump.
Trump issued the snarkiest response of all time, and I’m ALL about it.
“You know what you should do, John?” Trump began. “Go into the middle of the caravan, take your cameras and search. Okay? No, no. John, take your camera.”
“Go into the middle and search,” he continued. “You’re going to find MS-13. You’re going to find Middle Eastern. You’re going to find everything. Guess what? We are not allowing them in our country. We want safety.”

Do it guys. Seriously. If these are the most peaceful people in the entire universe, go check it out and report back. Why won’t they do that? Oh. Because it’s dangerous. These reporters are full of it.
Trump to reporters asking about his tweet that “Middle Easterners” are traveling in the caravan: “take your camera, go into the middle, and search. You’re gonna find MS-13. You’re gonna find Middle Eastern.”

You gonna volunteer, Jim?
It’s not totally comprised of innocent women and children, people. Get smart. That’s Trump’s point. And here’s the thing: Either way, these are people trying to come into our country ILLEGALLY, and that’s NOT OK. Period.
