    “You listen to the fake news back there and you think they’re all wonderful people, right?” he said of the 4 000 migrants currently clashing with Mexican authorities in an attempt to cross into the US.

    “You got some bad people in those groups, you got some tough people in those groups. I tell you what, this country doesn’t want them. We don’t want them,” Trump said.

    After the US administration threatened to cut off foreign aid to Honduras and El Salvador if the caravans continue, the president of Honduras, Juan Orlando Hernandez, announced an agreement with Guatemala to send Honduran civil defense personnel to airlift any migrants who wish to return to Honduras.

    Salvadoran president Salvador Sanchez has not yet publicly responded to the threat of no US aid.

    Trump warned that the military would deal with the group of illegals. “If that doesn’t work out, we’re calling up the military, not the guard, we’re calling up the military and we’re going to have the military stationed. They’re not coming into this country, they might as well turn back.’

    On the same day, the caravan of Central American migrants broke through police barricades in Chiapas, Mexico, flooding in from over the border from Guatemala. They were waving Honduran flags, despite having expressed their desire to join the US, Breitbart reported.

    Mexico’s riot police tried to stop the migrant caravan by using tear gas, but they charged at the police line and broke through.

    The group may not be only migrants heading for the United States.

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted on Thursday night that “the most recent estimate suggests that a caravan’s worth of uninvited migrants arrives at our border every few days”. He said they were being supported by Democrats.

    “Why is this happening? Because an entire political party is inviting it and encouraging it,” Tucker explained.

    Trump repeated his warning at a rally in Mesa on Friday that the caravan of migrants contained bad people. “You got some bad people in those groups. You got some tough people in those groups, and I’ll tell you what, this country doesn’t want them!”

    He said that Democrats were “openly inviting” illegal immigrants to pour across the border into the United States and blamed current laws for being too lax. “People are saying there’s a lot of money being passed around so that this would normally hit just before election,” Trump told a rally in Montana on Thursday.

    He said allowing the “catch and release” of migrants were inviting others follow and it has also become difficult to deport them. “The law doesn’t allow us to throw them the hell out,” he said.

    Trump said Democrats were obstructing his attempts at reforming the US immigration laws. “Let’s get these people out of there, there’s something wrong, they’re cuckoo,” he added.

    Thousands of people had lined up in Arizona to hear Trump speak.
