Is Donald Trump afraid of the caravan of immigrants walking by foot toward our southern border? Thousands of people have been fleeing the violence of Central American countries. The children struggle to keep up, as the people walk step after step, hopefully toward safety and job opportunities. By the time they reach the border, they will have walked 20 miles a day, 2000 miles.
As POTUS readied to board the Marine One helicopter, he stopped to take a few questions from reporters. He was on his way to Texas, where he will hold a campaign rally for his former competitor in the 2016 presidential election, Ted Cruz. The Texas Republican has been running neck-and-neck against the Democrat candidate, Beto O’Rourke.
Trump has made very apparent how much he disliked people of color. This included black people, people of the Muslim religion, people from the Middle East, and the caravan inching forward from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. The president continued, The Washington Times reported:
‘We give them hundreds of millions of dollars, they do nothing for us.’
These countries have been the source of most of the people, including children traveling solo, coming to the U.S. Mexico is the destination of others.
In addition, the commander-in-chief was unhappy with Mexico. He wanted them to put the brakes on the caravan before it reached our border.
Earlier, the man sitting in the Oval Office claimed that terrorists had folded themselves into the caravan. Before boarding the helicopter, the president went into more detail:
‘You’re going to find MS-13, you’re going to find Middle Eastern, you’re going to find everything.’
Trump claimed that the caravan was picking up people as it snaked northward. He said there were more than the number reported last week. He put the number over 5,000. The Mexican media estimated that there were between 7,000 and 14,000 individuals. At this time, there are no estimates how many of the travelers are children.
