Trump Makes Baseless Claim Central American Countries Formed Caravan to Dump ‘Certain People’ in United States

 

President Donald Trump claimed on Sunday that the migrant caravan is formed by Central American countries as a means of expelling “certain people” and “dumping” them in the United States.

Trump made the unfounded claim in a flurry of tweets blasted out from his resort in Mar-a-Lago on Sunday, where he is spending the Thanksgiving break.

“Would be very SMART if Mexico would stop the Caravans long before they get to our Southern Border, or if originating countries would not let them form (it is a way they get certain people out of their country and dump in U.S. No longer),” Trump wrote. “Dems created this problem. No crossings!”

He also bemoaned protestors in France for not taking “into account how badly the United States has been treated on Trade by the European Union”:
