Agony of Donald Trump has become a prominent part of his life, and as each time he tries to deploy a new strategy, a wave of protests rises up to protect their interest as he continues to threaten US-Mexico border.
So, having said that Donald Trump’s latest count of anguish is threatening to deploy US military, and close the southern border with Mexico, in case a convoy of migrants from Central America is allowed to keep moving northwards.
A humongous group of convoys consisting of 4,000 people, mostly from Honduras has planned to head through Mexico towards the US border, and the ongoing activity has infuriated Trump.
In his anguish tone, which he would often use in any of the cases, he once again Tweeted early on Thursday morning, and said, “I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!”
Donald Trump has been harsh at times while commenting on Mexico, and even earlier threatened to stop payments worth hundreds of millions of dollars as an aid to Honduras.
Mexico on their part have also issued a warning and stated that anyone who forcefully tries to enter without a passport and visa, will be detained and deported. It has also deployed 500 federal officers including riot police on the border city of Tapachula, to ensure migrants cannot cross the border.
The diplomatic meetup between Mexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto and the US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, is scheduled next, who will look forward to drawing out a common conclusion.
Trump, also stated that the group of convoys moving towards US pose a direct threat to the United States, as they threaten to promote gang violence.
Contrarily, his statement of gang violence has produced no proofs as yet. Nonetheless, as most reports suggests the group has decided to move out of Mexico in order to safeguard themselves from criminals, who target migrants for robbery, rape and kidnap.
However, Trump has already strategized to safeguard borders of US, and has thus, deployed troops on frontiers with Mexico, with national guard members from Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California also working on border security.
In a series of tweets that came on Thursday, Donald Trump also said “The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA,” referring to a trade agreement between the US, Mexico and Canada. “Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”
So, as the group of convoys steadily moves towards the US, it would be interesting to find out if the meeting between Mexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto and the US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, can yield something fruitful.
