Trump Says He's Sending 'Armed Soldiers' to Border Following Incident

Source: Bloomberg

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said he plans to send “armed soldiers” to the southern U.S. border, once again blasting Mexico for “not doing nearly enough” to apprehend migrants.

“Mexico’s Soldiers recently pulled guns on our National Guard Soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the Border,” he wrote in a Wednesday morning tweet. “Better not happen again! We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border. Mexico is not doing nearly enough in apprehending & returning!”

The April 13 incident actually involved Mexican soldiers briefly confronting U.S. counterparts in Texas, with the Mexican soldiers believing that they were on their own soil, according to accounts from the Pentagon and Mexico’s Foreign Ministry.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was conciliatory after being told of Trump’s tweets on Wednesday.

2. Speaking of which - do we KNOW exactly where the border is for WALL?

I'd guess that way out in the dessert there could be some uncertainty as to where exactly the border is. Just a guess.

3. Only in his fervent dreams

The incident was between two soldiers and Mexican authorities. Cleaned up and they moved on. So now the fat donnie network will make a big story about a minor incident.

4. Republicans don't know where the border is. Too dangerous for them

Republicans don’t know where the border is.

Fox ‘journalist’ recognizes how dangerous it is at the border.

Tactical protective gear for the tv camera

Reporter/journalist wore a backpack/diaper bag on his front to look like bomb/bullet protective gear

As he heroically went into a 'danger' zone.

The Internet was merciless in ridiculing him.

Lots of photoshop.

11. That's humiliating.

While amusing to see this guy look like an ass. It's scary when you think about what his intent was. I don't think it was just for him to "look cool", but rather to subtly continue to plant the idea about how dangerous our southern border is and why we must all be afraid. Sadly this works too well. I know a few people who only watch fox news and I'm always amazed how skewed their view of reality is.

8. He's trying to start a war. That's why he warned Republicans they would regret not listening to him.
