President Trump has attempted to once again whip up the Mexican immigrant caravan hysteria, claiming that there is a caravan with 20,000 is fast approaching the southern border.

"A very big Caravan of over 20,000 people started up through Mexico. It has been reduced in size by Mexico but is still coming. Mexico must apprehend the remainder or we will be forced to close that section of the Border & call up the Military. The Coyotes & Cartels have weapons!" he tweeted.

Trump then slammed the Mexican government for not doing enough to apprehend and return migrants and, even claiming that Mexican soldiers had “pulled guns” on U.S. troops.

"Can anyone comprehend what a GREAT job Border Patrol and Law Enforcement is doing on our Southern Border. So far this year they have APPREHENDED 418,000 plus illegal immigrants, way up from last year. Mexico is doing very little for us. DEMS IN CONGRESS MUST ACT NOW!" he wrote on Wednesday morning.

He then added that the incident was “a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers” and armed troops were being sent to the border.

His propaganda over illegal immigration, mostly from Mexico and South America, was a huge part of his success in the 2016 elections. But his spin of illegals flooding the country has led to a rise in white nationalist groups and far-right attacks in the country.

Many now feel that the president is gearing up to wage outright war on Mexico. If he doesn't, we're sure his vigilante loyalists will do the work for him.
