President Trump answers reporters’ questions outside the White House as he departs for a campaign rally tonight for Sen. Ted Cruz in Houston, Texas.
Trump said the US will “begin cutting off” foreign aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador over the caravan of thousands of migrants now making its way through Mexico towards the American border.
The U.S. President continued:
“We got to stop them at the border. And unfortunately, you look at the countries, they have not done their job unfortunately. They have not done their job.
Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, they’ve paid a lot of money every year. We give them foreign aid and they did nothing for us, nothing. They did nothing for us. So we give them tremendous amounts of money — you know what it is, you cover it all the time.
Hundreds of millions of dollars, they like a lot of others do nothing for our country”.
