President Donald Trump on Tuesday compared Democrats with Central American nations that let migrants stream to the U.S., saying they both have "been taking U.S. money for years, and doing absolutely nothing for us."
Trump tweeted Tuesday, days after announcing he would end $500 million in funding for Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador:
"After many years (decades), Mexico is apprehending large numbers of people at their Southern Border, mostly from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. They have ALL been taking U.S. money for years, and doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for us, just like the Democrats in Congress!"
"I'm not playing games," Trump said last week while in Florida, according to Univision. "I've ended payments to Guatemala, to Honduras, and El Salvador. No money goes there anymore.
"We were giving them $500 million. We were paying them tremendous amounts of money and we're not paying them anymore because they haven't done a thing for us," he said. "They set up these caravans in many cases. They put their worst people in the caravan. They're not going to put their best in. They get rid of their problems, and they march up here."
