  • Donald Trump's tweets come amid tense negotiations over NAFTA between his administration and that of Mexican President

"We are preparing to have the military to secure our border between Mexico and the United States", Trump said when reporters questioned him for more details. He says, "We're going to be doing things militarily until we can have a wall and proper security".

Trump also remarked on the United States' relationship with Russian Federation during a joint news conference with the leaders of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania stating, "I think I could have a very good relationship with Russian Federation and President Putin and that would be a good thing, great possibility that won't happen".

President Donald Trump with a US Customs and Border Protection agent during a tour of border-wall prototypes near the Otay Mesa Port of Entry in San Diego, California, March 13, 2018. Under president George W Bush, National Guard forces from all 54 USA states and territories were used between 2006 and 2008 for things such as border-related intelligence analysis but did not have a direct law enforcement role, according to the Pentagon.

He said he had already held discussions with Defense Secretary James Mattis on the issue.

"If it reaches our border our laws are so weak and so pathetic.it's like we have no border".

Trump tweeted earlier Tuesday that the caravan "better be stopped before" it reaches the US border, and dangled the North American Free Trade Agreement as "in play", an apparent threat to cancel the trade deal that has benefited Mexico's economy. Buzzfeed, which first reported on the caravan, said that Mexican officials had not yet attempted to stop the flow. He lamented what he called "horrible" US laws that left the southern border poorly protected.


Mr Trump, who earlier threatened to halt U.S. foreign aid to Honduras and other countries unless they stopped a "caravan" of Central American migrants headed to the United States, called use of the military at the southern border "a big step".

Sending troops to the border would not be unprecedented.

The $1.3 trillion funding package included $1.6 billion in border wall spending - far less than the $25 billion Trump made a last-minute push to secure.

The Guard members were used for surveillance, communications, administrative support, intelligence, analysis and, in some cases, the installation of border security infrastructure.

The "nuclear option" that Trump referred to is a way that the Senate can break through obstruction by the Democrats and vote on a bill with a simple majority.

"Mexico has the absolute power not to let these large "Caravans" of people enter their country", Trump wrote on Twitter on Monday morning. From 2006 to 2008, at most 6,000 National Guard members aided border patrol efforts. After days of walking along roadsides and train tracks, the organizers now plan to try to get buses to take participants to the final event, an immigrants' rights conference in the central state of Puebla later this week.
