Trump threatens Mexico with armed soldiers at border


President Trump has drawn a line in the desert with Mexico, as the president threatened to send armed U.S. soldiers to the southern border after a Mexican military patrol drew their weapons on a group of U.S. National Guardsmen patrolling the border.

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

Mexican authorities said that their soldiers believed that their U.S. Army soldiers were patrolling on Mexican territory, and not on American soil.
