Trump: I’ll Use Military to Secure Border

The president is committed to protecting American borders, and he said he'll use the military to do it.

President Trump, speaking to the media at a meeting with the leaders of the Baltic states, told reporters that he would use the U.S. military to secure the southern border until he gets his wall. As a “caravan” of “thousands” of Hondurans marches toward the U.S.-Mexican border, the president pledged to protect American sovereignty.

“It’s like we have no border,” Trump said, blaming President Obama for instituting the policy of “catch-and-release.”

“The laws that were created by Democrats are so pathetic and so weak,” he added.

“I spoke with General Mattis. We’re going to be doing things militarily. Until we can have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military,” Trump told reporters. “It’s a big step.”

The president requested that Mexico stop the “caravan” from reaching the U.S. border, threatening to otherwise scuttle any new NAFTA deal.
