WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is making a new threat to send armed soldiers to the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump tweeted Wednesday that “Mexico’s Soldiers recently pulled guns on our National Guard Soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the Border,” but he didn’t support the drug-smuggling claim. We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border. Two U.S. soldiers in a remote area of Texas recently were confronted by Mexican soldiers who thought the Americans had crossed into Mexico. Trump recently backed off his threat to seal the entire border , citing Mexican cooperation.
