Donald Trump points to new migrant caravan in border wall demand

President Trump demanded Tuesday that Democrats “stop playing political games” and pointed to a new migrant caravan to stress the need he sees for a border wall.

“A big new Caravan is heading up to our Southern Border from Honduras,” he tweeted. “Tell Nancy and Chuck that a drone flying around will not stop them. Only a Wall will work. Only a Wall, or Steel Barrier, will keep our Country safe! Stop playing political games and end the Shutdown!”

The Associated Press reported on Tuesday that about 600 of migrants left Honduras late Monday night to make their way to America. Around 300 were able to take buses, while approximately another 300 set out on foot. They’re set to take the route thousands of others took last year through Guatemala and Mexico.

The government shutdown, extending its record as the longest in U.S. history, is now on its 25th day with no new negotiations in sight.
