President Trump lashed out again on Tuesday at the Central American migrant caravan making its way across Mexico toward the U.S. border, claiming that Middle Eastern terrorists had infiltrated the group. Pressed by a reporter, Trump admitted he had no proof to back his claim.
President Donald Trump: “They say it happens all the time, from the Middle East. It’s not even saying bad or good, but some real bad ones. But they intercept.”
Reporter: “But there’s no proof that they’re in the caravan now?”
President Donald Trump: “Well, they could very well be.”
Reporter: “But there’s no proof.”
President Donald Trump: “There’s no proof of anything. There’s no proof of anything. But they could very well be.”
Vice President Mike Pence claimed Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández had spoken to him about the caravan.
Vice President Mike Pence: “He told me that the caravan, that’s now making its way through Mexico, headed for the southern border, was organized by leftist organizations and financed by Venezuela.”
Later in the broadcast, we’ll go to Phoenix, Arizona, to speak with immigrant rights organizer Jacinta González about a shocking new report detailing how companies like Amazon, Palantir and Microsoft are profiting from and expediting Trump’s deportation operations.
