WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is blasting central American countries, including Honduras and El Salvador, for failing to stop the caravans of migrants trying to make their way to the U.S.
Trump is complaining at a rally in Georgia that "we pay these countries hundreds of millions of dollars" even though "they don't do a damn thing for us."
He says, as he has before, that he wants to cut U.S. aid to the countries, threatening that "we'll be stopping very soon."
Trump has made the caravans and illegal immigration a centerpiece of his closing argument as he tries to rally his base ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections.
Trump is telling the caravans to turn back and insisting they will not be allowed in.
He's again labeling their efforts "an invasion" and says, "We're not playing games."
