Trump says he’s reducing Central American aid over migrants

WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump says the US will begin “cutting off, or substantially reducing” aid to three Central American nations over a migrant caravan heading to the US southern border.
Trump tweets: “Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the US“
The three countries received a combined more than $500 million in funding from the US in fiscal year 2017.
Trump has raised alarm over a group of thousands of migrants traveling through Mexico to the US, saying, “Sadly, it looks like Mexico’s Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan.”
He adds: “I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergy.” White House officials could not immediately provide details.
