The President of the United States has again deviated from his own administration’s stated policy. Weeks after the administration announced its plans to collaborate with the Mexican government and reaffirmed its commitment to promoting a safer and more prosperous Central America, President Trump took to Twitter to proclaim otherwise.
President Trump on Friday threatened to cut foreign aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, accusing the Central American countries of “doing nothing for the United States but taking our money.”
“Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are doing nothing for the United States but taking our money,” Trump tweeted.
“Word is that a new Caravan is forming in Honduras and they are doing nothing about it. We will be cutting off all aid to these 3 countries – taking advantage of U.S. for years!”
