Trump praises Mexico for stopping caravan, avoiding 'giant scene' at border

Trump praises Mexico for stopping caravan, avoiding 'giant scene' at border

President Donald Trump credited Mexican authorities with disbanding a caravan of mostly Central American migrants that had been moving toward the USA border, a day after he authorized the National Guard to protect the crossing.

Mr. Trump has been fixated on the caravan this week, making it a recurring motif in his tweets, warning that it represented a grave threat to the sovereignty of the United States, and using it as a justification for sending the military to reinforce the southwest border.

The move, about which specifics were unclear, appeared to be prompted in part by news reports of the caravan moving toward the U.S. -Mexico border.

Trump has threatened to step back from the North American Free Trade Agreement as his administration focuses on reducing the US trade deficit, a possibility that has weighed on Mexican stocks on concern a protectionist USA would hit Mexico's economy and company profits.

But the movement's organizers insisted that the caravan would regroup in the Mexican city of Puebla in the next few days before continuing on to Mexico City, where it would officially end after meetings with government officials and possibly a street protest.

In his tweet Thursday, Trump also said that border crossings are at a 46-year low, but said the rate was still "unacceptable".
