President Donald Trump made a new threat Wednesday to send armed soldiers to the U.S.-Mexico border.
U.S. troops are already at the border to help reduce illegal crossings.
Mexico’s Soldiers recently pulled guns on our National Guard Soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the Border. Better not happen again! We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border. Mexico is not doing nearly enough in apprehending & returning!

Asked if Trump will, in fact, send additional troops to the border, Conway replied: “He may.”
Two U.S. soldiers in a remote area of Texas recently were confronted by Mexican soldiers who thought the Americans had crossed into Mexico. The Mexican troops reportedly removed a weapon from one of the American soldiers.
