WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump made a new threat today to send armed soldiers to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump tweeted this morning that “Mexico’s Soldiers recently pulled guns on our National Guard Soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the Border,” but he didn’t support the drug-smuggling claim.

He tweeted: “Better not happen again! We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border. Mexico is not doing nearly enough in apprehending & returning!”
