CBN: Trump May Send 15,000 Troops to Border, Vowing ‘We’re Not Going to Let Them Come Into Our Country’

It looks like Donald Trump is going to ride dishonesty into election day. He is suggesting that, without military might, the current caravan will invade the United States. Trump knows that is untrue but he also knows that his base will buy just about any BS from Agent Orange. We have a unique new class of citizens: People who like being lied to.

“As far as the caravan is concerned our military is out,” President Trump said early Wednesday at the White House. “We have about 5,008. We’ll go up to anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel on top of Border Patrol, ICE and everybody else at the border. Nobody’s coming in. We’re not allowing people to come in.”

These people are 1,500 miles away and they are moving on foot. What exactly are those 5,008 troops doing other than providing a dystopian photo op. CBN puts the number of migrants at 700. Troops:Migrants=20:1. This is a disgrace to demonstrate to the world that we are so damned afraid that brown people might steal something from white people. Were these Canadians, the racist Trump would be silent.

Do voters not realize how much time, energy and money is being wasted? We will find out next Tuesday.
