President Trump on Wednesday warned Mexico after their soldiers reportedly drew guns on U.S. troops at the border last week, while also calling on America's southern neighbor to do more to halt another north-bound migrant caravan.
Mexicos 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! he tweeted.
The presidents tweets come after several Mexican military personnel reportedly questioned U.S Army soldiers who were on patrol duty near the border in Texas. Mexican soldiers reportedly pointed their weapons at U.S. troops during the encounter. The Mexican soldiers reportedly believed that the U.S. Army soldiers were on Mexican territory.

It’s long past time to declare the Mexican Cartels to be terrorist organizations, and to deal appropriately with the Mexican government’s collaboration with them.
Regardless of that any Mexican soldier who ever again pulls a gun on an American citizn on American soil should be sent back home in a body bag. After that I doubt it will happen again.
NG not Military, Military went to Sig Sauer 2 yrs ago. Might explain the Unmarked vehicles too. NG gets left overs.
O good, a stern warning. I just cannot believe that’s it.. The President of the most powerful country in the world tell mexico, just dont do it again.
Another aravan 10000 is on their eay, laughing at our impotence and stealing valuable resources from children.
Remember that Navy patrol boat that was captured by the Iranians a few years ago, captained by an Academy grad, and there was a lot of suspicion that they had been ordered to let themselves be taken rather than resist and risk hurting Iranians. I thought we had left that crap behind with Trump and out guys would be allowed to protect and defend themselves.
it better not happen again Im sure Mexico is terrified and taking that warning to heart.../sarc
As well as our CIA’s and pols/guv officials’ collaboration with them.
So, lets build a Big Beautiful Wall so that there can be no confusion as to which side of the boarder we are on.
Ensure we have aggressive Rules of Engagement and then send a copy to MX.
Mr. President, who knows better than to forecast intentions, please don’t say what you’re gonna do; just do it. It will be self=explanatory.
[it better not happen again Im sure Mexico is terrified and taking that warning to heart.../sarc ]
I’m sure a well placed MOAB will get the message across....
Now there’s a leader!
Trump didn’t say what he’s going to do.
>>>So, lets build a Big Beautiful Wall so that there can be no confusion as to which side of the border we are on.
The incident happened on a slice of U.S. territory south of the border wall but north of the actual border.
Diversionary Tactics for Smugglers!
Come on, Trump. You can do better than obammy’s stern words.
One can chalk this up to the effing chaos at the border.
Wait for the long black robed court jesters to put a stop to that.
