President Trump threatened Thursday to close the southern border if Mexico does not stop the caravan of migrants from reaching the U.S.

Mr. Trump said Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador are effectively assaulting the country as hundreds of immigrants flee those nations. He once again warned that the U.S. would stop spending money on those nations if the migrants succeeded in making it to the border.

The president also blamed Democrats for the massive migrant movement.
