President Trump is not turning the other cheek after a group of Mexican soldiers detained and disarmed two members of the U.S. National Guard on OUR side of the border. “Better not happen again!” Trump tweeted. “We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border.” According to reports, our soldiers were outnumbered by Mexican troops and only released after they explained IN SPANISH that they were still on American soil. President Trump speculated that the notoriously corrupt Mexican military was detaining the Americans as a “diversionary tactic” for drug smugglers passing through the area.

President Donald Trump reacted to the news Wednesday that Mexican soldiers had detained and disarmed two members of the United States National Guard on American soil.
“Better not happen again!” Trump wrote on Twitter. We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border.”
The American soldiers allowed themselves to be disarmed, according to reports, after the Mexican soldiers held them at gunpoint. They were released after the soldiers explained in Spanish that they were still on American soil.
“Though they were south of the border fence, US soldiers remained in US territory, north of the actual border,” CBP officials explained in a statement after the incident.
