Donald Trump Charged That Mexican Soldiers Drew Weapons on US Soldiers to Protect Smugglers

Type: Conspiracy TheoriesApr 24 2019 Severity:

Donald Trump charged that Mexican soldiers drew their weapons on US soldiers they accused of entering Mexican territory did so to protect drug smugglers trying to enter the United States. The baseless accusation drew a swift rebuke from Mexican officials and threatened to worsen already heightened tensions between the two countries after years of Trump's never ending attacks on asylum seekers traveling through Mexico en route to the United States. To be clear, there is zero evidence that the soldiers who drew their weapons on the US soldiers were doing so to protect drug smugglers.
