President Donald Trump went to twitter to say the United States would cut off aid to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador because they hadn’t halted “people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S.” For decades, the U.S. criticized totalitarian regimes that wouldn't allow their own citizens to leave their countries. By demanding that these countries stop their citizens from leaving, Trump broke from that precedent.
