Donald Trump Took Credit For Inventing the Word "Caravan"

Donald Trump seemingly took credit for inventing the word "caravan" when he asked the audience at his El Paso rally what they think about the word. It's impossible to know whether Donald was taking credit for inventing the word itself or whether he is taking credit for using the term to describe asylum seekers fleeing unspeakable bloodshed that travel together to the US-Mexican border in hopes of obtaining amnesty in the US. Either way, he is not telling the truth.
