President Donald Trump says that if immigrants throw rocks at American troops they will not be shot but they are going to be "captured". He had previously said that US soldiers would have to react to migrants throwing rocks as if they were "rifles". (November 2nd)
President Donald Trab gave rare details of his mid-term election strategy in Montana on Saturday, saying to an audience that "there is no reason to continue" for the economy of the nation, the "crisis" runs at the border.
"I can only go for four or five minutes with these things, and then the crowd says" we cherish you, "and then begin to fall," said Trump in Belgrade, Montana, the last stop in his final campaign swing before the election on Tuesday. "When we fix a problem or fix a problem, there is no reason to continue for 45 minutes."
Instead, Trump has revived migration as an important issue in his rally, based on a Central American caravan that makes his way through Mexico as a symbol of what he describes as what happens to the laws of immigration of the United States. Democrats oppose the chairman who uses the caravan, hundreds of miles from the border, to instill fear.

Trump, who has been systematically discussing unemployment and increasing employment in his gatherings, has campaigned in Montana for Matt Rosendale, who protests against the incumbent Democratic Sen. Jon Tester. Later on Saturday, he will launch a campaign in Florida before running a series of races on Sunday and Monday.

"But we have a problem at the border," Trump told the public. "We have our army now at the border and I noticed all these beautiful barbed wire that are going up today." Barbed wire, used properly, can be a beautiful sight. "
Trump started on the line he had been regularly involved in his meetings in the last days of the campaign, linking the issue of immigration to women voters who could be key demographics in elections to decide the control of the House and the Senate.
"Women want safe neighborhoods for their families, great schools for their children and they want violent predators as we talk about being thrown into jail or being thrown out of our country," said Trump.
Trump gave no indication that the caravan includes "violent predators". He has highlighted estimates from the Department of Homeland Security released this week that "over 270 people along the caravan path have criminal stories, including the known gang." The department has not said what these numbers are based on.
Some Republicans have questioned why the president is not talking about the cluster more about the economy, which has done well in the first two years of its mandate. Unemployment declined to 3.7% in the previous month, a rate that has not been achieved since the 1960s.
Polls show that economy, immigration and health care are all the top issues of voters.
