'Caravan' enrages Trump

Donald Trump lashed out on immigration again after being spurred by images of a "caravan" of Central American migrants headed for the US border.
The US president took to Twitter to attack Mexico for allowing the 1,500-strong group to march toward the United States.
He then threatened to abrogate the North American Free Trade Agreement, which groups the United States, Mexico and Canada, while demanding Congress pass tougher immigration legislation and support his plan for a wall along the Mexican frontier.
He also declared he no longer supported a replacement for the program that offered protection against deportation for about 700,000 undocumented immigrants, most of them Mexicans, who went to the United States as children.
