President Trump has ordered a welcoming committee to greet the Central American migrant caravan at our border with Mexico – and it’s the U.S. military. In an early Thursday morning tweet, President Trump threw down the gauntlet to the mob marching northward, and it wasn’t just rhetoric. The order was executed with roughly eight hundred soldiers en route to help Homeland Security and the National Guard with “logistical support.” Is it possible that Mexico could be conspiring to help Trump gain seats in the U.S. Senate?

NARRATOR: It wasn’t a bluff. Donald Trump had threatened to send the military to close the border when the immigrant “caravan” first formed in Honduras and Guatemala. Earlier this morning, he reiterated his warning:
Brandon Judd of the National Border Patrol Council is right when he says on @foxandfriends that the Democrat inspired laws make it tough for us to stop people at the Border. MUST BE CHANDED, but I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!

Sure enough, the order went out — although for the moment, it doesn’t exactly look like a militarization of the border:
Hundreds of U.S. troops are set to make their way to the southern border to help Homeland Security and the National Guard as a caravan with thousands of migrants moves north, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News on Thursday.
