President Donald Trump on Sunday said that voting for Democrats
would support the caravan of Central American migrants,
which he referred to as “an invasion.”

Speaking at a campaign rally in Chattanooga,
Tennessee in support of Republican Senate candidate Marsha

“That’s an invasion. I don’t care what they say,” Trump said.

Turn back now, because you’re not getting in,” he said of
