President Donald Trump warned migrants in a caravan that ventured to the US to wait for the army, saying that "fake news" was the fault for burning divisions and labeled the Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum as a "thief."
"OUR SOLDIERS WAIT FOR YOU!"
Trump again urged Central American migrants to return and say on Twitter: "Please go back, you will not be admitted to the United States unless you go through the legal process." This is an invasion of our country and our army is waiting on your! "
The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that the US military plans to deploy 5000 troops to the southwest border in anticipation of the caravan. The new figure is a significant increase compared to the first estimates of 800 troops.

NEWEST STARTING ON & # 39; FAKE NEWS & # 39;

The president did not quote specific reports or media, but said that the "Fake News Media" is "the true enemy of the people", using a label that he has applied in the past. His tweet came as CNN, a network that Trump frequently criticizes, announced a suspicious package that was addressed and intercepted in Atlanta Monday morning. It seems identical to the other packages that the authorities say were sent by the suspected Cesar Sayoc, who was arrested Friday, CNN said.

GILLUM A & # 39; THIEF & # 39;
With election day a little more than a week away, Trump said that voters in Florida's gubernatorial competition have a choice between GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis "and a Dem who is a thief and mayor of poorly run Tallahassee, who is said to be one of the most corrupt cities in the country!"
Trump gave no indication why he accused Gillum of being a thief. The city has been the subject of a federal corruption probe and Gillum has repeatedly said that he did not do anything wrong. Gillum reacted to Twitter and said that Trump "cries because he is weak." Florida, vote today. & # 39;
