Unpacking Trump’s tweets on caravans and 'Cheatin' Obama'

You may need a guide to keep up with President Trump’s Twitter feed.

The commander-in-chief continued his latest Twitter tirade Tuesday, railing against immigration, the Justice Department and CNN.

Although these are some of the President’s favorite targets, he’s introduced new material, from “caravans” to nicknames, that’s left many puzzled.


The President has repeatedly warned of “Caravans” crossing over the border with Mexico and into the United States.

“The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our “Weak Laws” Border, had better be stopped before it gets there,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

It was the fourth time since Sunday that Trump raged about droves of immigrants coming over the border.

The President was likely inspired by more than 1,000 migrants who on Sunday crossed into Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S.

The annual migration is in its fifth incarnation, and led by "Pueblo Sin Fronteras," a group whose name translates to “People Without Borders.”

Many are fleeing a chaotic criminal and political situation in Honduras, which has brought the country down for years.

“My idea is to get to the United States and look for a job, because in our country, there is not enough work,” said Sayra Madrid, who fled the embattled nation, told CNN.

Trump has called on Mexico to break up the group, who began traveling from a town close to the border with Guatemala.

“There’s a lot of pressure from authorities to stop the caravan because of Donald Trump’s reaction,” Rodrigo Abeja of “Pueblo Sin Fronteras” told Reuters on Monday.


Trump’s bargaining chip with Mexico is withdrawing from the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.

The former reality TV star has made his distaste for the 24-year-old trade deal with Mexico and Canada well known, and the U.S. is currently in tense talks to restructure the trade deal.

He’s directly address NAFTA in three tweets since Sunday, calling it Mexico’s “cash cow” that milks the U.S. of jobs and money.

If Mexico doesn’t crack down on the massive migration north, Trump has warned, he’ll pull out of the trade pact all together.

News networks

Trump again stood up for Sinclair Broadcasting — which has come under fire for its eerie message to viewers about media bias.

He suggested Tuesday that the “Fakers” from ABC, CBS, CNN and NBC “are worried about the competition and quality of Sinclair Broadcast.”

And he took a personal swipe at CNN boss Jeff Zucker, misspelling his name as “Little Jeff Zuker, whose job is in jeopardy, is not having much fun lately.”

“They should clean up and strengthen CNN and get back to honest reporting!” he tweeted Tuesday morning.


The only honest one in Trump's book? Polling firm Rasmussen, for reporting Trump had a 50% approval rating among likely voters, "which is higher than Cheatin’ Obama at the same time in his Administration."

The daily Rasmussen poll published Monday is the only one that currently puts him at or above 50%.
