US President Donald Trump has strongly refuted allegations that the security forces had to use tear gas at the Mexican border because they were ‘being rushed by some very tough people’ but it was not used on children.
Trump was replying to reporters’ queries at the White House over US Border Patrol authorities using tear gas at the Mexican border to repel caravans of illegal immigrants trying to enter the United States.
“We didn’t. We don’t use it (tear gas) on children,” he said.
“They had to use because they were being rushed by some very tough people, and they used tear gas. And here’s the bottom line: Nobody is coming into our country unless they come in legally,” Trump asserted.
Over the past few weeks, Trump has asserted that no foreign nationals would be allowed to enter the country illegally and they would have to come to the US through legal process.
