US President Donald Trump threatened Tuesday to cut aid to three Central American nations if they let people travel to the US illegally, in a reaction to a caravan of some 2,000 migrants advancing through Guatemala with hopes of reaching the US border, ABC News reported.

Late Tuesday, Trump said via Twitter that the US had conveyed the same message to the governments of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, telling them that US aid will stop if they allow migrants to travel from or across their countries with the intent of entering the United States without permission.

“Anybody entering the United States illegally will be arrested and detained, prior to being sent back to their country!” he added
