"Not sure why the media is acting like this isn't a well-established fact - women and young girls are brutally victimized on the journey north, strikes me as quite weird that reporters would try to cover up the gross atrocities perpetrated by smugglers and coyotes", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement after Trump's comments. But the logistics remain fluid.
On Easter Sunday, Trump began his assault on the asylum-seekers following a Fox News segment about the group.

"We thought it would be better to flee". He has warned that Mexico must stop the group or risk being penalized in the negotiations over revising the North American Free Trade Agreement.
White House spokesman Hogan Gidley clarified and told reporters that Trump wasn't talking about the caravan but rather about extreme victimization of those making the journey north with smugglers in general. He has also threatened to reduce US aid to Honduras, the home country of numerous marchers.
