President Trump: I 'Wouldn't Be Surprised' If Soros Is Funding Migrant Caravan
Reporter quizzed Trump on who he thought was behind financing the migrant crisis
President Donald Trump has stated he 'wouldn't be surprised' if globalist George Soros was funding the Central American migrant caravan, according to reports.
As the White House doubles down on the pressure in the massive influx of migrants heading to the United States from Central America, a reporter quizzed Trump on who he thought was behind financing it.
A reporter then asked: “George Soros? Who’s paying for it?” to which Trump replied:
“I don’t know who but I wouldn’t be surprised. A lot of people say yes.”
On Monday, Neon Nettle reported the United Nations admitted they were supporting the illegal immigrants and caravans from Central America marching towards the US southern board.
In a different report, the UN declared they had mobilized extra staff and resources to help the illegal immigrants in the caravans.
Soros, a billionaire philanthropist was among the targets of mail bombs sent to key Democratic figures last week, allegedly by Trump supporter Cesar Sayoc.
According to NewsWeek: Sayoc had frequently demonized Soros on Twitter and even after the pipe bombs were sent, posted a list of images linking him to Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, whom he dubbed a “$500,000 Soros Puppet."
Robert Bowers, the Pennsylvania man accused of killing 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue, had made various anti-Semitic online posts and had been obsessed with the idea that the caravan was financed by wealthy Jews and Jewish groups, NBC News reported.
In a social media post before the shooting, he had called the caravan a group of "invaders."
But after asking for unity in the wake of the attempted attacks, Trump criticized "globalists" and repeated the phrase "lock him up" while chuckling as a crowd member yelled to lock up Soros.
USA Today reported that the latest round of conjecture started on October 14 when Loretta the Prole, who has previously posted on social media about “white genocide,” tweeted the single word "Soros," next to a Washington Times story about the migrant caravan.
Identical posts quickly emerged on pro-Trump Facebook groups and were then amplified by Reddit and Twitter, quickly reaching hundreds of millions of users and becoming a plank in the U.S. midterm election campaign.
David Carroll, associate professor at The New School's Parsons School of Design in New York, told USA Today: “It’s significant how these memes can go from fever swamp-ish places to be amplified by lawmakers, even the president.
“From there, the impact on world events can’t be underestimated.”
