President Trump is calling on the president of Honduras to stop the migrant caravan heading to the U.S.

In a tweet Tuesday, the president said he “strongly informed the president of Honduras” that if the caravan is not stopped the U.S. will pull all aid to the country — effective immediately.

This comes after a large group of migrants reportedly crossed the Guatemalan border on Monday.

The group left Honduras Friday, just days after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned South American citizens against crossing into the U.S.
