Mr Trump had already threatened on Tuesday to cut off millions of dollars of aid to Honduras if the country didn't prevent the thousands of people fleeing violence and poverty from reaching the US.

In his series of Thursday tweets, Trump threatened to rip up a recently signed trade agreement with Mexico if Enrique Peña Nieto's government doesn't act to stop illegal immigration and the drug trade at the border, with Mexican drug cartels making an estimated $19-29 billion per year on drug sales in the US.

US President Donald Trump addressed the situation on Twitter, warning he could take military action to close the US' border with Mexico to stop the flow of immigrants from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. Saturday will mark a week on the march for the throng of hopefuls who plan to assemble on the U.S. -Mexico border and demand entry.

"The media's over-the top slurs against those of us who believe the system must change and the border must be protected speaks volumes about their bias and their real motivation, which is to help Democrats", she said.

"We will offer jobs, work to Central Americans".

USA -bound migrant caravans have been going on for years - with traveling in numbers seen as offering protection from assaults, robberies, even shakedowns by police.

In recent days Mexican authorities have made a point of showing they were stepping up security near the country's southern border.

Immigration advocates and experts on global refugee law say that providing transit documents to those in search of protection would be the reasonable and humane response.

Current Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Videgaray was also sanguine and viewed things through the lens of USA politics.

Trump also suggested that the migrants hoping to enter the USA are linked to crime and drugs that he said are "pouring in", and he called on Mexico to stop the "onslaught". If Mexico ultimately cracks down on the caravan, it would be seen as a coup for the administration in the United States - especially among Trump's supporters -and would speak to how successful efforts to build bridges with the Mexican government have been, even as Trump continues to boast about building a border wall.
