President Donald Trump's fear-mongering tweet just two weeks before the midterms is another example of his fascistic use of racism and ignorance to drum up his base to get them to the polls.

What Trump is actually saying is the strongest nation on earth is afraid of a few thousand poverty-stricken migrants literally running for their lives.
