At a rally in Montana, President Trump hinted at the Honduras caravan being paid for but didn’t specify by who?
President Donald Trump suggested Thursday that someone was paying migrants in the caravan traveling to the United States from Honduras.
“We’re starting to find out, and I won’t say 100 percent, I’ll put a little tiny question mark at the end … but a lot of money has been passing through people to come up and try to get to the border by election day,” Trump said during a campaign rally in Montana.
Two days ago Rep. Matt Gaetz(R) sent out these two tweets:

UPDATE: Because a Honduran government official sent me this video, I believed it came from Honduras. https://t.co/Jhh2231TNL

Now, of course, The President backing these claims gives it further credence. Although the media calls him liar Trump rarely makes claims like these without having some sort of evidence to back it up.
