En effet, le président américain a, mardi matin, menacé le Honduras de couper toutes aides si le petit État d'Amérique centrale ne faisait rien pour bloquer le passage à une caravane de 2,000 migrants tentant d'entrer aux États-Unis.

→ "Je dois, dans les termes les plus forts, demander au Mexique d'arrêter cet assaut - et si je ne peux pas le faire, je ferai appel à l'armée américaine et fermerai de notre frontière sud!" Donal Trump reprend ainsi un de ses principaux thèmes de sa campagne présidentielle victorieuse de 2016, à trois semaines d'élections législatives cruciales pour la poursuite de son mandat. Partis samedi dernier depuis San Pedro Sula, situé à 180 km de la capitale, Tegucigalpa, l'objectif affiché par ces migrants est de se rendre aux États-Unis.

Un autre millier de Honduriens ont de leur côté franchi mercredi la frontière avec le Salvador avec l'intention de traverser le pays pour rejoindre la marche au Guatemala. Donald Trump a également visé les membres du parti démocrate, qui veulent selon lui "ouvrir les frontières" et sur lesquels il a rejeté la responsabilité de "lois faibles".

"L'assaut sur notre pays à notre frontière sud, y compris les éléments criminels et les DROGUES qui affluent, sont beaucoup plus importants pour moi, comme président, que le commerce et l'AEUMC", le récent accord commercial conclu en septembre entre le Canada, le Mexique et les Etats-Unis, a poursuivi M. Trump dans un troisième message. Il rencontrera jeudi le président du Panama Juan Carlos Varela, afin de discuter de la relation entre les deux pays mais aussi des "problématiques régionales dont la lutte contre les narcotiques, le terrorisme et l'immigration illégale", précise un communiqué du département d'Etat.
