It was just a ploy to get his cult to vote. He duped his cult and the media.

Other than retweeting one WH message about new asylum rules, Trump’s Twitter feed has been silent since Election Day about the caravans approaching the southern border, which he constantly called a crisis in the days running up to the midterms

Notice that the caravan totally disappeared as an issue as soon as the votes were cast — not just Fox News, but mainstream media too. Guys, you really need to take a hard look in the mirror and ask why you're so easily played 2/

Trump tweets about the "caravan:"
Before Election Day: 9
After Election Day: 0
Meanwhile, there are more than 5,000 troops deployed along on the border, away from their families, for this political stunt. Shameful.

The president has not tweeted about the caravan “invasion” since before the election.

To those who believed Trump’s lies about the phony caravan crisis before the election, why isn’t State Run Media talking about the caravan today?
Because Trump and his media hacks played you for racist fools. And what did you do but swallow the bait whole. 🤔

Post-election reality: The caravan is no longer front page news, but mass shootings still are.

Well, coverage of the migrant caravan stopped on November 7.
Just like coverage of Weiner's laptop stopped November 9, 2016.
Just like coverage of Ebola stopped November 5, 2014.
The media's top story is whatever Republicans say it is. Every. Single. Time.

Every Republican voter I spoke to in Texas, without exception, mentioned the caravan & border security as motivating factors in their midterm vote. https://t.co/4QPMZYWnMA

To those media outlets who covered extensively the " the invading caravan" before the election– sometimes on page one — but now have completely dropped reporting on this alleged national security threat, realize how badly Trump played you & don't repeat.

While Trump had you focused
on a caravan of immigrants
killed 12 people in a a bar
killed 11 people in a synagogue
sent pipe bombs to other Americans
tried to shoot up a black church
killed black people at a Kroger

My latest: Now that the election's over, Fox News and Trump seem to have lost interest in the caravan.

Trump dropped that Caravan like a second wife who hit her 40's.

A Week After the Midterms, Trump Seems to Forget the Caravan https://t.co/NqI507ZUpY
