President Donald Trump took credit for the breakup of a migrant caravan of Central Americans making their way through Mexico bound for the U.S. border, in a Thursday tweet.

Trump has railed against the caravan in recent days threatening to sink NAFTA negotiations with Mexico if they did not stop it and even threatening foreign aid to Honduras for allowing so many of its citizens to depart bound with the intention to illegally emigrate.

“I told Mexico very strongly: You’re going to have to do something about these caravans that are coming up.  And I just noticed that the caravan now, which is toward the middle of Mexico coming up from Honduras, is breaking up very rapidly,” he said in a Tuesday public appearance.
