Chaos! President Trump offered Mexico some advice on deporting migrants massed in Tijuana and threatening to storm the U.S., telling the neighboring nation in a tweet to send them "back to their countries" by plane or by bus - or face a permanent closure of the border. Trump's tweet followed a vow from Mexico to deport migrants who tried to illegally enter the U.S. The Trump administration has said asylum claims from members of a series of caravans originating in Central America must be processed outside the U.S., and that all those entering illegally will be denied.
Escalating! The tense tug-of-war between Russia and Ukraine escalated Monday, a day after three Ukrainian naval vessels were reportedly fired at and then captured by Russian coast guard ships - actions denounced by the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations as "outrageous" and a "provocation." Nikki Haley, speaking at an emergency UN Security Council meeting Monday, said Russia's reported actions in the Kerch Strait were an "outrageous violation of sovereign Ukrainian territory" and marked "yet another reckless Russian escalation." "[It's] an arrogant act that the international community must condemn," she added.
