The video was Peña Nieto's first public response to Trump since the USA president kicked off a week-long barrage of tweets and statements blasting everything from US immigration laws, the Mexican government, Democrats, NAFTA and Honduran asylum-seekers.

Alfredo Corchado, the Border-Mexico correspondent for The Dallas Morning News, covered the presidential campaign launch this week of one candidate in the northern states of Mexico. "Everybody said, 'oh, he was so tough.' I used the word rape".

"Five migrants who were part of the caravan arrived here this week, but they're already gone", he said. "And the Democrats, what they're doing is just, it's insanity, nobody understands what's going on".

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto rebuked him over his plan to send National Guard troops to the border, urging Mr Trump not to vent his domestic political "frustration" on Mexico.

"And remember my opening remarks at Trump Tower when I opened. We will act only in the best interest of Mexican".

While Trump did not clarify exactly what he was referring to, his comments appear to reference a caravan of Central American migrants making their way through Mexico toward the USA, a subject Trump has mentioned several times in recent days.

However, female migrants argue with Trump's claims saying they chose to travel with the caravan for protection. Still others split off from the caravan last week, apparently to try their luck at crossing on their own. And yesterday it came out where this journey is coming up, women are raped at levels that nobody's seen before. Many have been given temporary transit visas which they intend to use to request asylum in the United States.

U.S. President Donald Trump is reusing an insulting claim from the beginning of his presidential race. Those numbers continued to fall in the first six months of fiscal year 2018.

Through February, the number of unaccompanied minors dropped 36% over the previous year's same time period, and the number of family units - parents traveling with minor children - declined 46% over that time.

Trump on Wednesday ordered the militarisation of the border in an attempt to flex his muscle, to what he considers an intolerable increase in illegal immigration.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has said that the Trump administration is working with four southwestern states to deploy the Guard troops, Reuters reported.

The governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, also announced on Friday the shipment from next week of 150 soldiers of the National Guard to his border zone.
