    US President Donald Trump has threatened to cut financial aid to three Central American nations for failing to stop a large group of migrants making their way towards the US border.

    The caravan of roughly 7,000 people is travelling through 30-degree temperatures in Mexico, where locals are handing out water, sandwiches, and other supplies to help support the migrants and refugees.

    Mexican authorities are still trying to determine how to handle the desperate influx.
