    The Honduran government claims the mastermind behind it all is the former opposition congressman and long-term migrant activist Bartolo Fuentes.

    He says all he did was support the caravan on Facebook. Conspiracy theories aren’t necessary he said - the reality is simpler. He said, "It’s not Trump that organized this, nor the Democrats, and not Venezuela either. It’s hunger, poverty."
