Fox News Got Roasted After Graphic Refers To '3 Mexican Countries'
Fox news landed on some trouble after the graphic referred three countries from Central America as 3 Mexican countries.
Fox news was on hot water lately for referring three countries from Central America El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras as “Mexican countries.”
The network's morning show, “Fox & Friends,” was discussing President Donald Trump’s plan to cut aid to the three Central American nations while the graphic displayed “Trump cuts U.S. aid to 3 Mexican countries.”
El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras independent and separate nations, located south of Mexico situated in Central America geographically.
President Trump blames these three countries for the recent increase of asylum-seekers to the U.S-Mexico border.
Due to troubling conditions within their home countries, many of the migrants sought asylum in America to which the US provided relief. However, Trump is working on eliminating migrants from his country thus, new plans concerning financial aid cut could eliminate programs which kept people from migrating northward.
