Trump again threatens to send armed soldiers to US-MEX border

Drumpf tweeted Wednesday that "Mexico's Soldiers recently pulled guns on our National Guard Soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the Border," but he didn't support the drug-smuggling claim.
Instead of threatening to send additional soldiers along the US-MEX border, he'd better appoint a meeting with Lopez-Obrador to create a mutual plan for the two countries. That's what a rational president would do, he would participate in diplomatic actions. Yet again, we are not dealing with a rational president but with a grown-up crybaby who likes to brag with its uncontrolled power, it's macho-like behaviour.
Two U.S. soldiers in a remote area of Texas recently were confronted by Mexican soldiers who thought the Americans had crossed into Mexico. The Mexican troops reportedly removed a weapon from one of the American soldiers.
Why, though?
