In what could go down as one of the worst ideas of all time, Reuters is reporting a handful of the thousands of Central American migrants camped out at the U.S.-Mexican border have launched a hunger strike to protest their plight!
President Trump has risen to become the President of the United States and a multi-billionaire because he understands the Art of War and the Art of Leverage.
But it strikes me as though the Caravan doesn’t understand leverage because they appear to have none, and launching a hunger strike only serves to hurt themselves.
Not exactly the Art of the Deal in action, is it?
But yet here they go.
Amazingly, the strike is not to protest the United States, but rather Mexico!
Take a look:

Migrants from the Central American caravan camped out at the U.S.-Mexican border have launched a three-day hunger strike to protest the Mexican police blocking their way north.
Members of the thousands-strong caravan began arriving at the border earlier this month and are camped out in Tijuana, across the border from San Diego, Calif.
A 22-year-old Honduran migrant told Reuters Thursday the group's 72-hour-or-so hunger strike aims to draw attention to the standoff at the border.
What the police are doing is unfair. The truth is we are fighting for our rights,” Gerson Madrid said. “Why are [the police] treating us like this if we’re not causing them or the Mexican people any trouble?”
The migrants who have already reached the border have been sleeping in an overcrowded shelter since they arrived. Mexican immigration authorities began transporting some of them by bus to another shelter.
The new facility just opened Thursday and is larger than the previous shelter, which could hold about 2,000 people.
