US President Donald Trump on Thursday said that he was "bringing out the military" to protect the US border as a caravan of Central American migrants continues through Mexico on their trek to the United States.

"I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!" Trump wrote in a post on Twitter. It was not immediately clear what new policy he was referring to.

"Brandon Judd of the National Border Patrol Council is right when he says on @foxandfriends that the Democrat inspired laws make it tough for us to stop people at the Border. MUST BE CHANDED, but I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency. They will be stopped!" his tweet read.

Meanwhile, in the series of the latest tweet, Trump also accused the media of stirring up "anger" as the United States reeled from a series of suspicious packages and pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats and actor Robert De Niro.

"A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News," Trump tweeted.

"It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!"
