WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Friday backtracked from his suggestion a day earlier that U.S. troops sent to the U.S. border with Mexico would be free to fire on migrants who throw rocks at them, saying that rock-throwers would only be arrested.Won't people just cut poor ol' Trump some slack?! He hasn't yet had much practice in doing what Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu and his minions have done routinely to the Palestinians for years.
“They won’t have to fire. What I don’t want is I don’t want these people throwing rocks,” Trump told reporters outside the White House. “If they do that with us, they’re going to be arrested for a long time.”
When I was a kid, there was a wry bit of praise/disparagement that ran, "Slicker' 'n snail snot."
