After Trump’s announcement that he would cut aid to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, the Fox and Friends Weekend crew erroneously referred to the three countries and “3 Mexican Countries.” Trump’s plan to cut aid would act as a disincentive for sending migrant caravans to the U.S.
According to The Daily Beast, although the headline lasted only a few seconds it was soon all over social media, such as Twitter. After the headline went viral, Fox and Friends Weekend fill in co-host Ed Henry issued a correction on-air.
“Now we want to clarify and correct something that happened earlier in the show. We had an inaccurate graphic onscreen while talking about this very story. We just want to be clear, the funding is being cut off to the three Central American countries. We apologize for the error- it never should’ve happened.”
To be clear, Mexico is only one country and was not mentioned in Trump’s announcement.
