MTrump attacked the comments on Friday after former US generals, including a former chairman of the chiefs of staff, rejected the idea and questioned the legality of such measures.
The US president changed the course and said, "You [soldiers] I do not want to shoot What I do not want, I do not want these people to throw stones. "
He added, "What she [migrants] The Mexican military was a shame. They beat them with stones … they do it with us, they get arrested. "
Earlier on Friday, the Nigerian army, which had been charged with numerous human rights abuses, used Mr. Trump's statements to substantiate the deadly shootings of demonstrators who flung the stones.
The Nigerian army's official Twitter account posted a video of Mr. Trump's comments: "Please pay attention and make your deductions." The tweet has since been deleted.
