Donald Trump deployed US Troops to the border for a pre-election stunt, and kept them deployed through Thanksgiving.

Trump tweeted furiously for days before the election about an invasion from a migrant caravan, and then deployed over 5,000 troops to the border to deal with the fake emergency.

After the election, he forgot all about them, not mentioning the caravan or the troops he deployed to deal with it for ten days.

The troops remained deployed through Thanksgiving without encountering any caravan.
