Today may have been the biggest trainwreck to date for the Trump administration. According to the AP, Donald Trump spoke to the Mexican president and actually threatened to send U.S. troops in to attack people within the country.

Besides this being a declaration of war and against international law, this is likely a preview of what is to come. Here's what the AP writes:

Donald Trump threatened in a phone call with his Mexican counterpart to send U.S. troops to stop "bad hombres down there" unless the Mexican military does more...The excerpt of the call did not detail who exactly Trump considered "bad hombres,"

This was not the only call Trump blundered today. He also spoke with the Prime Minister of Australia, and after getting into a debate about refugees, Trump hung up on the Prime Minister.

There will likely be a response from the Mexican President soon, but the way in which Trump is ready to threaten war is unprecedented (or as Trump would spell it, "unpresidented").
