Trump's tweet on Sunday came several days after the government said more than 1,800 children separated at the US-Mexico border have been reunited with parents and sponsors after a federal judge ordered the reunions.

Hundreds of children still remain separated.

Following a day of relative silence on Twitter, Trump says: "Please understand, there are consequences when people cross our border illegally, whether they have children or not — and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes."

He also says Congress must fix "the DUMBEST & WORST immigration laws anywhere in the world!" and urges voters to "Vote 'R'" in November.
