MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff put a quick end to Trump’s excuse making and blaming for child separations in less than 30 seconds.
Soboroff said, “What the president said today, he said this is all loopholes in the immigration system. Yesterday he said it was the democratic policies. Every day we’re out here, 1,100 kids in this building and in this sector have been separated from their parent because of a policy that he put into place. That’s the only reason any of us are standing here today. We’ve flown in from all over the country to talk about what’s going on. What’s happening inside this building, more than anywhere else on the southern border. It’s not because of loopholes or Democrats. It’s because of Donald J.Trump.”
Trump’s lies are getting crazier by the minute, and they are being met with a wall of facts, which by the way might end up being the only wall that Trump gets built along the Southern border. The reporters who have descended on the border know the truth. They are seeing and hearing the stories.
What Trump is trying to sell isn’t reality. He thinks that he is playing some kind of game that everyone can see through. Donald Trump is winning this fight that he started. Every day there is a new excuse from Trump and this White House that is crazier than the last one blaming Democrats for this problem. This is Trump’s mess. He created it. Congress isn’t going to bail him out by funding his wall or giving him any of the changes to immigration that he wants.
Democrats aren’t going to budge.
There is only one person who is responsible for the pain, suffering, and trauma being inflicted on innocent children, and that person is President Trump.
