Award-winning journalist John Heilemann said that Trump and Republicans must be made to pay a price for his child separation policy by the American people voting for Democrats in November.
Heilemann said on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House:
I have found the last week or so and particularly the last 48 hours or so, some of the most disheartening and appalling period of my entire adult life covering politics and watching what’s been happening in this what happened today is really an easy story. The president bowed to political pressure. We have not seen him do that often. We have seen many politicians do the president usually tries to push his way through. It was undeniably intense and he folded. It’s great. It should be heartening to some people that it is possible for this president to be pressured to stop from doing vile things.
