Trump blames deaths of migrant children on Democrats
29 replies, posted
President Trump responded to the recent deaths of two migrant children in U.S. custody for the first time Saturday, blaming Democrats' "pathetic immigration policies that allow people
to make the long trek thinking they can enter our country illegally."
"Any deaths of children or others at the Border are strictly the fault of the Democrats and their pathetic immigration policies that allow people to make the long trek thinking they can
enter our country illegally. They can't. If we had a Wall, they wouldn't even try!" Mr. Trump tweeted.
"The two ... children in question were very sick before they were given over to Border Patrol," he wrote in a second tweet. "The father of the young girl said it was not their fault, he hadn't
given her water in days. Border Patrol needs the Wall and it will all end. They are working so hard & getting so little credit!"
Jakelin Caal, 7, died in government custody earlier this month. Caal's father has denied Customs and Border Patrol's (CBP's) claim that she did not consume food or water days before
crossing the border. Felipe Gomez Alonzo, 8, who died on Christmas Eve, was apprehended by border patrol agents on December 18, and on December 24, a CBP agent noticed Felipe
was coughing and appeared to have "glossy eyes."
Mr. Trump's tweet came as the president and congressional Democrats are deadlocked over funding for a border wall. Mr. Trump has refused to sign any partial government funding bill
that does not contain the money he wants to build it.
Border patrol agents who Mr. Trump says are "getting so little credit" are not receiving pay while the government is shut down, as they are federal employees.
Well, I saw that coming. Of course he'd use the death of children in his ongoing game of political football.
Trump deserves a slow, painful end, whenever that may come. I don't think I've ever felt hatred for another human being on the planet as much as I feel it for him.
insert bike pic with Trump photoshoped on it here.
Republicans had control but it didn't get done, now Trump is making a scene of things before they actually lose power to make it seem like it isn't his fault that he fucked up
We had the same batshit crazy rhetoric here in Germany regarding dead children in the mediteranian sea, meanwhile the same people stated in public that they would like to allow the use of guns for defense of the borders.
I'm sure there are plenty of people who've done worse, and deserve more hate, but it's far easier to hate someone who is on your doorstep versus someone on the other side of town.
I can't wait for Donald Trump to be in the ground tbh
And then Repubican voters can feel good about themselves cause they'll just use this as their excuse now, while kids continue to die.
I can't believe this idiot is still trying to push the wall.
What a soulless bastard
Successfully insuring that he will receive very little cooperation from House Democrats in 2019.
they've lost power, the house is recessed until january 3rd, ryan has packed his bags and sold his condo.
I'm guessing this is going to be the longest government shutdown since ever, I have a feeling it's going to be longer than everyone thinks before one side falters.
The Democrats can't afford to capitulate. They can capitalize from reminding the public that Trump is holding the government hostage over a stupid wall.
WaPo not holding back (this isn't an opinion article)
I had the visceral urge to punch my monitor when I saw the title and this is coming from someone that's been über-chill since starting to take anti-anxiety medication.
Expect more to come from the never ending rabbit hole of dilemmas, cause-and-effect will lead these situations to different future scenarios not an optimistic end.
On one end, there very likely were worser people than Trump and those two...
But taking the "history is there so that people learn from mistakes" train of logic, you'd expect certain things to not happen again, but here we are, in 2019, with what is probably literal concentration camps in America, mass genocide, and open wide nuclear dickwaving.
I hope there's nothing to bury.
Id rather see him torn down from his podium and made to watch as we systematically undo every wrong he ever did and have his name and face stricken from everything bar a short mention under the word "idiot" in the dictionary. he will be stripped of everything that made him feel big and cast out into the cold as the world grows to be better off without him. I want to see his world collapse around him the same way he threatened
to destroy ours and I want him to feel as helpless as we did as little by little he eroded the freedoms and liberties of the American people and destabilised the world stage allowing hate and bile to take root as "the
I don't want him to die, I want him to SUFFER.
"Look what you made me do."
If the Democrats weren't showing sympathy for the poor migrants then they wouldn't encourage the sadists working at ICE. So this is the Dems fault.
Secret service protection ends after death, so we all ought to be free to piss on his grave.
I\m surprised children didn't start dying the first couple of months trump went in to office. only when the media started lambasting him on his immigration policies rather than muh russia.
Are you implying that the media have been lying about the deaths of children? I'd watch my words if I were you, also there's proof that Manafort actively collaborated with agents of a hostile foreign power. If you know anything about your own treason laws:
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
Manafort deliberately gave away sensitive information to own the libtards. The extent to which he gave it out alone qualifies him to be hanged, but that would be too much of an escape for the likes of him. Let him slowly rot in his own juices behind bars until the end comes.
I gave this guy the benefit of the doubt but I'm pretty sure he's just another alt of that one troll that wouldn't stop making alts
