Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday assured Fox News viewers that President Donald Trump is acutely sensitive to the plight of undocumented immigrant children that were separated from their parents by his own orders.
During an interview with Fox News’ Bill Hemmer, Giuliani said that Trump is working on some kind of “solution” that will keep families together while they await their immigration hearings.
“For the good of the country I take that statement I saw that the president has a solution in mind to move this thing forward,” he said. “Since I think he is very disappointed that the Democrats want to make this a political football. I think he thought he could get a comprehensive solution.”
Giuliani said that the president’s feelings are hurt by partisans who attack him because he is “not in favor of open borders and letting the MS-13 sneak in with everybody else.”
Giuliani closed by giving a personal testament to Trump’s deep well of emotional empathy.
“It’s a tragedy,” he said. “Nobody feels it more than Donald Trump, believe me.”

Conservative columnist blasts GOP as ‘partisan hacks for whom hypocrisy is second-nature’
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump once again ripped into The Squad, this time to undercut an emotional press conference in which Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MN) described the conditions her Palestinian relatives live under.
“Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears. I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long,” the president tweeted. “Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!”

‘They’re with me all the way’: Trump uses Log Cabin Endorsement as shield when asked about destroying LGBT rights
President Donald Trump has not publicly acknowledged the early endorsement he received late last week from the gay Republican group Log Cabin Republicans, but he was quick to mention it when asked about his record of destroying the civil rights of LGBTQ people.
Trump bragged, “they’re with me all the way, and I just got a big endorsement from the Log Cabin group,” during a Tuesday afternoon press gaggle, according to pool reports.
Convicted Cardinal Pell’s fate hangs on appeal
An Australian court will rule on George Pell's appeal against child sex abuse charges Wednesday, when the convicted cardinal could walk free or begin a new round in his protracted legal fight.
Once the Vatican's third-ranking official, 78-year-old Pell was sentenced this year to six years in jail for sexually assaulting two 13-year-old choirboys at a Melbourne cathedral in the 1990s.
After more than two months of deliberations, a three-judge appeals panel will hand down their decision.
Pell is the most senior Catholic convicted of child sex abuse, making his case and Wednesday's ruling a touchstone moment for believers and victims groups around the world.
