Trump whines that Democrats aren’t paying ransom after he took immigrant kids hostage

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday lashed out at Congressional Democrats, whom he once again falsely blamed for his own administration’s immigration policies.

“Why don’t the Democrats give us the votes to fix the world’s worst immigration laws?” Trump asked. “Where is the outcry for the killings and crime being caused by gangs and thugs, including MS-13, coming into our country illegally?”

In fact, Republicans have majorities in both the House and the Senate and could pass immigration fixes without Democratic votes if they wanted to do so.

Additionally, it was the Trump administration that decided to separate children from their families as part of its “zero tolerance” immigration policy that criminally prosecutes parents if they illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border.

The administration has also started separating children from parents who are legally trying to claim asylum in the United States.

The Trump White House over the weekend released multiple, contradictory messages about its family separation policies. Trump blamed the Democrats for the policy, while aide Stephen Miller proudly stated that the policy was an administration decision. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, meanwhile, falsely claimed that the administration doesn’t have a policy of separating children from their families.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

on

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.
