The Trump State Department on Tuesday promoted something that, in normal times, would be seen as harmless.


In the context of Trump's immigrant family separation policies, however, many people are finding it to be completely tone deaf.

Specifically, the State Department posted a link on its Twitter account to a chat session in which professionals would answer American citizens' questions about how to travel abroad with their children.

"Join our colleagues from @TravelGov for a Facebook Live event at 10:00 a.m. ET to ask your questions about traveling with kids and to hear their tips to make traveling with the whole family easier," wrote the State Department.

Many of Twitter users did not take kindly to this message and proceeded to heap scorn on the State Department for not considering the context of the current crisis facing immigrant children.
