In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, Vice President Mike Pence revealed that “of course” the White House has a plan to reunite families. However, he refused to discuss any details of the plan.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who serves as the chair of the Homeland Security Committee, said that he’s upset with President Donald Trump’s administration.

“If they’ve got a process, they’re not revealing it to me. These are human beings,” Johnson said.

Pence said that he talked to Sen. Johnson but didn’t reveal what all was discussed, or what the plan is.

Last week, a federal judge demanded that the administration reunite families with the children, but the administration said that they don’t have the ability to do it on the timeline.

Pence focused instead on the families coming across the border illegally.

When asked about the Supreme Court appointee, Pence confessed that his focus is to overturn Roe v. Wade, which many Republicans have claimed Democrats are fear-mongering about the high Court overturning the law.

Trump's supporters have already gone after the report saying that it vindicated the president because there was no mention of Michael Cohen or Russia anywhere in the New York Times bombshell report.

Breitbart editor-at-large Joel Pollak celebrated the news and claimed, without evidence, that the taxes must have come illegally from the IRS. The personal tax returns did show, however, that Trump made an absurdly large amount of money from handling the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow.

Tony Schwartz, who co-authored The Art of the Deal, explained that President Donald Trump is not only the worst businessman he's also the "biggest tax fraud in IRS history."

Speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper on Sunday in the wake of a New York Times bombshell report, Schwartz accused the president of "running a criminal enterprise."

He noted that it was discouraging to hear political commentators say that they don't think that this news will impact the election because his supporters won't consider it a big deal.

The Times report walks through the $300 million that Trump got from his father starting as young as three years old so that his father could hide money much in the same way the president does now. Some of the money he "inherited" it is now known Trump stole from his brother's daughter, Mary Trump.

President Donald Trump had no idea that the New York Times was about to drop a bombshell report revealing his taxes for the past two decades and the lies he's been telling about how much he's worth and made over the years.

Not only is Trump being caught as a self-described billionaire with nearly $500 million in debt, but he has also been writing off millions in expenses that are actually payments to support his children or for personal expenses like hair and makeup, vacations, golf outings and more.

When asked about the report, Trump quickly shouted it down as "fake news," but reporters pressed him facts revealed in the report like how he has dodged paying his taxes, funneled money to people he then writes off as an expense or for services.
