President Donald Trump reversed his position on sending asylum seekers to sanctuary cities on Saturday.
At 7:30 p.m. in Washington, DC, Trump argued that The New York Times story reporting he was considering sending asylum seekers to sanctuary cities was “knowingly wrong on almost every fact.”
At 8:08 p.m. — thirty-eight minutes later — Trump threatened to do exactly what he’d just denied considering.
At 9:47 p.m. Trump again tweeted his threat.
The New York Times Sanctuary Cities/Immigration story today was knowingly wrong on almost every fact. They never call to check for truth. Their sources often don’t even exist, a fraud. They will lie & cheat anyway possible to make me look bad. In 6 years they will be gone……..# p #5_10 # ad skipped = true #

Democrats must change the Immigration Laws FAST. If not, Sanctuary Cities must immediately ACT to take care of the Illegal Immigrants – and this includes Gang Members, Drug Dealers, Human Traffickers, and Criminals of all shapes, sizes and kinds. CHANGE THE LAWS NOW!# p #7_10 # ad skipped = true #

Just out: The USA has the absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities. We hereby demand that they be taken care of at the highest level, especially by the State of California, which is well known or its poor management & high taxes!# p #9_10 # ad skipped = true #
