Fox News host Shepard Smith on Monday blasted the Trump administration for arguing that migrant children did not need to have access to soap and toothbrushes.

The Fox News host noted that Vice President Mike Pence was questioned on Sunday about the lack of basic amenities at detention facilities holding migrant children.

“Just last week, a Justice Department attorney argued that they don’t necessarily need to provide migrant children with soap and toothbrushes for them to be safe and sanitary. Soap and toothbrushes not necessary for safe and sanitary conditions,” he remarked, before showing a clip of the lawyer in federal court.
