Even after reversing his inhuman border separation policy yesterday and proving that he’d always had the power to change things (but refused to), Donald Trump just went nuts during a speech and continued to blame the entire thing on the Democrats.
In a speech to his cabinet at the White House, Trump became totally unhinged and whined about how the Democrats were obstructing him on the border crisis, preventing him from approving anything. Trump said:
Loopholes and our extremist open border Democrats. That’s what they are, extremist, open border Democrats. You’ll see tapes of unguarded borders. If people penetrate our borders, we must get them out of our country. All of a sudden it’s a big con job and in the meantime, our people are suffering because of the Democrats.”
This of course, is false. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) has stated that there are currently about 240 votes for a bipartisan bill to fix the border issues, and that dozens more votes were expected in the Senate. The problem, however, lies in the Republican Party (as usual). Hoyer said that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) won’t allow voting on the bill because Trump won’t sign it.
Trump continued his temper tantrum, trashing previous administrations. In a statement that sounded like he could have been describing his own White House, Trump said “every time they make a rule or regulation it makes things worse.”
Trump is clearly counting on the fact that some people may not know that the policy to rip children away from their parents and keep them in cages was something that the Trump administration came up with. Trying to pin this on his predecessors (especially former POTUS Barack Obama),Trump said:
They don’t care about the children, they don’t care about the injury, they don’t care about the problems.”
Then of course, Trump’s true colors came through as he went full racist and accused migrants of being drug dealers and criminals, which is reminiscent of his racist comments at the beginning of his presidential campaign. Trump said:
They’re drug traffickers. They’re human traffickers. They’re coyotes. I mean, we’re getting some real beauties. Mexico is doing nothing to us except taking our money and sending us drugs.”
