Requesting asylum is not illegal yet Trump closed the border to legal asylum seekers. This including families with small children who are starving and weak, who under Trump’s orders, have been attacked with tear gas.
The media, in tandem with Trump on this, is calling the slow progression of these suffering starving people with toddlers, people who are grouped together for their own protection in “a caravan” of several months in duration, “storming the border”.
Remember this was his fear mongering narrative during the November elections. The story was no longer useful afterwards and was put on a shelf until another distraction was needed. Trump doesn’t really care about these people.
Now Trump orders the use of tear gas against those families “storming the border” to create another crisis to distract us.
You know Trump likes immigrants if they’re white: his mother came over as a maid, 2 of his wives immigrated and married citizens in order to stay, and his grandfather was a draft dodger who emigrated from Germany in order to avoid mandatory military service. Draft dodging runs in the family. Grandpa Trump made his fortune by operating brothels in mining towns. Yes he was a pimp and a coward.
Trump’s needs to distract to the media. Distract from what? His imploding world. Pick a story:
The federal government’s own report, the 4th Annual Climate Assessment, warns of the growing impact of climate change on our planet. We are in the midst of a crisis.
The current rate of the accelerating rise of the sea level is approximately 3 mm annually.
And what’s this? Trump is doing Putin’s bidding:
Russia opens fire on Ukrainian navy ships
in Kerch Strait near Crimea, one of them damaged. This in addition to Russia’s relentless political and economic attacks against Ukraine, which they hope will result in the Ukraine’s return assent to Putin’s rule.
Mueller’s investigation will be ‘devastating’ for the president:
Donald Trump might be the stupidest President ever
Donald Trump ranked worst president in US history by nearly 200 political scientists
Traitor Trump’s legacy, and that of the enabling GOP, will be one of abuse toward migrant children, and the cataclysmic destruction of the planet for their own personal gain.
