As more stories come to light about immigrant children being taken from parents at the border, Trump blames his administration’s policy on Democrats

About three weeks ago, on May 7, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new “zero tolerance” policy at southern border. “If you smuggle illegal aliens across our border, then we will prosecute you,” Sessions said at the time. “If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you,” he continued. “And that child may […]

Trump, circling the wagons, forces out McMaster, and brings in John “The Mustache of Doom” Bolton, a man who has called for the bombing of North Korea and suggested that Obama was behind the Russian hacking of our election… The end is near.
