Julián Castro hits Trump in campaign launch: 'A crisis of leadership'

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro took aim at President Trump while announcing his Democratic presidential bid on Saturday, saying the U.S. is facing a leadership "crisis."

Speaking to supporters in Texas, the former San Antonio mayor and Obama Cabinet official accused Trump of failing to uphold America's values with his policies on immigration and calls for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

"There is a crisis today – it’s a crisis of leadership. Donald Trump has failed to uphold the values of our great nation," Castro told hundreds of supporters in San Antonio.

"Yeah, we have to have border security," Castro added. "But there's a smart, and a humane way to do it. And there is no way in hell that caging children is keeping us safe."

Castro also rebuked the president's attacks on the press during his speech, thanking members of the media who attended the rally and calling the press "the friend of the truth" in America...........................
