Trump: Officials doing 'fantastic job' with detained migrant children given 'circumstances'

Source: The Hill



BY RACHEL FRAZIN - 06/23/19 09:17 AM EDT

President Trump said in an interview that aired Sunday that his administration is going a "fantastic job" with detained migrant children, given the "circumstances."

Trump on NBC's "Meet the Press" blamed Democrats when host Chuck Todd brought up the fact that the administration cut recreation and English classes at shelters for migrant kids.

"We're doing a fantastic job under the circumstances," Trump said. "The Democrats aren't even approving giving us money. Where is the money? You know what? The Democrats are holding up the humanitarian aid."

Todd also suggested that the children were being used politically, and the president once again knocked the other side.

1. "...given the circumstances"...He created the circumstances.

Idiot in Chief.

Does he EVER project into the future to see how his decisions will affect people? What a bumbling fool.

2. Which probably really means

More bad news about how there's more dead then reported , and even worse conditions . trump always puts out the opposite of the truth just before something bad about him becomes reported , and its one of his tells, and patterns. He knows how bad they're being treated, and being abused, and dying, but like always he'll claim he didn't know, when he did. He almost always denies everything that implicate his failures, and will with this too. trump and the gop are abusing children.

4. I object!

"We're doing a fantastic job under the circumstances," Trump said. "The Democrats aren't even approving giving us money. Where is the money? You know what? The Democrats are holding up the humanitarian aid."

$700 per day per child is not enough when a US prisoner has full amenities on $72 per day per prisoner. The pResident thinks we are idiots.

6. Given the circumstances?

That is the criteria? That should never be the criteria in something that is controllable. After rapid flooding? For the moment that would be OK but that moment should be for the moment not long term.

So he thinks that given the circumstances is OK for immigrant children. Who would have guessed that? Major asshole and that is the best thing I can say about him.

We need him gone so we can be humane humans again. Or at least opt for that rather than the "whatever" we are doing now.

12. Given the fact the policy is by definition a human rights violation, and the effort is

vastly underfunded, detainees are lucky to have a place to lie down on a piece of concrete. That's what Trump means by "the circumstances."
