Democrats and leftists complain about their own policy and refuse to fix it

President Trump has been going tit-for-tat- with Democrats in recent weeks over the current 'forced family breakup' policy in which children are separated from their parents if they try to enter the U.S. illegally

(INTELLIHUB) — For months now, Democrats and media leftists have complained about how cruel and ‘barbaric’ forced family breakups at the border are and have relentlessly hammered the Trump administration over the issue.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke out in a press conference on Thursday, in which she called the policy “barbaric” and made clear that it was the current policy of the Trump administration when in actuality the policy it that of the Dems.

“As a mother of five children and a grandmother of nine — i’m sure any parent here, mother or father, knows that this is barbaric,” Pelosi said. “This is not what America is but this is the policy of the Trump administration.”

In her presentation to the press, the rather aged-looking House Minority Leader made it sound as if the policy was a scheme “cooked up” by the Trump administration which Pelosi maintains doesn’t “have any idea of the impact on families and children.”

Pelosi’s crackbrained comments forced President Trump to fire out several tweets in which he points out how the policy in question is that of the Democrats and not that of the Trump administration itself.

“The Democrats are forcing the breakup of families at the Border with their horrible and cruel legislative agenda. Any Immigration Bill MUST HAVE full funding for the Wall, end Catch & Release, Visa Lottery and Chain, and go to Merit Based Immigration. Go for it! WIN!,” the President tweeted on Friday.

As a follow-up to Friday’s tweet, the Commander-In-Chief sent an additional Tweet out on Saturday in which he explained how the Democrats will have to work with Republicans if they want the law changed, putting the blame on Dems for their failure to cooperate on anything.

The President Tweeted: “Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change! This is why we need more Republicans elected in November. Democrats are good at only three things, High Taxes, High Crime and Obstruction. Sad!”

President Trump appeared on Fox and Friends Friday where he said Republican lawmakers are “willing to change it today” but said that the Democrats “just won’t work with us.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has said publicly that the law is necessary for the security of the nation.
