Democrats' rush to blame Trump for kids in cages backfires
President Trump taunted Democrats on Tuesday for mistakenly sharing photos of immigrant children being held in cages at detention centers during the Obama administration, saying they were trying to make “us look bad.”You can see the images the Democrats were sending at the link above.
“Democrats mistakenly tweet 2014 pictures from Obama’s term showing children from the Border in steel cages. They thought it was recent pictures in order to make us look bad, but backfires,” he posted on Twitter.
He called on Democratic lawmakers to work with their Republican colleagues on building a wall and increasing security at the Mexican border.
“Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country … Bipartisan Bill!,” he said.
The photos of the youths lying on a mat inside a wire cage began appearing online over the weekend after reports said the federal government “lost track” of nearly 1,500 immigrant children at the end of 2017.
