Donald Trump’s harsh, cruel, and inhumane immigration policies have been a hot, albeit touchy subject as of late after it was revealed that thousands of innocent immigrant children are being detained in what can only be described as concentration camps at our southern border — tortured and starving without access to so much as clean water, a toothbrush, soap, or a blanket.
But Donald’s cruelty may have reached a new height today after he responded to a viral, gut-wrenching photograph of a 2-year-old migrant child and her father who drowned while attempting to cross the Rio Grande — the baby still tucked into the father’s shirt as they lay dead on the shore.
Speaking with reporters on the White House lawn before he boarded his comfy jet to depart for Japan, headed to the G20 Summit, Donald remarked on the sickening photograph that’s making its rounds all over social media and his words were as unsettling as ever:
“Well, that’s like I’ve been saying — if they fixed the laws, you wouldn’t have that.”
No. Just, no. Two lives were lost. Fuck you, Donald.
He didn’t stop there though. Because of course, he didn’t.
In a moment of sicking irony, Trump switched gear into claiming that, because the Democrats won’t allow him to put his insane, cruel policies into law, women are being raped and children are being used as slaves.
“Women are being raped on the journey up,” he claimed. “You have these caravans. Women are being raped. And one of the terrible things, children are actually being brought into slavedom if you look at what’s happening. The cartels and the coyotes. They’re getting rich because the Democrats refuse to change the loopholes. They refuse to change asylum. In one hour we could have it done. They want to have open borders and open border mean crime. And open borders mean drowning in the rivers, and it’s a very dangerous thing.”
I have no words.

He then pivots to talk about how “children are actually being brought into slavedom,” which he blames on Democrats. pic.twitter.com/teOUy075bX
