∴ Despicable Donald

A tweet by Donald Trump

An appalling lie from Donald Trump obfuscating his own administration’s culpability for separating children from their families as they illegally cross the US border, and the 20% of them who have gone missing.

This policy is not the work of Democrats or the United States Congress. It is a policy decision implemented by the Trump administration itself, publicly announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions this year. Donald Trump is directly responsible for it.

Whatever has happened to those missing children is on him. His decency and fitness for the office he holds are belied by his willingness to publicly lie about the facts leading to their disappearance, despite the wealth of information disproving him.

In general, though not exclusively, Trump was swept into office on the backs of middle-aged and older white voters, both men and women. How much responsibility do you bear?
