President Trump is not shy about calling out his opponents — even on a national stage AS the President. We’ve seen that time and time again with his barrage of slams on the liberal-controlled mainstream media.
It’s especially important that he keeps it up, as the liberal media beats this child separation issue to death, even stooping so low as to producing false reports and very misleading narratives.
President Trump has called the Democrats out for spreading “phony stories” in order to push a political agenda regarding the border crisis.
The media, in concert with the Democrats, have spread lies, half-truths, and false information regarding the border crisis. Their tactics reached an abysmal apex on Thursday when it was revealed that their iconic photo of a crying girl obtained at the border was a fraud of fake news.
Even after President Trump signed an executive order preventing families from being separated, the Left still expressed outrage because it meant that children would be kept in detention centers. At the end of the day, the Left wants people who cross the border illegally to just walk free into the United States with no penalty and no deportation. For this, the president has called them out on their lies.
“We cannot allow our Country to be overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats tell their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it will help them in the elections,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
The president went on to rightly point out that President Obama’s administration detained families illegally crossing the border and nobody raged against the machine back then.
“Obama and others had the same pictures, and did nothing about it!” he wrote.
Indeed, President Obama’s detention of illegals was so egregious that leftists began circulating photos of illegal immigrants housed in cages alongside their parents thinking they were under President Trump.
Wow, the Democrats are so dishonest! Now that Trump's Exec. Order keeps families together, the Dems are NOW shifting their attacks to "families" being "kept in cages". But they said NOTHING about Obama's "cages". Nothing. One of the countless detention center images from 2014. pic.twitter.com/VCRo9YnA0I

The president concluded by promising to maintain a “Strong Southern Border.”
We must maintain a Strong Southern Border. We cannot allow our Country to be overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats tell their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it will help them in the elections. Obama and others had the same pictures, and did nothing about it!
