    Trump just can’t be bothered to think his choices through. In his own mind he can do no wrong, so he disregards all human decency and then has to back pedal when it blows up in his face.
    This is no way to run a country. We need a president who cares more about the nation than they do about themselves. Trump can’t think of any one’s interests but his own.

    • @Reid Cinnamon Who cares what I choose to call anyone, point is, how’s it in America’s interest to be paying for the medical services of foreign nationals?

      @Claudia r Heaven forbid u should have a family member or an acquaintance who falls in love or deeply cares for an Hispanic. And I doubt that u would work doing what some hispanics do to earn money just to eat. We were a country where everyone was proud of . We still r proud of in most part. Now we r a joke to the world. This president has only brought misery, hate, cruelty and especially racism to all of us. Get out of here with ur prejudice , hateful comments. Go to Fox News where ur racism is all the talk. PENDEJA!

    Xenophobic Whack-A-Mole from a Whack-A-Doodle

  3. that thing he did to sick kids was even worse the stealing them away from their mommy’s and putting them in cages

  4. Thank you Rachel, for such in-depth information showing the truth.

  5. Trump-vile excuse for a human being!

  6. when the law keepers are criminals, the most vulnerable and easily exploited groups are targets of the psychopath in government, the rest to come later

    • Squeaky Vegan : And, when the education levels are so low, in so many states, the most vulnerable are the ones who become me supporters of their enemy

    THIS POLICY is straight out of the STEPHEN MILLER TORTURER’S MANUAL!
    Even the “apparent” reversals are part of his playbook!!
    REMEMBER: Oh, we cannot separate babies from their parents,
    OK, so we take out the parents – just don’t touch the kids… O M G !!!!

  8. He won’t get re-elected.

      @Cali Marie U poor thing. U need mental help. Cause all trumpsters r in need of help. Especially when it comes down to racism. Go take ur pills girl.

      @Martha Soledad We need no “help” on “racism”, thank you…….

      We have absolutely no problem ignoring you about it……

      Thank you very much….

      @Geddy Schacher Ur welcome sweetie. I can see I hit a nerve. Take care!

  9. Native Americans & African medicine helped save the lives of thousands of ‘illegal’ settlers, then those same settlers turned around and committed genocide and enslaved their saviours for 400 years

    • Clueless. Indians were fighting each other for land and power until someone stronger came along and fought for the same thing. Africans were sold by their own families…look it up. Where would they be now if not for this great nation?

    • Lots of them would be ancestors to many

    • @Cali Marie seriously? I know I subjugated you, sold you, murdered you and enslaved you, but things could have been worse If I would have left you to goven yourselves. So just let it go and be happy. I are you kidding me.

  10. The ideals and morals that a country ascribes to uphold should be more important in law than those running a government would wish them to be for their own purposes.

  11. Where are all these so called Pro life advocates. Where’s Ivanka and Melania. “(((crickets)))”

  12. When a nation allows a well-known sexual predator to become the pedophile-in-chief, it shouldn’t come as a surprise having to witness the implementation of state-sponsored child trafficking and child abuse policies. The question should be: “what are we willing to do to stop it?” Afraid we all know the answer by now.

    More proof that Conservatives have no Souls.

  14. Trump hates America so much, it’s hardly surprising he’s hating on foreigners . . . WTF is WRONG with the GOP? . . . Smh

  15. There’s many more similar situations being done by EVIL Trump and republicans who relish carrying out their heartless EVIL.

  16. I wonder when Einstein Visa Barbie has to return to Slovenia 🤔

    Just goes to show, Trump is a liar, his supporters are liars because they said ooh no it’s just illegal immigrants.. Yea ok.. Doesn’t seem that way to me with all of these policies…

  18. Kicking sick people when they’re down is the height of depravity.

  19. Please, please, please…Do not look at this as simply an immigration issue. We, Americans, dropped the ball in our committment to provide “the best” healthcare fifty years ago. We allowed ourselves to coaxed into the comfort of a system that we were already used to. People worked for a company good enough to provide “health insurance benefits” that were paid in part or completely by the employer. The employer gained loyalty by providing the “benefit”, by loss of insurability under “pre-existing disorder clauses” that prevented workers from changing jobs, and frequently employees were unaware, until it was too late, of the huge coverage gaps and inadequacies in their policies. It was better when a larger percentage of the workforce had unions working on their side to make certain that employees got the best insurance package that could be negotiated, but now, employees simply settle for what they can get. They’ve been given a pat on the head and told that “well, at least, you still get to pick your own doctor”. That was never the issue. The goal of an employer paid health insurance plan is to keep you healthy enough to continue working for the lowest cost possible. You are getting palliative care instead of the best care. America was one of the world’s sources for the best healthcare 50 years ago. The last I heard, America ranked 37. We simply must stop our Congressional pandering to big business interests instead of the wellfare of everyday Americans. We, Americans, must start insisting that all decisions impacting patients and health care directly and indirectly be reviewed by health care professionals. We have had too many judges, lawyers and administrators who have been making decisions outside their area of expertise.
