Trump pushes back over border separation

President Donald Trump tried to cast doubt on wrenching tales of migrant children separated from their families at the border, dismissing ‘phony stories of sadness and grief’ while asserting the real victims of the nation’s immigration crisis are Americans killed by those who cross the border unlawfully. Bombarded with criticism condemning the family-separation situation as a national moment of shame, Trump came back firing, sometimes twisting facts and changing his story but nonetheless highlighting the genuine grief of families on the other side of the equation. ‘You hear the other side, you never hear this side,’ said Trump, standing with a dozen of what he calls the ‘angel families’ who lost loved ones at the hands of people in the country illegally. He focused on the fact that young migrants separated from parents are likely to be reunited, unlike the victims of murders.
