Donald Trump keeps changing his story after policies that abuse children and torture parents were exposed to the public. As usual, however, every story he comes up with is still a lie.
In a Trump Twitter rant of this magnitude, debunking the lies can become a full-time job. However, many of the lies are repeated so often that the public is already aware that he’s once again misleading the American people.
First, an IG report already determined that no political bias affected the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. While an IG report has not yet been released about the Russia investigation, it’s fairly obvious that text messages between Peter Stroyk and Lisa Page did not “stop” Trump from being elected and since neither informed voters of Russian attempts to hack the election to help Trump win, it’s also clear that their fears of a Trump presidency did not extend to affecting voters as they cast their ballots.
Second, crime in Germany is the lowest its been since 1992, and the increase in refugees fleeing to the country have not added any increase in crime rates.
Third, we are a country because we welcomed immigrants. Without the immigration of people when there was no border security to stop them coming in, Native Americans would never have been slaughtered by the thousands and marched of their own land to reservations.
Fourth, Democrats are not the problem and are not the only ones who can stop this. Trump can and he could do it today. No one wants crime to happen and undocumented immigrants are not creating an increase in crime rates.
Fifth, MS-13 make up one eight-thousandths of one percent of all undocumented immigrants in this country. The idea that welcoming immigrants to our country means adding to crime rates from gangs is just more dog-whistle racism meant to feed Trump’s racist fanbase.
Finally, Trump is not simply asking for Congress to change laws. He’s holding these children hostage for his own political agenda.
Fortunately, Twitter users are wise to Trump’s game. See some of their responses below:
