President Trump is doing exactly what he said he would and no one can handle it. Even some Republicans are attempting to fold under enormous pressure.
But Trump is a leader and he knows when the going gets tough, the tough get going.
Which is exactly what he just did from the White House.
From Daily Caller:
“The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility. It won’t be. You look at what is happening in Europe and other places, we can’t allow it to happen to the United States. Not on my watch,” Trump declared.
The president’s comments come as his administration continues to criminally prosecute illegal immigrants resulting in family separation at the border. Trump urged Democratic lawmakers to accept to his immigration priorities in legislation which would end the practice at the border. The president also referenced the ongoing migrant crisis in Europe, which he also tweeted about Monday morning.

Look, Obama was very tough with how he dealt with the same issue. The detention centers were built by his administration after all.
The media won’t say that now, as they are all foaming at the mouth over Trump policies, but they should – at least it would diffuse this volatile situation until calmer heads prevail.
