How Donald Trump Lied About Immigrant Children At The Debate


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Carol Anne Donohoe.

President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden during Thursday night’s second and final Presidential debate sparred on numerous issues including immigration. Only days earlier the story broke that lawyers ordered by a federal judge to reunite separated families could not locate the parents of 545 separated children. When asked about the horror of family separation at the debate, Trump lied saying coyotes and “bad people” brought the children as an excuse to enter the country and that children were being taken care of in wonderful conditions.
