Information Leaked From The White House Following Kirstjen Nielsen’s Resignation, Trump Furious

President Donald Trump‘s policy on immigration is easily the most embarrassing and horrifying thing about American politics today. He was elected to the office of President of the United States and leader of the free world on a populist platform which was fundamentally based on racist and xenophobic immigration policies. He responded to a terror attack by an Islamist extremist by insisting that America should ban all Muslims from entering the country. His key campaign pledge was to build a Border Wall along the United States’ southern border with Mexico to prevent illegal immigrants entering the country, which he qualified by shouting that “Mexicans are rapists”. In other words, this administration is not at all ashamed of the thoroughly racist roots of its attitude towards immigration.
Easily the most controversial and publicized aspect of that immigration policy from the last two years is the instance of taking away the children of illegal immigrants and keeping them in cages within government facilities, separate from their families. Of course, this generated a huge amount of media and public scrutiny, to the point that Trump was eventually forced to back down and reverse the policy. But the person behind that policy was not Trump himself, but Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen. Now, in a shock move, Nielsen has resigned from the Trump administration. But what will hurt Trump the most about all of this is the damaging information that emerged as she was on her way out:
In California on Friday, a senior administration official tells CNN, Trump told border agents he wanted them to stop letting people cross the border, despite the fact that Central American asylum seekers according to US law can do so. Nielsen “believed the situation was becoming untenable with the President becoming increasingly unhinged about the border crisis and making unreasonable and even impossible requests,” a senior administration official tells CNN.
That’s right. Nielsen, the person who was literally behind the kids in cages policy, thinks that Trump is becoming “unhinged”. It is hard to imagine a more damning indictment of an individual. And sadly for us, that particular individual somehow still rules over us from the Oval Office. It is about time the Congressional committees, which are now largely controlled by Democrats, started investigating properly these kinds of allegations. If Trump is “unhinged” even by those insanely racist standards, something needs to be done urgently, for the sake of our great nation.
