Trump has caved under the pressure of an avalanche of negative news about his new "zero tolerance" policy that separated children from their families at the U.S./Mexico border.
After blaming past administration, of course singling out President Obama, for the problem Trump signed an executive order he claims will keep migrant families together.
At the signing Trump claimed...
“We are going to keep the families together. I didn’t like the sight or the feeling of families being separated,"
Trump then signed the order saying "this is going to make a lot of people happy" glowering as he did.
Trump who has, as recently as last night, claimed the policy of family separation had been implemented by the Democrats and that only they could reverse it decrying that he could not do so with an executive order... like the one he signed today.
It still remains to be seen not only what the exact text of Trump's executive order is but how his administration plans to reunite the some 2,400 children who sit in what they refer to as "tender age" holding facilities with the parents they were taken from under this new policy.
Trump will now jet off to in Duluth, Minn for a campaign style rally. It will be interesting to see how he chooses to spin this 180 degree turnaround from yesterday where it appeared he had dug his heels in on his new policy of child separation.when he still viewed this issue as "a winner".
