BREAKING— President Trump said this morning that he will sign an Executive Order today to end family separations amidst border crisis.
POTUS has said he will sign an executive order today to end family separations. He said in the cabinet room: “We’re going to be signing an executive order in a little while… We’ve got to be keeping families together.” At the end of remarks from POTUS, VPOTUS and others in the cabinet room, reporters shouted questions about the border separations.
POTUS said: “We’re looking to keep families together. Very important. We’re going to be signing an executive order. We are also going to count on Congress, obviously, but we are signing an executive order in a little while. We’re going to keep families together but we still have to maintain toughness or our country will be overrun by people, by crime, by all of the things that we don’t stand for and that we don’t want.
“The president added:”So I’m going to be signing an executive order in a little while before I go to Minnesota but, at the same time, I think you have to understand, we’re keeping families together but we have to keep our borders strong. We will be overrun with crime and with people that should not be in our country.”
