Trump: ‘You have to take the children away’

Reported by Washington Times:

President Trump said Tuesday that he’s compelled to ‘take the children away’ from parents at the border in order to follow through on prosecuting illegal border jumpers, and blamed reporters for being complicit with human smugglers carrying the children to the border.

A defiant president, speaking to a small business group, unloaded on his critics in both parties who have said they are looking to stop separation of parents from their children at the border under Mr. Trump’s zero tolerance policy.

He also said he’s going to make changes to the House GOP immigration bill that leaders had hoped to put on the floor later this week.

And he defended the zero tolerance policy, saying he doesn’t feel there’s any choice.

“You have to take the children away,” he said.
