Trump: An honorable man making America great
President Trump is doing everything he possibly can do to make America great again.
So why does he have so much opposition?
His intentions are honorable, and his tactics are apparently spot on, since every thing he has attempted for the betterment of this country has worked.
He has been criticized for everything he has done and/or attempted to do. He has been criticized for using Twitter, when that was the only path open to him to get his message across.
The newspapers seem incapable of writing a movie review without criticizing the president.
You speak of him as if he is a dictator, and way too many have taken up the chant.

Caged kids: It's their parents' fault
The media and the left are swift to blame every American societal woe on President Trump.
But occasionally, they should scratch down to the root and place blame where warranted.
Travelers from the south with children who are attempting to cross America's borders illegally know full well that the United States has civil restrictions against illegal entry, and also know through the news that parents and children can be separated and detained.
So who's really to blame for immigrants coming illegally and being separated from their families?
Dig through the leftist hype and point the blame where applicable.
Responsible, conscientious parents should not knowingly defy our laws and put themselves and their children in this unpleasant situation.

Caged kids: It's only fair
Are people saying the children of immigrants here illegally should be treated better than the children of permanent residents taken into custody?
Children of permanent residents taken into custody are sent to foster care.
Before you start protesting, suggest reasonable options and be willing to put your money where your mouth is.
Stand for all children, including before birth
Hillary Clinton is quoting scripture about children coming here illegally, yet where does she stand with her support for pregnancies being ended in the mothers' wombs at any and every stage of life?
And that goes for Laura Bush also — rejecting our laws against coming into our country illegally. yet supporting abortion.
Ladies, you can’t stand for people breaking our laws with chidren, but think it’s not a problem to kill in the womb.
—Sandra Lewis, Joshua
Stand for all children, including after birth
I don't understand why every so-called Christian is not out protesting.
Some of you do not believe in abortions no matter the circumstances.
Yet you are silent when innocent children are taken from their parents and placed in warehouses and tents?
Caged kids: Wrong and not debatable
Few policy issues are simple.
Americans do not put children in cages.
There are many things open to debate in the area of immigration policy.
This isn’t one.
Caged kids: This isn't Reagan's America
This is a dark day in American history. We are veering away from the shining city on the hill that President Reagan envisioned us to be.
Before we are Republicans or Democrats, or even Americans or citizens of another country, we are all human.
I cannot imagine that you think ripping children from their parents is a noble thing.

Caged kids: America is in trouble
lf we can’t all agree that separating mothers and children who come to our country is cruel and something that we should reject, then we are in trouble as a nation.
Caged kids: Wrong is wrong
This morally bankrupt negotiation stunt to win funding for the absurd border wall has taken us closer to losing our hard-fought status as the world's most admired nation.
Senators Cornyn and Cruz and Congressman Barton: you must insist these families are reunited and this appalling policy suspended or be complicit in this outrage.
Wrong is wrong.
Caged kids: Change the law
If tearing families apart is what “the law” requires, then the law needs to be changed immediately.
Our immigration system is broken and in need of repair — something Congress has repeatedly failed to accomplish.
Caged kids: Who'll stand up?
This is cruel treatment and the children will remember this all of their lives.
What is wrong with our country?
—Lois Campbell, Hurst
Caged kids: They're hostages
Trump is holding kids hostage for money to build the wall.
This is immoral.
