    Using female pain for political gain

    On Tuesday, President Donald Trump addressed the nation in a last-ditch effort to persuade Americans that our southern border is under siege. Of particular focus in his appeal was the high risk of sexual assault migrant women face during their journey to the U.S.

    “One in three women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico,” the president claimed. “Women and children are the biggest victims, by far, of our broken system.” The president doubled down on this talking point during a visit to Texas on Thursday, claiming criminals attempting to enter the United States illegally kidnap and restrain women along the way. “They drive, they just go where there’s no security, fencing or walls of any kind, they just make a left into U.S. and they come in and they have women tied up,” the president said. “They have tape over their mouths, electrical tape. Powerful stuff. Not good” ...

    The president’s apparent concern for the plight of women seeking asylum in the United States is curious considering his actions, past and present. It’s difficult to believe that the man who called Mexicans rapists and who last year enacted a family separation policy that forcibly removed over 2,000 children from their parents truly seeks to aid the estimated six in 10 migrant women who are sexually assaulted during their journey to the United States. Indeed, while the journey is often harrowing, many women seeking asylum are fleeing sexual violence in their countries of origin. Despite this, in September the U.S. government made it much harder for such women to seek protection, with then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions ruling that domestic abuse or gang violence were not grounds for asylum ...

    So, according to the Democrats/liberals, pointing out that leaving the border open and encouraging people to immigrate illegally leaves women vulnerable to being raped is "using female pain for political gain"

    BUT

    DEMOCRATS/LIBERALS leaving the border open KNOWING that women WILL BE RAPED is OK and NOT "using women for political gain".

    1. Are there no depths this person will not descend into? If he goes any lower, perhaps...

    he will be in the hell he deserves.
    There are no depths the Democrats will not descend to if they think it gets them more power. And they will always blame Republicans for what THEY THEMSELVES do.

    It's the only comment. I think even the Dummies see the idiocy when they claim this.

    Ya know, if Trump gets "political gain" by taking measures that reduce "female pain" - in this case, reduces rape and sexual assault - that sounds rather good to me.
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    BIG CHEETO Is Watching You!

    Note to "Warpy" and "shockey80": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!
