    Title says it all. If the Dems were to blame all along for not ending this policy, how did Trump stop it? Trump supporters, please tell us how.

    Because there is only 1 president, and he issued an executive order. Not like senate Minority leader can issue an executive order.

    And should 45 be impeached now that he is breaking the law that you've been arguing that he has to follow?

    I'm sure some loon on the left will say he should be impeached.

    But he's now breaking the law as you've been arguing in multiple threads.

    But he said he couldn't do it and not stopping was the Dems fault for not making a deal. So what changed? How come he couldn't stop it all along, he said he couldn't, did he lie?

    Repubs like Sanders and the head of DHS and posters here said that the president can't stop this because its the law to separate the kids. How can he be above the law and stop it now?

    Are you kidding? In speeches both Trump and his cabinet said only congress can change the law.

    But he said he couldn't do anything until congress acted!

    Congress did act! Democrats rejected it.

    In short, he "fixed" a problem he created. He must be so pleased with himself.

    Especially with that circle-jerk of a meeting he held with the press present before he signed.

    You're wasting your (digital) breath with this guy, or most Trumpsters for that matter. Anything he does or says is okay with them, no matter how vile, deceitful or self-contradictory.

    You aren't answering the question. Trump said HE couldn't do anything about it but he just did. So why did he say that?

    Trump said it and folks like Videomanmac insisted Trump wasn't lying.

    All the times you supported the argument that he was following laws passed by Democrats before his flip flop. If he was following the law by separating children, that it would seem to follow by your argument that he is breaking the law by not separating children.

    You won't win this one. He's in some serious denial.

    He really had no choice... once the MSM paraded out those 2014 pics from Obama’s administration, claiming they were from Trump’s administration.

    Executive order it had to be... after all, who knows what they’ll try next.

    Love it. He separates these children, falsely blames the separation of children from their families on the Democrats, his base hears this over and over so they obviously believe it, and then he issues an executive order coming to the rescue of all those poor children.

    It's brilliant I tell ya. He creates the problem, blames it on somebody else and then takes credit it for fixing it. Anybody that cant see past any of this is.... well.... stupid.

    But, but, but Obama first said that he couldn’t do anything to help the DACA kids, and then later turned around and signed an executive order to do just that.

    This is about Trump and his lies. Although I understand why you might want to whine about Obama to deflect.

    Obama who? Isn't Trump President at the moment? Does Obama's actions justify Trump's actions? Obama did it so it's ok for Trump to do it? Crazy way of thinking.

    I can never understand why people always give examples of what the other party did as a way to justify the actions of the current party.
