Seemingly incapable of any sense of empathy, Trump has chosen to politicize on Twitter the deaths of two young children this month while they were in the Border Patrol’s custody. Seven-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquin died on Dec. 8 in New Mexico, two days after being taken into CBP custody. Eight-year-old Felipe Gómez died in New Mexico on Christmas Eve. On Saturday, Trump wrote: “Any deaths of children or others at the Border are strictly the fault of the Democrats and their pathetic immigration policies that allow people to make the long trek thinking they can enter our country illegally. They can’t. If we had a Wall, they wouldn’t even try! The two...children in question were very sick before they were given over to Border Patrol. Border Patrol needs the Wall and it will all end. They are working so hard; getting so little credit!"
