Bloomberg News:

>>President Donald Trump said Sunday that problems at U.S. border facilities have been exaggerated by the news media, and he demanded that Democrats in Congress change asylum laws to make it more difficult for migrants to claim refuge in the US.<<

“The Fake News Media, in particular the Failing @nytimes, is writing phony and exaggerated accounts of the Border Detention Centers,” Trump said on Twitter, a reference to the New York Times, which published a report Sunday describing squalid conditions at one Texas facility. “They are crowded (which we brought up, not them) because the Dems won’t change the Loopholes and Asylum.”

>>Trump also told reporters before returning to Washington from his golf club in New Jersey that the Times story was “a fabrication.” He said the administration will start showing detention centers to the news media to demonstrate the conditions. The Times stood by its story in a tweet on Sunday.<<

He also said reports of chickenpox and scabies were PHONY.

2. He can also bring Barron with him for the first day,

then have him separated and taken away to an unknown facility. Let Donald wonder and worry where his son is for a few weeks.

6. Probably not.

I doubt that he wanted for Melania to get pregnant to begin with. We can also rest assured that Donald never changed a diaper for any of his five children.

7. Plus if his boy could have an impairment as was 'put out there' somewhere along the line,

he's less than the perfection that * perceives his own sorry image to be.

8. Switch Barron with Ivanka. Now that would upset him.
