Halsey Calls Out Insensitivity of Ivanka Trump in ‘Sunday Morning’ Tweet

Halsey brings up the nearly 1,500 immigrant children lost by the Office of Refugee Resettlement in response to Ivanka Trump posting a photo of herself and her child on Twitter.

Timing is everything. Earlier today, Ivanka Trump posted a photo of herself and her child with the hashtag #SundayMorning.

The tweet was immediately met with responses referencing a recent report that Steven Wagner, acting assistant secretary for the Administration for Children and Families, revealed to a Senate subcommittee that the Office of Refugee Resettlement couldn’t account for nearly 1,500 immigrant children over the last three months. How could Ivanka proudly share a touching moment with her baby in light of news that her father’s administration essentially lost 1,500 kids pulled away from their parents? Halsey acknowledged the poor timing of her tweet, including a nice touch where she said, “Fuck your #SundayMorning." 

Put pressure on the Democrats to end the horrible law that separates children from there parents once they cross the Border into the U.S. Catch and Release, Lottery and Chain must also go with it and we MUST continue building the WALL! DEMOCRATS ARE PROTECTING MS-13 THUGS.

Of course, Donald Trump has tried to blame anyone and everyone but himself and his administration since the news surfaced.

No law requires this — separating parents and children is your administration’s choice.

Hundreds of kids as young as 18 months are in danger of suffering lifelong trauma.

We won’t let you shift the blame or use families as bargaining chips for your wall. #EndFamilySeparation https://t.co/ixRFgPgCq6

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) called out Trump’s “fake news,” adding that “separating parents and children is your administration's choice."
