Even Bill O'Reilly Knows 'Trump Will Not Win' if He Continues Taking Immigrant Kids Hostage

Former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly came out against President Donald Trump's policy of separating immigrant families at the border on Monday.


"The government should know how bad this looks and how innocent children are actually suffering," he tweeted. "That kind of scenario is unacceptable to most Americans as exemplified by former First Lady Laura Bush’s withering criticism.

"The Trump administration will not win on this one and it should reverse course today," O'Reilly concluded.

O'Reilly joins a chorus of prominent Republicans, including Laura Bush, in condemning the Trump administration's policy.

The administration is falsely claiming existing law and the Democrats are to blame for the policy it enacted.
