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.
