Biafore: Trump, Capito, McConnell Hurt Children To Play Politics

Republican plan divide families for political gain backfires

CHARLESTON, WV — Today, West Virginia Democratic Party chair Belinda Biafore issued the following statement on the Republican plan to needlessly divide families:

“Trump, Capito, and McConnell can’t reverse the trauma that’s been caused to the children ripped apart from their families and forced to live in a cage. They played politics with children and it totally backfired.

“I don’t know how Senator Capito, a mother and grandmother, could be so spineless when it comes to standing up for basic decency for young children. Spineless Shelly allowed politics to separate children as young as three months old from their parents.

“The ice-cold hearts of Trump, McConnell and Capito are out of step with West Virginia’s families who saw through the political games and knew it was cruel to separate children from their parents on day one.

“It still remains to be seen if any these three will publicly apologize to these innocent children.”
