Trump lost his heart and soul a long time ago

As America grapples with the moral dilemma of separating babies and children from their mothers and fathers, we must ask this question: Who is in charge? When a group of people are in power and are comfortable creating a system that is ripping babies and children from their parents, it is time to make a change.

“Under a new policy designed and enforced by the current administration and being led by the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security, immigrant families trying to enter the United States either illegally or through legal means, which includes presenting themselves at a designated U.S. Port of Entry and stating that they are seeking asylum, are separated, with the parents going to jail and the children being sent to foster care or more often government detention facilities,” said Hilary Shelton of the NAACP Washington Bureau. “This is occurring with alarming frequency.”

For some reason, no one in the Trump administration can explain why it is happening, but Trump and the Republicans are blaming the Democrats. Everyone knows it is immoral and un-American, and it is a new policy designed and enforced by the current administration.

There is no law in the books requiring the separation of children from their families. It is so easy to make excuses, when the administration has no moral direction, and America is one of the most powerful and richest countries on the planet.

With the invention of new technology and the internet, the world has gotten smaller, and humanity is calling out, “We are One.” Our leaders are morally and ethnically mistreating these immigrants, and Americans and citizens of the world must speak as one voice and condemn the Trump administration. This action is a crime, and it is time to litigate and bring justice to the victims.

With the election of Trump, values and principles have been replaced with lies, corruption and international criminals. There is something wrong when your campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, is jailed before his trial for tampering with government witnesses.

“Besides violating laws that require the disclosure of lobbying on behalf of foreign interests, the government alleges, Mr. Manafort laundered more than $30 million in income for Mr. Yankovych and his political allies” said Sharon LaFraniere, reporter for The New York Times. “As evidence that Manafort lobbied in the United States, prosecutors submitted a four-page memo that he wrote to Yankovych detailing his campaign to convince members of Congress, the State Department and the Western news media.”

Citing new obstruction charges, collusion and making false statements, Judge Amy Berman stated, “This is not middle school, and I can’t take away his cellphone,” so Manafort must go to jail for breaking the law. As more of Trump’s associates and personal longtime employees are charged with breaking the law, it must be difficult for the president to sleep at night.

Last week, the New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood filed a lawsuit against the Trump Foundation, which would charge the president and his children. The lawsuit alleges improper coordination between the charity and the president’s 2016 campaign.

“Our investigation reveals the Trump Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits regardless of their purpose or legality,” said Kenneth Lovett of the New York Daily News.

With Trump, everywhere you look, someone is either lying or breaking the law, and it did not start when he became the president.

There is a pattern with our president, and his fabricating and lying is cold and calculated, and somewhere along the way he lost his heart and soul. When children and babies are separated from their parents, he feels nothing.

I have starting calling my legislators. We can force our leaders to make the right decisions and stop the atrocities. Please join.
