John McCain is nipping at President Trump’s ankles over his zero tolerance immigration policy
The Arizona RINO Senator is known to repeatedly stab President Trump in the back.
But McCain fired off one attack on Trump that instantly caught him red-handed telling this massive lie.
Of all the Never Trump RINOs in the Senate, McCain is the most vocal champion of open borders and amnesty.
That put him in direct confrontation with Trump beginning in the GOP Presidential primary.
McCain – who lost in a humiliating blowout to Barack Obama because of his liberal views on guns, immigration and foreign policy – eventually withdrew his support for Trump after the Access Hollywood tape.
Trump won the GOP nomination – and the Presidency – because voters were fed up with politicians like John McCain who said one thing on the campaign trail and then voted another way in Congress.
A perfect example of McCain’s dishonor was his 2010 primary against a Tea Party challenger.
When McCain was facing a challenge from his right by J.D. Hayworth, McCain poured resources into a TV ad proclaiming his support for a border fence.
Of course once in office, McCain immediately signed on to Chuck Schumer’s doomed “Gang of Eight” amnesty legislation.
McCain’s habit of lying reared its ugly head again over the Trump administration’s zero tolerance immigration policy.
Liberal journalists and pro-amnesty politicians in both parties are falsely accusing the Trump administration of separating families at the border.
The truth is illegal alien families who show up at proper points of entry and request asylum remain together while they complete the process.
The Trump administration is holding fewer than 2,000 children in a converted Walmart where they have access to education and video games as well as three meals a day while their parents are being processed for entering the country illegally.
McCain – who is a key part of the Washington establishment that prioritizes illegal aliens over actual American citizens – lashed out at the President by echoing liberal, pro-amnesty talking points.
But McCain’s tweet once again revealed the fraudulent nature of his political career.
The candidate who once dubbed his campaign bus “The Straight Talk Express” is nothing more than a two-faced huckster.
In 2015, McCain sponsored a resolution calling for the exact same zero tolerance immigration policy put into place by the Trump administration.
“Arizona’s Yuma Sector has gone from being one of the busiest sectors for illegal immigration in the U.S. to one of the most secure thanks to the stepped-up efforts of our law enforcement officials under Operation Streamline.”
“Despite this success, the Obama administration continues to scale back important progress by ceasing to prosecute illegal border crossers. The citizens of Arizona cannot afford to lose the gains that have been made to secure the southern border, and I will not stop fighting to ensure that we have the best policies in place to keep our communities safe.”
Operation Streamline was a policy implemented by the Bush administration at certain parts of the border where illegal entries were prosecuted and children were separated from their parents.
But the truth of the matter is this is another example of the dishonesty that defines McCain’s career which primed the GOP electorate to support an outsider like Trump taking over the party.
McCain was flat out lying in 2015.
He only supported a zero tolerance policy because he was set to face a conservative primary challenger in 2016 and he knew there was no chance Obama would actually enforce immigration law.
McCain’s continued dishonesty on the topic of immigration is why the GOP base is so loyal to Trump.
The President has implemented his Make America Great Again agenda since taking office and its why he maintains such deep and strong support from the Republican base.
