Kellyanne Blames Dems for Politicizing Border Kids Deaths; Dana Bash: Isn’t That What Trump is Doing?


CNN’s Dana Bash and Kellyanne Conway collided with each other on Sunday over President Trump‘s politicalization of migrant children who’ve died at the U.S. southern border.

Amid the ongoing government shutdown and the news that two Guatemalan youths died this month in the custody of border security, Trump got on Twitter Saturday to say “Democrats and their pathetic immigration policies” are to blame for the deaths. As Conway and Bash talked about this on State of the Union, the White House special counselor argued that the president was making an “important” point, saying at one point “I don’t like some of the Democrats using these deaths as political pawns.”

“Isn’t that exactly what the president just did?” Bash responded.

“No,” Conway said. “The president is not doing that. The president does not want to come on a perilous journey to begin with. They are paying — now some of them are paying the ultimate price but many of them are paying these coyotes who don’t give a whit about human life.”
