Compassion hard to find in U.S. leadership

What has the country come to? Almost every day we are being lied to.

Republicans say they are compassionate. If they vote for congressmen and senators that back the policies of President Donald Trump, they are lying to you.

Do you agree that children should be taken from their families? Some are being placed in cages; are some being sold? The ones that are responsible claim they do not know where all of them are being held. Is this compassion?

Where is the compassion for our country? Donald Trump, with the help of his party, has alienated our friendly countries, and has lined up with our country’s enemies: Russia, China, North Korea, and don’t forget where the terrorists were from that blew up the World Trade Center.

If the Republican senators and congressmen back the policies of Donald Trump, they are also friends of our enemies. They believe it is OK to break up families, and put children, some only months old, in cages.

Are they compassionate? I don’t think so.

This is my opinion, and I don’t like being lied to.
