    Kids in cages was a low point for the country

    It’s so bad that Amnesty International is working here in the US to improve conditions in these concentration camps.

    Amnesty International working in the US against the US (repub controlled) government. Take 10 seconds to think about that.

    • 4 more years of trump would mean full blown concentration camps

    • Thank god someone is.

    • Amnesty International does a lot of good work fighting against state sponsored oppression. Butt we shouldn’t be surprised – after all they are hoping to win oppressor of the year for all the effort they put into bullying their employees and they don’t want to be outshone by a government.

    • @Robert Shibatani International court is a sham.

    • @1017 That’s a stretch. Four years of Biden means endless waves of invasion to the US, lower quality of life for Americans due to competing use of resources, US sinking in debt. We will not be in the G7. We will be in G77 or G99.

  3. “They were so well taken care of,” said t’rump about the children he just permanently orphaned. 🙄

    • They were left sitting on concrete floors with mylar blankets being overseen by security people. Little children ripped from their parents. Disgusting.

    • Barbara Bretti | October 23, 2020 at 2:39 AM | Reply

      trump should be charged for all those kids he ripped out of their mothers arms! And the GOP and this Judge they are so busy voting for are supposed to be pro life! Pro life my foot! Disgusting human being no empathy !

    • all bullies have in common their all Ugly | October 23, 2020 at 2:50 AM | Reply

      @Barbara Bretti I say seized all the responsible assets and used it to the Fatherless kids schools programs

    • Not to mention killed!!

    • Y’all don’t realize that these children are unclaimed children. At this point, it’s basically an orphanage. Look into it before making ignorant comments.

    I want to know why Trump said that he will “come up “ with a great health care plan when he claims to already have one?

    • I noticed that aswell ..he either has one (which in 4yrs he hasn’t introduced) or he doesn’t.

    • Investigative Audit | October 23, 2020 at 2:56 AM | Reply

      Your answer is that he has been saying this for 4 years, and nothing happened. How can he have a great health care plan for common people, not in line with his business allies?
      He is only focusing on his own personal agenda and he is good at it!
      My investigation report– on this channel (“Conflict of Interest at its Historical Record”) on Trump and his family’s financial corruption and how his foreign policies were biased to promote his own businesses!!
      (PDF FORMAT of the report is liked in the ‘comments section’ of the video report)
      There are more of my investigation reports on Trump’s corruption and conspiracies on my channel.

      Kambyrs Quilts he lies

    • I think , right now trump is trying to open an insurance company. He’ll sign everyone, take money from the people and turn a hefty dollar amount. First in- the Radiologist he has on staff.

    • AfroSamurai215 | October 23, 2020 at 7:01 AM | Reply

      Or how about the part where he denied ever having a Chinese bank account, but then goes on to admitting that in fact he did ( he still has one 100% ) have a Chinese bank account.😶

      That was one of my favorite lies among the many lies he told during that whole debate.

  5. Personally, I prefer presidents who pay their taxes, who don’t call our service members losers/suckers, who don’t admire foreign dictators, and who don’t keep secret bank accounts in communist China. Now maybe I’m being too picky, but that’s just me.

    • @Sucks 2bwhite
      You had plenty of minorities to vote on.
      America is also a vast majority white sooooo learn to write you Winnie the Pooh honey sucker

    • How secret is a bank account that was listed on your tax return? After all, that is how you know about it. 😆

    • What Trump is saying is that he pays a lot of taxes because his businesses pay taxes. That is true. Taxation of individuals are not the same as corporate taxation. I wonder if Biden and his family paid taxes for the corruption millions they earned.

    • @my-name-is nobody You better take as many pictures as you can because if Biden wins, America will be forever changed, would look more pathetic than its shell of a self. Sadly we would be here. Vote Trump.

      @Ice Blue america is forever changed…and not in a good way..apparently those of the same ilk as ” “my stock portfolio and 401ks look real good..and that’s good enough for me..so what if 223,000 people are dead to keep my stocks in the black …their deaths is for the greater good of me, myself and other “wannabe 1% ers”
      So what’s this thing people have against racist bigot POtuS#45 lack humanity?…this isn’t the first time white men put the “other” in cages and took away parents. Right?

      “What trump is saying”?
      POtuS#45 isn’t saying anything about his dubious financial dealings…except he confides to you right?
      If you want a private life..you don’t run for public office.

  6. Well taken care of….that is a lie …..

  7. Let me just say this!! Trump claims the children were well taken care of !!! Oh was it only when the reporters were there for the Trump’s admin to have a photo op to justify their actions????
    And Trump keep questioning Biden on who build those cages!!! The point is not who built those cages but who do you put in those cages! Those innocent children were put behind bars at a young age, at no faults of theirs will be scarred in their whole entire life to come!! This is the most inhumane thing done by USA (The Trump Admin need to be held responsible to this)!

  8. lol US has a concentration camps and violated many human rights, but want accuse China, hypocrite to the max

    • @Max4Z obviously….but who put the children in there?

    • @Bruce Fale do u want me to send u the videos?

    • quan Brooklyn kid | October 23, 2020 at 4:25 PM | Reply

      China still have way more issues with human rights issues so please

    • I must be confused, I guess. So it’s okay if both of countries do it or not. Lolol, WTF is your point. One doing it doesn’t absolve the other, their both violating international law to great shame and disgust.

    • @U U what he’s saying is that the US should not throw rocks in glass houses. Obviously his point is you shouldn’t be hypocritical. In now way is he saying that concentration camps are ok if both countries are doing it. Have some coffee, it might clear the cobwebs.

  9. I think Trump confused those separated children with his many illegitimate children that he employs at his golf courses and hotels.

  10. Kimberly Morris | October 23, 2020 at 2:09 AM | Reply

    Trump said, “Good” regarding separation there at the very end. And so well taken of
    How can that be?
    They have no family.
    God only knows what type of situation those children are living in.

      “I think if this country gets any kinder or gentler, it’s literally going to cease to exist.”
      ― The Donald @ Playboy, March 1990

    • He said “go ahead” you lying twerps. Go watch it 10 times. He said “go ahead” to the moderator.

  11. Biden was consistent with his message tonight. Biden’s mission is to speak and work with the scientist to irradicate this deadly virus. Joe Biden was strong and clear with his responses, when asked by the moderator. Joe Biden showed empathy and compassion when speaking about the children that have been torn away from their kids. Biden said, “these kids are alone”. Biden is a man with integrity and decency and that cares about families.

    • Don’t you mean “eradicate”, as opposed to “irradicate”? I bet those kids are happy to be caged where they’re getting a decent meal.

    • Biden was better coached, better prepared since he took 4 days off to prepare while Trump was tired since he had to do a lot of campaigning. Anyway, in reality, fate has already written the election result as is the life of everyone.

    • @John Garner Having their own bed, going to classes to learn, new clothes, new shoes. It’s paradise.

    • That’s what I saw. Biden was fluent addressing the American people and his proposals on ending the current crisis.

    Rumph says, “Those children are so well taken care of.” He has NO IDEA how devastating it is to be separated from your Mom at an early age. They talked tonight about breast fed babies being taken from their moms. GOD! He has no right to be a president of ANYTHING!!!!!!.


    • @Leo M Doesn’t matter who built the cages. What matters is who used it. If Trump and his party and his followers felt it was wrong to build the cages, why did Trump Authorize a Zero Tolerance policy and USE those cages ?

    • Shawniemarie Moore | October 23, 2020 at 10:35 AM | Reply

      @Leo M He. Did. Not. Rip. Kids. Away.From.Parents!!
      Nor did Obama force detained women to get hysterectomies.
      But trump sure did!!!!

    • @Jarngus Ss They don’t know where to send these children. The majority of these children have not been claimed by ANYONE or they would be with their parents. At this point, it’s basically an orphanage.

    • @Jarngus Ss lmao so Obama never separated kids…… he deported 3.5 million people more than Trump or more than the last 5 presidencies combined

    I have zero respect for a man who does not care about children being separated from their parents. I can not believe he said “they are well taken care of”. In a cage??? Are they animals to him??? So so very evil👹

    • I do not care about politicians who condone parents who allow their children to be pawns, who tell all the lies they can to deceive others, who have children as immigration tools, who do not care about their children’s safety. Ask people on the street if they like these kind of parents. They do not say anything but they look down upon them who are opportunists. That’s their life.

    • I agree with you, Trump felt comfortable in speaking that way about kids. Kids are innocent and precious. Trump is disgraceful with no integrity.

  14. Keeping children in cages, and taking their parents away, is the lowest you can go.

    The Republicans are trying to push a “pro-life” judge into the supreme court, while making orphans… I’m waiting to cast my vote in person!

      Dont wait VOTE VOTE VOTE. The President of the FREE WORLD suppresed votes in 2016 AND trying to in 2020…he has chinese bank accounts…Ivanka is trademarked by China..along with Trump. Hes Putins puppet…fires everyone who disagrees with him and approves of white supremacist and he is being allowed to run for reelection? #CROOKEDTRUMP #BIDENHARRIS2020

    • The people that brought them to the Border wasn’t their biological parents.

      @pinky Harris All 500+ kids weren’t with Family members… November 3rd needs to hurry up so I can cast my vote!

      @Ashlynne Shain I’m just in Wisconsin, so I’ll wait to cast my Vote in person November 3rd is all.

  16. “I abducted some children from their parents. But, don’t worry. They might be parentless and might never see their parents again. But, they are well taken care of in the most beautiful cages that we inherited. Oh. Let me remind you who built these horrible cages.” That was Trump’s argument. How incompetent do you have to be when you separate children and their parents whose documents are lacking WITHOUT any sort of record of who is whose parent? I mean… There were hundreds of people involved in the execution of this crazy, unethical government program. Nobody thought, “I think… we should keep track of kids and their parents and record that info somewhere… because we have no document on them.”

  17. As Biden was talking, I could tell that Trump was getting ready to reply with a massive lie because I could see him warming up his
    👋invisible accordion👋.

  18. Trump: Epstine’s GF is taking good care of those kids. She is a good woman. I can grab her …
    MAGA’s shouting in total frenzy.

    • Trump was being cut off by the moderator most of the time and when the camera man points at Biden, the moderator quickly gives him the floor to speak. That’s true.

  19. Do not worry about the children, the hostages are being well taken care of, said Dr. Evil.

    One man is OUTRAGED that those kids are there.
    The other brags about how well they are taken care of.
