Iranís supreme leader criticizes Trump over family separations
The Hill ^ | June 20, 2018 | John Bowden

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei slammed the Trump administration on Wednesday over the U.S.'s policy of separating migrant families who cross the border illegally for prosecution and detainment.

In comments posted on his website reported by Reuters, Rouhani wrote that he was "exasperated" to see pictures and video of migrant children as young as toddlers being kept in cages, which have caused widespread outrage in the U.S.

“Seeing the images of the crime of separating thousands of children from their mothers in America makes a person exasperated,” Khamenei said, according to Reuters. “But the Americans separate the children from the immigrant parents with complete maliciousness.”

“Seeing the images of the crime of separating thousands of children from their mothers in America makes a person exasperated,” Khamenei said, “those children could be

Is Khamenei trying out to replace Pelosi, take over the House and become Speaker?

Time after time we see that leftists here have the exact same opinions as do the avowed and declared enemies of the USA abroad.

“Seeing the images of the crime of separating thousands of children from their mothers in America makes a person exasperated,” Khamenei said, according to Reuters. “But the Americans separate the children from the immigrant parents with complete maliciousness.”

“Seeing the images of the crime of separating thousands of people from their heads in Iran (and other muslim countries) makes a person exasperated,” Kockamamie said, according to Reuters. “But the muslims separate children from the immigrant parents with complete maliciousness for their own perverted sexual gratification.”

There! Fixed it.

Isn’t it amazing. The Democrats find themselves once again on the same side as a sworn enemy of the American people.

This Time the enemy stands in front of his people and shouts “Death to America!”
The Democratic party should certainly be proud of that.
