Hezbollah: Trump ‘monster’ for migrant family separations

June 29, 2018

BEIRUT (AP) — The leader of Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group has blasted President Donald Trump as a “wild monster” over the policy of separating children from their parents for migrants caught illegally entering the U.S.

Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech Friday that the policy shows Trump’s “real image.”

More than 2,300 children have been separated from their parents in recent weeks as they sought to enter the U.S. illegally. Some were placed in government-contracted shelters hundreds of miles away from their parents.

“Doesn’t the image of immigrant children separated from their fathers and mothers and put in isolated places clearly express the brutality of President Trump and his administration?” asked Nasrallah.

“Had people been able to see the real image of Trump he would appear a wild monster,” he added.
