Conway defends Trump’s comments blaming Democrats for child migrant deaths

Washington (CNN)White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Sunday defended President Donald Trump’s border security rhetoric — including the assertion that “any deaths of children” at the border are “strictly the fault of the Democrats” — after a second migrant child died in US custody earlier this month.

“We’re allowing these people to take their children on a perilous journey without correcting the falsities,” she told CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union.” “They’re being promised something that people can simply not deliver upon.”
“Any death of a child, any death of anyone is an utter tragedy,” she added. “I think the President’s point is an important one, which is that he has stayed in Washington to negotiate border security and to get funding for DHS and ICE and CBP and, of course, enhanced border security, which Democrats, until he took over as president, were all in favor of.”
