Trump's Record

Attacking immigrants and promoting white supremacy

In 2018, the Trump administration implemented a policy that ripped thousands of children from their parents’ arms as part of a deliberately cruel policy intended to deter immigration — and top officials repeatedly failed to reject the president’s embrace of white supremacists.

  • Over 350 children remain separated: When President Trump left office, his administration still had not found the parents of 545 children separated at the border. Despite the efforts of the new administration, hundreds remain separated.
  • Falsely linking immigrants to crime: Top officials in the White House, Department of Justice, and Department of Homeland Security created and promoted propaganda attempting to link immigrants to crime.
  • Child deaths: At least seven children have died in the Department of Homeland Security’s custody on the Trump administration’s watch.
  • Defending Charlottesville protestors: When hundreds of white supremacists gathered for a rally in Charlottesville leading to dozens of injuries and the death of one counter protester, Trump claimed that there were “fine people on both sides” of the violent clashes.
