CBS News reporter Paula Reid called out President Donald Trump for lying about his immigration policy, which Trump falsely claimed (again) is the same as President Obama’s policy.
Trump put his policy into action when he signed an order to imprison all undocumented immigrants (crossing the border) in May 2018, more than a year after Obama left office.
Trump told reporters:
Obama had a separation policy. We all had the same policy.
Reid called out his lie:
You did not have it, sir. No you didn’t.
Trump pushed his false claim with a new spin:
I tried to do it differently. But Obama had a separation policy. But people don’t like to talk about it.
Reid took down Trump again:
Sir, it was different. You decided to prosecute everyone at the border.
