Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said President Donald Trump did not have to “justify” his “zero tolerance” immigration policy.
Bannon said, “It’s zero tolerance. I don’t think you have to justify it.”
He continued, “We have a crisis on the Southern border but the elites in the city — this ties into Korea, ties into everything that took place this week — elites in the city, the permanent political class in this city want to manage situations to bad outcomes. And Donald Trump is not going to do that. He’s just not going to kick the can down the road.”
He added, “He went to a zero-tolerance policy. Zero tolerance. It is a crime to come across illegally, and children get separated. I mean, I hate to say it. That’s the law, and he is enforcing the law.”
