Democrats, the media, and other anti-Trump voices have recently focused their attention towards President Trump’s immigration policies, including his plans to deport “millions” of illegal aliens in coming weeks.
While the president’s detractors have reacted to the news with increasing outrage, journalist Piers Morgan recently pointed out to the “shrieking Trump haters” that former President Barack Obama “deported THREE MILLION immigrants.”
Morgan also noted that Obama deported illegal aliens “at a far faster rate than Trump,” adding, “Yet none of you cared.”
My regular reminder to shrieking Trump-haters: Obama deported THREE MILLION immigrants – at a far faster rate than Trump.
Yet none of you cared.

Social media commenters largely agreed, with many pointing lambasting the media for their coverage of Trump’s efforts to address the growing migration crisis at the US-Mexico border, and for their hypocrisy in failing to be “outraged” by Obama’s similar actions.
The left don’t really care about what’s being done; they only care about who’s doing it.

No one cared and yes he did! Also never attempted to speak to north Korea to calm it down! Now the north and south trade and there are no silly missle test over Japan! 👌 not saying he is perfect but Obama done nothing on that front! 🇬🇧🇺🇸👌💪🏿

They don’t care because they think Obama was a great president but was average at best.

This intellectually dishonest thinking and bias against Trump is why Trump is coming back in 2020. Folks have to be lucid and honest with the facts.
