US President Donald Trump denied that he intends to reinstate the process of separating migrant families at the border with Mexico, speaking from the White House in Washington DC on Tuesday.
«I'm the one that stopped it. President Obama had child separation,» said Trump. «Now I'll tell you something, once you don't have it that's why you see many more people coming. They're coming like it's a... Еще picnic because let's go to Disneyland. President Obama separated children. They had child separation. I was the one that changed it.»
The US leader also rejected allegations that reported changes in the Department of Homeland Security's senior leadership was in order to allow him to implement tougher immigration laws.
«I never said I'm cleaning house. I don't know who came up with that expression. We have a lot of great people over there. We have bad laws,» said Trump.
