Peter Fonda has suggested we “rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles” to see whether Melania Trump will “stand up against the giant a–hole she is married to.”
Fonda took to Twitter to voice his opinion about the border separation policy. The tweet has since been deleted. Fonda also tweeted that he wants to get 90 million people on the streets to protest.
In response to Fonda’s tweet about Barron Trump, who is 12 years old, Donald Trump Jr. wrote, “You’re clearly a sick individual and everyone is an internet badass but rather than attack an 11 year old like a bully and a coward why don’t you pick on someone a bit bigger. LMK.”
People have been railing against the Trump administration policy of separating undocumented parents from children at the U.S.-Mexico border. Videos and audio clips have been released to show the conditions in which the children are being held.
Despite mounting pressure to end the family separation policy from both Democrats and Republicans, Trump dug in yesterday during a speech to small business owners.
“I don’t want children taken away from parents,” said Trump, who again said the policy was out of his hands. “When you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally, which should happen, you have to take the children away.”
On Wednesday, the Associated Press reported that Trump will be “signing something” on immigration to keep migrant families together. According to The AP, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen drafted an executive order for Trump to sign that would direct her department to keep immigrant families together after they are detained for illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexican border.
The Secret Service told TheWrap that they are aware of the tweet but will not be making any additional comments.
