The Daily Caller reported that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) repeatedly stated during her weekly press conference that Democrats would not put children in cages at the border, despite the fact that reports of Obama doing so in 2014 surfaced earlier this year.
“Democrats have taken full responsibility for the border,” Pelosi said as she blamed President Donald Trump for it. She also said that Trump is “incapable of civilized behavior.”
