President Donald Trump fired off an explosive tweet on Wednesday that featured a video compilation exposing former President Barack Obama, Sen. Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, and Democrats for being hypocrites on illegal immigration.
In the video collage, the Democrats are all demanding an end to illegal immigration, securing the border, and enforcing immigration laws — the same thing Trump has been calling for, yet he’s the only one getting criticized for it.
While exposing liberals for their hypocrisy on the issue, Trump said unlike his all-talk no-action predecessors, he’s going to do something about it.
“Don’t worry, the Republicans, and your President, will fix it!” Trump wrote.

The video has gone viral, and has been viewed nearly 5 million times. The video has gained so much attention because it exposes the Democrats outrage for what it is: trendy, flavor-of-the-month bluster.
The video begins with Obama saying in no uncertain terms: “Our immigration system is broken.” Of course, Obama’s lax immigration policies are exactly what created the massive problem that Trump is faced with today.
What about Schumer saying in the video, “Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple.”
Just this week, he stonewalled a proposal by Trump for a legislative fix to the immigration loopholes plaguing the nation, saying he wanted to make it about Trump and not the issue at hand.
The video then turns to former President Bill Clinton. “Americans [….] are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country,” the former president said.
What about Sen. Diane Feinstein, who endorsed the “Keep Families Together Act”? “The people who should be here are those who come legally,” she said back then.
Last but not least, Hillary Clinton — arguably the biggest hypocrite in modern political history — once said illegal children should not be allowed to stay in the U.S. just because they crossed the border.
“We have to send a clear message. Just because your child gets across the border doesn’t mean the child gets to stay,” she said at the time.
This short video proves, once again, that Democrats will say whatever helps them get votes.
They once held the exact same views on combating illegal immigration as Trump, but now criticize the president for following the law and securing the border.
