On Sunday, in a Father’s Day tweet, former President Bill Clinton slammed Trump for his family separation policy at the border. He blasted the administration for using the children as bargaining chips for immigration reform. He concluded his tweet by calling on Trump to reunite them with their families to “reaffirm America’s belief in & support for all parents who love their children.”




Clinton tweeted, “On this Father’s Day I’m thinking of the thousands of children separated from their parents at the border. These children should not be a negotiating tool. And reuniting them with their families would reaffirm America’s belief in & support for all parents who love their children.”

Hillary also shared her husband’s tweet with an enthusiastic YES!

The former president was not the only one to use Father’s Day to criticize the policy.




Chelsea tweeted writing, “On #FathersDay & every day, I could not imagine a better dad for Charlotte & Aidan than Marc. I also could not imagine being forcibly separated from my children as I sought sanctuary. No parent, no person should support this.”

In her tweet, she included a post about a tent city in Texas that houses immigrant children.

The tweets come as it was revealed on Friday that there were about 2,000 kids who were taken away from their parents and placed into holding cells at the U.S. Mexico border. This happened between April 19 and May 31.
