Apparently my point wasn’t clear. Trump has yet to demonstrate actual concern for children. Even American children.
It is better to portray him as an idiot and a blissfully ignorant president, than a malicious man. Sure, he may be malicious in his decisions, but you assert those tendencies without having any way to prove them.
However, Trump has been known to exploit a tragic situation for political gain, as he has obviously done here.
Obviously. Of course, politicians, in general, are keen to exploit any situation and form a narrative around it to suit their political needs. This is how politics is done in modern times, I’m sad to say.
