CNN’s Jake Tapper suggested hypocrisy on the part of President Donald Trump’s expressed concern for “beautiful babies” killed in Syria, implying that the president’s expressed concern should compel the admission of more “refugees” from the failed Muslim-majority state.
In an interview with U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley on Sunday’s State of the Union, Tapper asked why babies from Syria – perhaps along with their mothers – would not be admitted to the homeland as refugees following Trump’s “refugee ban:”
“President Trump made his decision, in part, because of the images he saw from the chemical weapon attack. The ‘beautiful babies,’ in his language, that were killed. How do you square that with President Trump also banning refugees coming in from Syria? I understand wanting more intense vetting, I certainly get that. But if we’re talking about beautiful babies being slaughtered, why not allow Syrian refugees who are children, and maybe their mothers to come in after they’ve been vetted?”
