Donald Trumptold reporters on Friday, when asked about separating migrant families at the U.S. -Mexico border: "I hate the children being taken away".
It came the day after his administration said that it had taken almost 2,000 children away from their parents in a six-week period ending last month, as part of a new zero tolerance policy that refers for criminal prosecution all immigrants apprehended crossing the border without authorization.
The new policy, enforced by Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, charges adults crossing the border illegally in the criminal justice system meaning children are separated from them.

Earlier in the day, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway attempted to distance the Trump administration from the rise of migrant children separated from their parents at the Mexican border. But a backlash is mounting, fuelled by reports of children being taken from mothers and distraught toddlers and elementary school age children asking, through tears, when they can see their parents. The Department of Homeland Security said Friday that almost 2,000 children have been placed into shelters over a six-week period.

The president himself later tweeted: "The Democrats should get together with their Republican counterparts and work something out on Border Security & Safety".
"Democrats are good at only three things, High Taxes, High Crime and Obstruction", Trump said, using the argument to promote Republican candidates ahead of the November midterms. One woman tried to give her toys and books to calm her down, but even that shelter worker seemed frustrated, Kraft told The Washington Post, because as much as she wanted to console the little girl, she couldn't touch, hold or pick her up to let her know everything would be all right.
"Look six months out from now", he said.
Mrs. Trump didn't refer specifically to the Trump administration's "no tolerance" policy, which was leading to a spike in children being separated from their families.
