Former Trump campaign manager tweets background to 'wah-wah' comment

Corey Lewandowski

But Corey Lewandowski, President Trump's former campaign manager, offered a different response when he heard about the girl while appearing on Fox News on Tuesday night.

Lewandowski caused outrage yesterday for mocking Petkanas's story of a young migrant girl with Down Syndrome, responding "womp womp". How dare you. How dare you. Petkanas asked incredulously. "How dare you!" Children are taken from their parents and placed in temporary detention centers while their parents are detained and forced to meander the immigration court system.

"Womp womp", Lewandowski said, while rolling his eyes.

The story came from Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray who explained that the girl and her brother were brought to McAllen, Texas after their mother was arrested.

This isn't about left or right, what's happening at the border is inhumane.

"I agree, but there are no infants committing crimes here in the US", Petkanas retorted.

"I was mocking Zac, a liberal Democrat national committee activist who is doing nothing but politicizing the issue of making an example of one particular child", he said, Mediaite reported. Among those who spoke out against Lewandowski's comment were former Fox News personality Megyn Kelly, current Fox News contributor Guy Benson and March for Our Lives advocate Ryan Deitsch.

A former campaign manager for Donald Trump is doubling down on his dismissive comment regarding a girl with Down syndrome.

According to the agency, the separation was not a result of the Trump Administration's new "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

"Lots of Fake News today", Lewandowski tweeted Wednesday morning. There is no USA law requiring that the children of immigrants entering the country illegally be separated from their parents. This, it said, "precipitated the separation of the two other children, both Mexican citizens".

"Donald Trump does not need to sign an executive order to take these kids out of these facilities", he said.
