Trump: "The Democrats Have a Death Wish"

Donald Trump, never one to be subtle (especially on Twitter), had something to say Thursday morning about those on the other side of the aisle.

The Democrats have a death wish, in more ways than one – they actually want to abolish ICE. This should cost them heavily in the Midterms. Yesterday, the Republicans overwhelmingly passed a bill supporting ICE!

Yikes.

On Wednesday, the House approved a resolution 244-35 supporting ICE, while the same measure was blocked in the Senate by Democrats. Senator Steve Daines (R-Montana) said:

It is outrageous. It is irresponsible to call for abolishing one of our country’s most critical security measures. Abolishing ICE would give terrorists, gang members, drug dealers and other criminals a field day.

Some prominent Democrats like Senators Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Kirsten Gillibrand have supported abolishing the agency.

Is Trump right? Is this a midterm death wish?
