On Sunday night, in a serious of tweets, President Donald Trump began tweeting to a parody account of former Director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Homan.
Trump sent two tweets to the @ThomasHomanICE account which before Sunday had been dormant since June 23, 2017. In his first tweet, Trump tweeted a quote from Homan and tagged the parody account.
“If the Democrats would have closed the Loopholes two years ago when President Trump asked them to do so, none of this stuff would have happened.” @ThomasHomanICE— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 29, 2019
In a second tweet, Trump posted another quote and once again tagged the Homan parody account, along with Steve Hilton.
After over two years of silence, the Homan parody account sprang to life and began tweeting out links to support groups against Trump’s immigration policies which have been internationally criticized.
The account also tweeted a quote from Frantz Fanon and other comments against the current immigration system and even made sure to hold prominent Democrats responsible for helping fix the current crisis.
