On Tuesday’s episode of The Five, co-host Juan Williams criticized President Trump and others in the Republican party while discussing the Central American migrant caravan making its way to the United States border.
Williams said Trump is using fiery rhetoric against the migrants and making what he called unverified claims that the caravan includes potential terrorists and gang members, because he is “absent a message for the midterms.”
“He just pushes the fear button when he doesn’t have anything else to say. And, my Republican friends buy this stale bread of hatred,” said Williams. He added that Trump is being “intentionally divisive” and that the “far right” has a history of denying rights to immigrants.
