Many Yahoo commenters stand with Oprah, agreeing that families should not be separated. “I feel sorry for the kids who have [been] removed from their parents,” one commenter wrote. “KEEP FAMILIES TOGETHER,” wrote another.
Although Oprah is one of the most beloved people on the planet, some people support Trump and his view on the matter a bit more. “President Trump is trying to get this country back on track,” expressed a commenter. “He loves America!” “First of all it is NOT a Trump policy, it is the LAW,” said another.
“Sometimes truth transcends party,” Obama tweeted.
