US SOUTHERN BORDER – Time magazine has immortalized the image of a young immigrant child as she first learns that Donald Trump cannot be president in her home country – and can’t make her country great again too.
The picture, showing the American president engaged in a conversation with a Central American toddler, captures the moment the realization hits the youngster that Trump cannot be in charge of her country as well.
“I’m sorry, sweetie, but if the terrible leaders in your country would just follow my example, they could make Honduras great again. But I’m just the president of America. I’m afraid you’ll have to find someone else to make your home great again, so it doesn’t suck so bad that you have to escape and try to come here,” Trump explained.
The little girl countered with the point that a rising tide lifts all boats. That he could make lots of countries great again. But Mr. Trump said he personally could only make one country great again at a time. The disappointed child pleaded for Trump to go back to Honduras with her, but finally said she understood why he couldn’t.
“I was so upset, I couldn’t stop crying,” the girl said. “But he has a do-nothing Congress working against him, so I know he has his hands full with that.”
