Yes. He's being described as a "fierce supporter" of Trump's border policies, which means I wouldn't allow him to dog sit for me.

Trump's Appointing a "Border Czar"

188 Views
Message 15 of 15

Donald Trump said he was planning to appoint Thomas Homan as the new "Border Czar." If you look in the dictionary, it states that "czar" is defined as "an emperor or king, (and/or) an "autocratic ruler."  Never in my life would I have thought that an American president would give a U.S. offical a title invented by the Russians. We should all write our Republican congressmen/women and tell them we will not stand for this. We should never, ever, allow that title to be given to anyone serving in the United States government.
