ADRIENNE ELROD (FORMER CLINTON CAMPAIGN STAFFER): I think here the optics look terrible for President Trump in part because of the New York Post cover that you just cited, Melissa, that literally had the mother and her two children wearing diapers with tear gas being thrown at them.

DAGEN MCDOWELL (FOX BUSINESS ANCHOR): Personally, I look at a photo -- that horrible photo of the mother and her two children, and I see child abuse. So, again, if you are an American who believes in personal responsibility, that's the choice that the parents make, quite frankly.
