Trump and Oakland Mayor Trade Twitter Barbs Over Immigration Policies.

President Trump and a California mayor traded barbs over Twitter on Saturday, prompted by the president’s repeated threats to release detained immigrants into “sanctuary cities.”

The exchange between Trump and Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf also appeared to be triggered, at least in part, by recent New York Times articles about the president’s immigration policies.

“So interesting to see the Mayor of Oakland and other Sanctuary Cities NOT WANT our currently ‘detained immigrants’ after release due to the ridiculous court ordered 20 day rule,” Trump tweeted.

Schaaf fired back, saying: “It’s time to stop fanning hate and division @realDonaldTrump – I’ve been consistent and clear: #Oakland welcomes all, no matter where you came from or how you got here.”
