President Donald Trump concluded a bold speech on illegal immigration by hugging the American flag -- as if there was any question as to how much the president loves his country.
“We’re doing well as a country, and you are the ones truly who are making America great again,” Trump said before wrapping his arms around the U.S. flag on the stage.

Trump’s embrace of the American flag lit up the internet, garnering responses from his supporters and critics.
In his speech to the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), Trump addressed the uproar surrounding his tough “zero tolerance” illegal immigration policy.
"We want to solve family separation, and I don't want the children to be taken away from parents, and when you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally, which should happen, you have to take the children away," Trump said.
The president has repeatedly called on Democrats to stop “obstructing” and work with Republicans to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Trump has made it clear that he wants funding for the border wall to be included in the legislation.
On Tuesday, he tweeted that Democrats are the "problem."
"Democrats are the problem. They don’t care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country, like MS-13," he tweeted. They can’t win on their terrible policies, so they view them as potential voters!"
