Toobin, CNN’s senior legal adviser, said former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's reputation has been forever ruined.

On CNN, Jeffery Toobin dubbed President Trump “the great reputation killer.”

He explains that Kristjen Nielsen “was a reasonably admired bureaucrat. For the rest of her life people will look at her and think, ‘Oh, that’s the woman who put children in cages, that’s the woman who broke up families across the border.’”

On June 17, 2018 Nielsen tweeted “We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.” Yet, Nielsen was the one who implemented the family separation policy.

Kritjen has recently resigned from her position in the Trump administration. Trump tweeted about her resignation before Nielsen was able to send in her resignation letter.
