Ex-Trump campaign manager says 'womp womp' after he's told story of Down syndrome child ripped from immigrant mother

Meanwhile, Petkanas asked Lewandowski: "How dare you?"

Lewandowski appeared Tuesday on Fox News Channel to discuss Mr. Trump's hard-line immigration policy.

During an appearance on Fox News Tuesday night, Lewandowski responded "womp, womp" when fellow panelist Zac Petkanas shared the account he had read, CNN reports.

"Did you just say "whuh whuh" to a 10-year-old with Down syndrome?"

Despite being fired from the Trump campaign in 2016, Mr Lewandowski appears to have regained Mr Trump's approval.

Like Petkanas, there were many from the Hollywood community that expressed there opinions about Lewandowski's choice words about the situation.

Host Sandra Smith then cut off the argument and steered the conversation back to immigration policy in general.

"The Mexican government in no way promotes illegal migration", Videgaray told reporters at a Mexico City news conference.

"To be clear, you were not speaking about the young girl with Down syndrome that was separated from her parents at the border?" He said the girl is in McAllen, Texas, while the mother was taken to a center in Brownsville, Texas.

He said that the Mexican government was working to have the girl released so she can be reunited with her father, who is a legal USA resident. Her father is a US citizen. "Of course, this case in particular we have pointed it out to the American authorities at the highest levels". Earlier, he made the false claim on Twitter that the separation of families at the border began under former President Obama, writing, "It's offensive that the MSM doesn't want to talk about the fact that these policies were started under Obama".
