Rosie O’Donnell’s anti-Trump art entered a new phase this week as she begins to focus on “children in cages in trump camps.”

The Hollywood comedian and activist, who started selling 5x7 “rage” prints related to the president in 2018, will sell art inspired by the U.S. immigration crisis along the border with Mexico.

Ms. O’Donnell, who has echoed New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that “concentration camps” are being run at the behest of the White House, said she will donate money from the e-commerce website Etsy to nonprofit organizations.

 - all money made will be matched by me and donated to nonprofits helping children in cages in trump camps,” she tweeted Thursday. “#NoKidsInCages.”

Mr. Trump has repeatedly defended conditions at detention facilities, given the logistical strain placed on the U.S. Border Patrol, and lambasted Democrats for failing to find a principled compromise on the matter.



“I’ve seen some of those places and they are run beautifully,” Mr. Trump said Friday. “They’re clean. … They’re crowded because the Democrats will not give us any relief from these loopholes. We have loopholes that’s so bad. We have asylum, that’s so bad.”
