Who Knew Trump Was President Before the Election?

6/29/18 NBC News reports:
Officials have said that at least 2,342 children were separated from their parents after being apprehended crossing the border unlawfully since May 5, when the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy towards migrants went into effect.
But numbers provided to NBC News by the Department of Homeland Security show that another 1,768 were separated from their parents between October 2016 and February 2018, bringing the total number of separated kids to more than 4,100.
October 2016?  I thought Obama was still in charge until January 2017.

more importantly, the Dems say its all because of how Trump's AG interprets the legislation and the 9th circuit ruling. But when did Trump's AG (Sessions) take the reins: Answer is February 9th, 2017.

And notice how they obscure the numbers. 1,768 children were separated from their parents between October 2016 and February 2018. How many were separated before February 2017?
