Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro appeared on FOX News this week to offer his opinion of the verdict in the case of the illegal immigrant who killed Kate Steinle.
Shapiro suggested this is a perfect example of why Trump won the election.
Ben Shapiro on Kate Steinle: The Notion That Illegals Can Commit Crimes and Reenter US Is Why Trump Won
“He was out, he picked up a gun- he stole a gun presumably, and then he shot Kate Steinle,” Shapiro continued. “Whether he meant to shoot her or whether he just meant to discharge the firearm is no consequence.When you pick up that gun and you know that it has the possibility of firing and it fires, this is the very best involuntary manslaughter.”
The conversation then shifted to how this case helped President Trump during the election. And Shapiro thinks this verdict backs up his victory.
“The basic notion that an illegal immigrant can commit crimes in this country and then reenter the country at will is why President Trump won and that’s why President Trump ought to push for the construction of that barrier and ought to make sure that the American people are safe from predators like this one,” he concluded.
