Nielsen: Democrats Owe Trump Apology for Distorting MS-13 Remarks
Neilsen, appearing on “Fox and Friends,” discussed the recent controversy triggered after media outlets inaccurately reported remarks the president made during a White House meeting Wednesday. Numerous media outlets reported Trump referred to all illegal immigrants as “animals,” but in actuality, he used the term to specifically describe MS-13 gang members.
The secretary expressed that she was “horrified” by the distortion and the backlash it evoked, stating it was clear who Trump was referencing.
“I have to be honest,” Nielsen said. “I was a bit horrified. The president was very clear; if you listen to the tape or if you were in the room, it was clear he was talking about MS-13.”…
“This is a gang whose very motto is ‘rape, control, and kill.’ The instances of the brutality and the violence that they conduct on communities is well documented,” Nielsen said. “Everything from [a] sex-trafficked woman whose head was bashed in 28 times to a gentleman who was stabbed 100 times, decapitated, and then his heart was taken out.”
“So, if anyone wants to quibble about whether we should call those people animals, perhaps the quibble should be whether we call them something worse,” she added.

She is absolutely right. What the Democrats did this week was shameful.
