Yesterday, Trump used the word ‘animals’ to describe members of the murderous MS-13 gang. Democrats and the media created a blatant lie, claiming that Trump used the word to describe immigrants. This is a perfect example of how Democrats and the media will lie to smear Trump at any cost.
Fake News: Media and Democrats Lie Repeatedly About President Trump Calling Illegal Immigrants ‘Animals’
Another day, another false “news” story.
During a roundtable discussion Wednesday afternoon at the White House with federal immigration officials and local politicians fighting sanctuary city policies, President Trump referred to MS-13 gang members as “animals.”
From the White House transcript:
SHERIFF MIMS: Thank you. There could be an MS-13 member I know about — if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about it.
THE PRESIDENT: We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we’re stopping a lot of them — but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy.
The comments were deliberately taken out of context by the media:
