Speaking about illegal immigration and MS-13 today, President Trump made this comment:
“These aren’t people. These are animals,” Trump says in response to a question about the MS-13 gang during his roundtable on sanctuary cities. “… because of the weak laws, they come in fast” https://t.co/FfO3D5ug97

Trump discussing MS-13, “you wouldn’t believe how bad some of these people are. These aren’t people — they’re animals.” https://t.co/xjH8MJoqj9

MS-13 are “animals,” Trump said. Got that? In helping explain California Gov. Jerry Brown’s criticism of Trump, NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell did a solid for the anti-Trump Resistance when translating what the president actually said:
🤥 @realDonaldTrump is lying on immigration, lying about crime and lying about the laws of CA. Flying in a dozen Republican politicians to flatter him and praise his reckless policies changes nothing. We, the citizens of the fifth largest economy in the world, are not impressed.

That’s not what he said & not even remotely close to the context. The animals comment was in response to concerns about MS-13. Backing MS-13 over Trump isn’t the media narrative road I’d go down but this is going to be another rake so have at it https://t.co/XBMhVIb4ww

Welcome back to “journalism” in the post-Obama Trump era!
You're all flat out lying about what he said. This is amazing.

He was talking about MS-13 at the time..and if you do not consider them animals I would consider you one.

And the MSM actually wonders why people view them with complete skepticism?
