As Mexico fumes, Trump says he alluded to only criminals as 'animals'

As Mexico fumes, Trump says he alluded to only criminals as 'animals'

"These are animals. They're coming in to our country and we're getting them out", he said. "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", the New York Times quoting Trump as saying on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump's comments about the gang MS-13, referring to them as "animals," became lost in a sea of controversy.

Terming MS-13 as one of the "most vicious and deadly" gangs that operate by the motto of rape, control and kill, she said if the media and liberals wanted to defend the gang, they were "more than welcome".

In its story, headlined "Trump Calls Some Unauthorized Immigrants "Animals" in Rant," The Times said that Trump had "lashed out at undocumented immigrants" and warned "in front of news cameras that risky people are clamoring to breach the country's borders and branding such people 'animals.'" It wasn't until the third and fourth paragraph of the story that The Times added context to Trump's remarks. "And guess what? I always will", Trump said when asked by reporters at the White House. "Frankly, I think that the term "animal" doesn't go far enough", Sanders said.

Sanders's comments are likely to further enflame the debate surrounding Trump's heated immigration rhetoric. "I'm actually surprised you're asking this question".

She blamed Trump for not being precise: "The President didn't make it clear whether he was talking about gang members or about immigrants in general".

King (R-Seaford) said he has been working with the White House on the event, which is tentatively scheduled to be held at the Morrelly Homeland Security Center in Bethpage. "MS-13 has done heinous acts", she said.

WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 30: Evelyn Rodriguez and Freddy Cuevas, parents of children who were murdered by MS-13 watch as U.S. President Donald J. Trump delivers the State of the Union address in the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives January 30, 2018 in Washington, DC.

"It took an animal to stab a man a hundred times and decapitate him and rip his heart out".

The Trump administration is serious about securing the southern border and stopping the flow of violent crime into this country organized by MS-13 and other gangs. A WLJA report from February of this year described an MS-13 leader who pimped out a number of underage girls from different states. It took an animal to beat a woman they were sex-trafficking with a bat 28 times indenting part of her body.

"This is your Republican resistance right here against what they're doing in California", said Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, coopting a term used by Democrats opposed to Trump's presidency.
