President Donald Trump punched back at the media for their manipulation in regards to calling MS-13 gang members “animals.”
On Wednesday, the President referred to MS-13 members as animals, but the mainstream media decided to spin that into a narrative claiming President Trump called immigrants “animals.”
When a reporter questioned Trump’s comment, he replied: “Well, it has nothing to do with this meeting. I’m referring, and you know I’m referring, to the MS-13 gangs that are coming in. I was talking about the MS-13.”
“Also, if you look further onto the tape you will see that. I’m actually surprised you are asking this question. Most people got it right. But I’m saying the MS-13.”
The President added, “We need strong immigration laws. We have the weakest laws in the entire world. We have laws that are laughed at on immigration.”
He then firmly admitted he’ll always refer to MS-13 gang members, and other gangs, as “animals.”
“So when the MS-13 comes in, when the other gang members come into our country, I refer to them as animals. And guess what. I always will.”
A similar question was asked to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders today. She put the reporter in his place: “This is one of the most vicious and deadly gangs that operates by the motto of rape, control and kill.”
”If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, they’re more than welcome to. Frankly, I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough,” she exclaimed.
“MS-13 has done heinous acts. It took an animal to stab a man 100 times and decapitate him and rip his heart out. It took an animal to beat a woman they were sex trafficking with a bat, 28 times, indenting part of her body. And it took an animal to kidnap and rape a 13-year-old Houston girl.”

The media is obsessed with twisting the President’s words and that’s evident yet again.
