Democrats are willing to spin anything to attack President Trump.
The most recent attack-point was Trump referring to MS-13 gang members as “animals.”
And after Nancy Pelosi attacked Trump for this reason, she got smacked back with a terrible fact she didn’t want anybody to know.
The fact she didn’t want revealed is that she defended violent MS-13 gang members. MS-13’s motto is “kill, rape, control,” and they are growing in size in the United States, largely through exploitation of our lax border control laws.
“We are all God’s children,” Pelosi said in response. “There is a spark of divinity among every person on earth, and we all have to recognize that as we respect the dignity and worth of every person.”
Pelosi went on to parrot a false claim that the President called “undocumented” immigrants animals, stating: “So when the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, ‘These aren’t people, these are animals,’ you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?”
In response, while speaking at a pro-life banquet put on by the Susan B. Anthony List, he fired back at Pelosi for coming out “in favor of MS-13,” stating that she, along with other Democrats “want them treated with respect.”
Trump assured the crowd “that’s not going to happen,” which was welcomed with applause.
The false claim that President Donald Trump referred to illegal immigrants as “animals,” came in response to an interview broadcast on C-SPAN where the President was asked about MS-13 crossing the border. Mainstream media outlets like the Associated Press and CNN left the question out, and stated that his answer was directed at all illegal immigrants.
The Associated Press was forced to delete their initial tweet on the story, and post a retraction.
AP has deleted a tweet from late Wednesday on Trump’s “animals” comment about immigrants because it wasn’t made clear that he was speaking after a comment about gang members.

But while some outlets backed off of their criticism of Trump over the comments, not everyone felt it necessary.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, whose stated goal is to track hate groups, called Trump’s statement “racist” and “dehumanizing.”

In response to the intense criticism from people like Nancy Pelosi, President Trump decided to meet with family members of those killed by MS-13. During his meeting, the President again referred to MS-13 as “animals,” much to the chagrin of the mainstream media.
While President Trump felt calling MS-13 “animals,” was sufficient criticism, Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Thomas Homan fired back, but not for the reason you’d expect. Homan felt that the “animals” characterization was too easy on MS-13 gang members, because “Animals kill for survival. MS-13 kills for sport.”
The families, who were largely immigrants, thanked President Trump for his action on closing immigration loopholes abused by MS-13. Very few mainstream media sources covered the event, some calling it “racist.”
