It’s hard to argue with him.
President Trump was clearly referring to members of MS 13 when he referred to “Animals” coming across the border.
Fake News Media had me calling Immigrants, or Illegal Immigrants, “Animals.” Wrong! They were begrudgingly forced to withdraw their stories. I referred to MS 13 Gang Members as “Animals,” a big difference – and so true. Fake News got it purposely wrong, as usual!

MSM reporters don’t like Trump and believe he is a racist. In their eagerness to paint him in a bad light, they decided this was a “there he goes again” moment recalling his campaign announcement speech, in which he said “rapists” were coming across the border. And so they decided to ignore what he was obviuosly saying, something that few MSM editors would argue with.
And it’s also a much better story to suggest he might be saying something racist than to simply report the obvious notion that vicious gang members are animals.
“Because the press believes President Trump hates immigrants, especially if they’re from South America, everything he says about the subject is interpreted through that prism,” wrote Becket Adams in the Washington Examiner. “There’s no excuse for the hard news side of the journalism business getting things so completely wrong.”
Another bad day at the office for the press, which once again sat down at its desk, took out a pistol, and shot itself in the foot.
