Was specific reference to brutal MS-13 gang, not all immigrants or all illegal immigrants, but you wouldn’t know that from the mainstream media headlines.
The MSM wonders why the majority of America cannot stand them. It’s probably because of the way they twist and edit President Donald Trump’s words.
The New York Times, The Washington Post, and others all claimed that Trump called “some unauthorized immigrants” animals during a rant. No. He referred to members of the dangerous MS-13 gang as animals.
What Trump Actually Said
CNN’s Jake Tapper posted the full context of Trump’s quotes:
Here is the video of the meeting:
Look at this:
At least Time published a correct headline!
Here’s what The New York Times wrote (emphasis mine):
As he has in numerous private meetings with his advisers at the White House, Mr. Trump used the session to vent about the nation’s immigration laws, calling them “the dumbest laws on immigration in the world.” He exhorted his administration to “do much better” in keeping out undesirable people, including members of transnational gangs like MS-13.

NO. THE COMMENTS ARE ABOUT MS-13 GANG MEMBERS.
Trump referred to those crossing US border illegally as “animals” and slammed California sanctuary state laws as “deadly.” https://t.co/TEdwe4Qevq

Eugene Scott at The Washington Post wrote that Trump’s reference to animals “evokes an ugly history of dehumanization.” Thing is, Scott INCLUDES THE TRANSCRIPT THAT PROVES TRUMP REFERENCED MS-13 MEMBERS AS ANIMALS.
Good Lord. If you want Trump to stop calling you FAKE NEWS then maybe you shouldn’t release FAKE NEWS. Just a thought.
