President Trump unloaded on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democrats during a fiery speech in Indiana Thursday; blasting the left-wing lawmakers for their failed immigration policies and reluctance to crackdown on MS-13.
The President was speaking before a packed crowd when he mocked Pelosi for her response to his “animal” comments surrounding MS-13 gang members, saying Democrats simply “want to abolish ICE.”

“I can’t say animals anymore because Nancy Pelosi got very angry when I called them animals,” said Trump. “I called them animals and she went crazy. I can’t do it. I can’t call them animals. Even though they have guns, but they don’t like using guns because it’s not painful enough. They want to slice people up. Young girls walking home from school, 16 years old. And they sliced them up,” said Trump.

'ANIMAL' RIGHTS: Southern Poverty Law Center SLAMS Trump’s MS-13 Remarks
The Southern Poverty Law Center slammed the Trump administration’s use of the term ‘animals’ when describing violent MS-13 gang members this week; saying it was “unacceptable” to use the “racist” and “dehumanizing language.”
The SPLC posted the complaint on social media just one day after the White House published an official report on the ‘Animals of MS-13’ on their official website, saying it was inappropriate to use the term ‘animal’ 10 times.
“It is unacceptable for such racist, dehumanizing language to now be repeated 10 times on the White House website in a document that speaks for America,” posted the SPLC.

The mainstream media went into a full-fledged frenzy last week after the President used the term to describe criminal gang members residing in US prisons; saying his administration will do “everything” it can to keep MS-13 out of the United States.
GANGLAND: MS-13 Orders Members to ‘TAKE OUT COPS’ in New York
Notorious street-gang MS-13 has reportedly ordered its members to “take out” police officers in New York; hoping to send a strong message to authorities following a serious crackdown on the group throughout the region.
According to the New York Post, the NYPD is on high-alert after a confidential informant told police that gang members were given a green light to murder local police officers; particularly in the nearby town of Hempstead on Long Island.
“The police have been making too many arrests and it’s time to take the streets back and take out (shoot) a cop like we do in El Salvador,” the suspect said.
Police are ratcheting up patrols and tracking down all leads related to the threat.
“It is imperative for members of the service to take these threats seriously and adapt their work habits and lifestyles accordingly,” said a memo released by the New York Police Department.
