TRUMP STRIKES BACK: The President Trashes ‘FAKE NEWS’ for Twisting ‘Animal’ Remarks

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.18.18

President Trump unloaded on the mainstream media Friday morning for twisting his remarks regarding MS-13 gang members, saying the “Fake News Media” got it “purposely wrong as usual.”

The Commander-in-Chief took to twitter to vent his frustration hours after multiple news outlets claimed he referred to “all immigrants” as “animals,” apparently unaware he was directly referring to criminal MS-13 gang members residing in American prisons.

“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!” tweeted the President.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats jumped on the media’s bandwagon within minutes, defending the gang members while questioning President Trump’s faith in “divinity.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed liberal legislators and the mainstream media Thursday for routinely misrepresenting the President’s comments on MS-13 gang members, saying the term “animals” doesn’t go far enough.

“The President was very clearly referring to MS-13 gang members who entered the country illegally and whose deportations are hamstrung by our laws. This is one of the most vicious and deadly gangs,” said Sanders.

Press Secretary on "Animals"

"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. 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, drug, and rape a 14-year-old Houston girl. Frankly, I think that the term 'animal' doesn't go far enough." – Press Secretary Sarah Sanders

White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway slammed those critical of President Trump’s use of the term “animals” to describe MS-13 gang members Thursday, saying politicians who “rushed to judgment” owe Trump and gang violence victims “an apology.”

Conway called out the liberal lawmakers on social media, saying they took his words out of context to make it appear as if he was referring to all immigrants as “animals,” not specifically MS-13 gang members.

“Others who rushed to judgment to get the President rather than to get the story owe @POTUS – and the grieving loved ones who have lost family members to gang violence – an apology,” she tweeted.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed the President on twitter Wednesday night, comparing “our great grandparents” to MS-13 gang members; apparently unaware the President was referring to jailed criminals residing in American prisons.
