President Trump responded to the fake news reports that he was referring to undocumented immigrants as “animals,”. He reaffirmed that the comment he made on Wednesday referred only to the violent MS-13 gang members who are mostly illegals.

“I am referring to the MS-13 gangs that are coming in,” he told the press. “I was talking about the MS-13 and if you look further under the tape you will see that.”
Most leftist media outlets ran with the narrative that President Trump was calling all undocumented immigrants ‘animals’. Memes hit the social networks furthering the lie and often inventing Trump quotes to compare him to Hitler. It really is disgusting.
The GOP issued their own video to set the record straight.
