Media misquotes Trump again when calling MS-13, criminals ‘animals’ as Beto O’Rourke likens him to Hitler, the Nazis

President Donald Trump has said immigrant gang members are “not people” but “animals,” but the media omitted the “gang members” part of the statement to attribute his remarks to ALL immigrants, migrants and/or asylum seekers.

During a roundtable discussion that touched on so-called sanctuary cities, MS-13 gang members, the federal “catch and release” practice, and policies in California related to the detention of immigrants.

Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims gave a long statement which ended with “…There could be an MS-13 gang member I know about — if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about it.”

Trump’s response: “We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we’re stopping a lot of them — but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy.” (Emphasis added, The Dispatch)

Here’s USA Today: Trump ramps up rhetoric on undocumented immigrants: ‘These aren’t people. These are animals.’

Some followed the lead of the NY Times or CBS, noting that Trump called “some” immigrants animals.

Of course, the President is speaking of these violent criminals, particularly linked to MS-13 and other radical groups.

The LA Times keeps doubling down on their bias reporting: “Trump on Thursday afternoon clarified that he was referring to MS-13 gang members — though that wasn’t what he said on Wednesday. So maybe he needs some elocution lessons.)”

This is why the “Fake News” term resonates with folks.

2020 candidate Robert ‘Beto’ O’Rourke led the outrage campaign, calling Trump a Nazi, likening him to Hitler.

“I compared the rhetoric that the President has employed to rhetoric that you might’ve heard during the Third Reich,” O’Rourke told a reporter, following a meet and greet at Morningside College in Sioux City. “Calling human beings an ‘infestation’ is something that we might have expected to hear in Nazi Germany.”

He later added, “If we don’t call out racism, certainly at the highest levels of power, in this position of trust that the President enjoys, then we’re going to continue to get its consequences.”
