Thanks to the misrepresentation of the liberal anti-Trump mainstream media, Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto is wanting a formal apology from President Donald Trump for something he DIDN’T say.
In the video below, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims asked President Trump about MS-13 gang members. She explained the problem she has as the county’s top cop in trying to enforce the laws and protect the people from the violent gang members while at the same time trying to deal with California being a sanctuary state.
In his response to Sheriff Mims, Trump replied:
“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.”
Please watch the video below to see for yourself who said what.
Immediately, the anti-Trump liberal media took Trump’s comment about MS-13 gang members being animals completely out of context and reported that he refereed to all illegal immigrants as animals. A video was made that edited out Sheriff Mims’ reference to MS-13 gang members, leaving her comments dealing with immigration issues and then Trump’s response, making it seem that he was calling all illegals animals. This video was quickly broadcast on C-Span and Twitter.
Just 24 hours later, this skillfully edited video was viewed by more than 2.6 million people and the number is still growing.
“Trump lashed out at undocumented immigrants during a White House meeting, calling those trying to breach the country’s borders ‘animals’ https://nyti.ms/2rJgCjs .”
It wasn’t just the New York Times that ran with the edited video but so did ABC, CBS, CNN and NBC.
“These aren’t people. These are animals.’ President Trump used the harsh rhetoric to describe some undocumented immigrants during a California ‘sanctuary state’ roundtable. https://cbsn.ws/2IpNIvO .”
Andrea Mitchell, NBC News Chief foreign Affairs Correspondent tweeted:
“A tough take down by the California governor after @realDonaldTrump calls people trying to get into the country ‘animals’ not people.”
A Huffington Post headline reads: Trump Refers To Immigrants As ‘Animals.’ Again
Vox ran with the headline: Trump on deported immigrants: “They’re not people. They’re animals.”
One news person, John Harwood with CNBC, who also happens to be closely associated with Hillary’s troubled campaign manage John Podesta, came to the defense of the MS-13 gang members, when he tweeted:
“however repugnant their actions, MS-13 gang members are human beings IMHO”
No wonder Nieto is demanding an apology. Chances are, he never heard the real video with the entire conversation and reference to MS-13 gang members.
In the video below, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders apply responds to the questions of a liberal anti-Trump reporter when she clarified that Trump was responding to Sheriff Mims’ comment about MS-13 gang members and then Sanders adds:
“The term ‘animal’ doesn’t go far enough.”
The National Review defended also defended what Trump said:
“But let’s have no illusions about MS-13. Their motto is ‘Kill, Rape, Control.’ They’re heavily involved in sex trafficking and forcing underage girls into prostitution. They don’t merely kill those who cross them; they do so in particularly gruesome ways to intimidate others, such as stabbing a teenager 153 times in a public park. They leave bodies of victims near elementary schools.”
Since many officials estimate that there are over 10,000 MS-gang members in the US and since they are so violent, Trump needs to establish a federal law enforcement task force to hunt them all down and remove them from society by whatever means is necessary.
