Journalists Admit Trump Called MS-13 'Animals,' Still Declare Label Racist

Trump calls some illegal immigrants as “animals”

"These aren't people. These are animals", Trump said during a California Sanctuary State Roundtable at the White House.

Mr. Trump made the remarks on Wednesday during a meeting with California municipal leaders, who support his goal of making the USA border impervious to illegal immigration. In a nationally televised speech, Trump pointed to the pair of grieving parents to condemn the actions of the MS-13 members charged with killing the teens, promising that he would "make sure that other families never have to endure this pain".

At a roundtable meeting on Wednesday about US immigration policies, including California's so-called "sanctuary law", President Trump referred to "bad people" being deported from the United States as "animals," sparking intense backlash from the everything-Trump-says-and-does-is-racist media.

That increase is likely due in part to the fact that the hotel did not open until the fall of 2016. Mr Trump bought the five-star Doonbeg resort in 2014, reportedly for €9 million.

Mexico's foreign ministry sent a formal diplomatic letter to the U.S. state department complaining that Trump's comments were "absolutely unacceptable". These aren't people. These are animals. Trump has often painted members of MS-13 - a gang that originated in the United States but with roots in El Salvador - as "vicious" and "killers". I was talking about the MS-13.

"I'm referring and you know I'm referring to the MS-13 gangs that are coming in".

A headline on the homepage of The Washington Post on Thursday morning read, "Trump refers to some undocumented immigrants as 'animals.'" The story's lede said Trump had "referred to some undocumented immigrants as 'animals.'" It wasn't until the newspaper's sixth paragraph that Trump's comments were put in the full context.

EU's Donald Tusk takes aim at Donald Trump over Iran, steel sanctions
We realize that if you need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of your arm'. The aim is to counter Trump's reimposition of sanctions on Iran.

But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended the president's comments, arguing the word "animals" didn't go far enough.

Trump's comments came during a discussion with state and local leaders on California's so-called sanctuary laws, which strictly limit communication between local law enforcement and federal immigration officers and which the Trump administration is suing to invalidate. This was fueled in part by some media outlets misreporting Trump's statement as applying to all illegal immigrants and not just the notorious Central American gang. And Trump has held numerous events in recent months during which he's drawn attention to California's policies. She's right. MS-13's motto is "mata, viola, controla", or "kill, rape, control". Brown responded on Twitter, writing that Trump "is lying on immigration, lying about crime and lying about the laws of CA".

The Democratic governor added: "Flying in a dozen Republican politicians to flatter him and praise his reckless policies changes nothing". In his first year, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested 46,000 people without criminal records - a 171% increase in the number of non-criminal individuals arrested over 2016.

After US, Guatemala opens its embassy in Jerusalem
During the ceremony, Netanyahu praised the Central American country for its long friendship and recognition of the Jewish State. That move caused some tension because both Israel and Palestinians claim Jerusalem as their capital.

"We're willing to see what this looks like", said Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., a leader of the lawmakers trying to force the House to address the issue.
