President Trump called some immigrants “animals.” He said:
“We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — we’re stopping a lot of them,” Mr. Trump said in the Cabinet Room during an hourlong meeting that reporters were allowed to document. “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.”
The debate is now predictably to descending whether we should place the animals comment in context of just the MS-13 members.
Here’s what I have to say about that:
Clearly when Hitler published, “Der Jude Kriminell” he was just speaking of criminal Jews and it wasn’t part of a broader campaign to stoke racist fears. #Animals #MS13 pic.twitter.com/YPmOS4ifBH
