As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following opinion piece published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

On Wednesday, President Trump hosted a roundtable with local California leaders, decrying the immigration laws in the country, and condemned the international criminal gang, MS-13.

However, that’s not what made the news.

Instead, what spawned was a 47-second clip of Trump calling what can only be interpreted as all undocumented immigrants as “animals,” and not “people.”

The article goes on to state the following:

What was missing from this clip was one lady’s comment in which she specifically laments about what she should do when trying to report MS-13 gang members who are in the country illegally.

The New York Times ran the headline, “Trump Calls Some Unauthorized Immigrants ‘Animals’ in Rant.” In the Washington Post, they ran a story with the headline, “Calling immigrants ‘animals,’ Trump evokes an ugly history of dehumanization.” In USA Today, it’s “Trump ramps up rhetoric on undocumented immigrants: ‘These aren’t people. These are animals.’

This is literally fake news.

In context, the president was responding to Sheriff Margaret Mims from Fresno County, who said if an MS-13 gang member doesn’t meet a certain threshold, she “cannot tell ICE about them.”

Trump responded: “We have people coming into the country or trying to come in, 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.”

Below is a video clip that begins with Sheriff Mims’ remarks. Below that is a sampling of Twitter posts from some journalists, personalities, and the media, including Fox News, emphasizing the “These aren’t people. These are animals,”portion of the president’s response to Mims.
