Far-Left Activists, Democrats & Media Spread Lie Saying Trump Called Immigrants ‘Animals’

Democrat politicians, media hacks, and far-left activists spread a butchered video clip from last year that took President Trump out of context, to falsely claim he called immigrants “animals.”

The truth of the matter is, he was referring to members of the notoriously hyper-violent MS-13 street gang.

MS-13 is a gang of mostly illegal immigrants who traffic dangerous narcotics and murder people in the most horrific, torturous ways.

A Twitter user named Mark Elliott reposed an old CSPAN video from 2018 where they deceptively edited it out of context so it could be spread that Trump was calling illegal immigrants and asylum seekers “animals.”

Elliot retweeted the video with the caption “.@realDonaldTrump on people asking for asylum ‘These aren’t people. These are animals.'”

Here is the original deceptive video tweeted by CSPAN:

Surprisingly, CNN was one of the few in the media that accurately reported the full context of what Trump said when he made the remarks.

Here is the part of the transcript that puts it in context:

Sheriff Margaret Mims: “There could be an MS-13 member I know about — if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about it.”

President Donald Trump: “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.”

Here is the full video clip of what Trump was talking about:

The lie went round back in May and most everyone knows by now he was talking about MS-13. Many Democrats, like Nancy Pelosi even acknowledged he was talking about MS-13, but that Trump was still the bad guy for calling them animals.

So there is no doubt that many of these Democrat politicians, far-left activists, and media hacks know full well they are perpetuating the lie again and have been doing it since Friday.

Here are some of them in all of their glory:

Democrat presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand: “Racist language like this has led to violence throughout the world’s history. No human being is an animal. We have to be better than this.”

Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg: “You do not refer to human beings as animals. You just don’t.”

DNC Chairman Tom Perez: “This type of dehumanizing language is dangerous, and against everything we stand for as a country.”

Sherrilyn Ifill President and Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund: “This is so irresponsible and dangerous. We have seen this around the world.”

Far-left activist David Hogg: “Step two on the pyramid of committing genocide: Dehumanization.”

CNN’s Ana Navarro: “This is journalist, @TifaniRoberts comforting a small boy on the border. He was shot in the throat by Ortega’s thugs in Nicaragua. This little boy is seeking asylum in the United States. His name is William. Trump calls him ‘animal’.”

Christine Teigen: “f***ing vile man.”

MSNBC’s Joy Reid: “Asylum seekers ‘aren’t people.’ They are ‘animals.’ This is particularly frightening language coming out of a person vested with the power of a presidential office.”

Democrat Rep. Yvette D. Clarke (NY): “This is appalling. This is cruel. This is dehumanizing. This is racist. This is un-American. This is Donald J. Trump.”

Former Obama official Ben Rhodes: “If the leader of any other country said this, we would view it as a horrifying, authoritarian assault on human dignity. Which it is.”

Democrat Rep. TJ Cox (CA): “Immigrants aren’t animals. Children aren’t animals. And they don’t deserve to be locked in cages, separated from their families.”

Democrat Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (PA): “My father, who was welcomed by this country after surviving the Holocaust, is not an animal. The people seeking refuge and asylum in America like he did are not animals. Smart and effective border security does not involve denigrating our fellow humans. Full stop.”

Mikel Jollett, frontman of the band The Airborne Toxic Effect: “The President of the United States literally saying immigrants aren’t ‘human.’ This is the literal definition of the ‘dehumanization’ which precedes genocide.”
