The Claim: The New York Times (and other media outlets) claimed that President Trump called Mexican immigrants “Animals” in a speech. This accusation was part of a pattern of accusations against Trump for being “racist” towards Mexicans who come to this country. (occurred May 16, 2018)
No, Trump did not call all illegal immigrants “animals.” President Trump was referring to the violent MS-13 Gang that has brought violence, drugs, and sexual violence into our country. What they have done is not humane, so what else should they be called?
