Trump rails against California for its immigration policies

The White House said Thursday that President TrumpDonald John TrumpGiuliani says Federal Bureau of Investigation may have placed spy in Trump campaign Giuliani: There is "nothing illegal about looking for dirt on political opponents" Giuliani: If Mueller subpoenas us, we will challenge it MORE was "clearly" referring to members of the MS-13 gang when he called some immigrants "animals" and argued the controversial label is more than appropriate.

Press Sec. Sanders says Pres. Trump's "animals" comment yesterday referred to MS-13 gang members.

Legend then received a bit of backlash over his comments by Twitter users who thought the singer was defending the actions of MS-13 members, or "comparing violent gang members to innocent children".

President Donald Trump has referred to some people who cross the US-Mexican border illegally as "animals" - drawing a sharp rebuke from Democratic leaders for the harsh rhetoric. We're getting them out. "Mexico talks but they do nothing for us, especially at the border".

The White House asserted that Trumps use of the word "animals" against the MS-13 gang members was "the least that describes them".

Democrats and their allies in the media have been willfully distorting comments President Trump made during a Wednesday White House meeting on California's "sanctuary" laws.

"You wouldn't believe how bad these people are", Trump said.

"Comparing any person to an animal, regardless of criminal record or immigration status... is an invitation to violate human rights, to hate, to xenophobic rhetoric, and that is something that can not be accepted", he told Mexican TV network Televisa. But its a big, risky job.

"They're able in some cases to come back in or new groups come in also from the gangs".

During the session, Trump thanked the officials, saying they had "bravely resisted California's deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws". "It's a disgrace", Mr. Trump answered, "and we're suing on that".

"It took an animal to stab a man a hundred times and decapitate him and rip his heart out".

Mrs. Sanders pointed out to Mr. Portnoy that MS-13 "operates by the motto of rape, control and kill". "And it took an animal to kidnap and rape a 13-year-old Houston girl". This led to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders responding to a question during the White House Press briefing today stating the President "animals" description did not go far enough. "Frankly, I think the term animal doesn't go far enough".

"Our courts are the main point of contact for millions of the most vulnerable Californians in times of anxiety, stress and crises in their lives", she said.
