Media, Dems BUSTED Using Edited Clip To Falsely Claim Trump Slandered Immigrants

Democrat lawmakers and the liberal media falsely accused President Donald Trump on Wednesday of calling immigrants “animals.”

During an event at the White House with California lawmakers, the president and a group of leaders were discussing immigration, gang violence, and the need to secure the border.

The catastrophic lie began when a selectively edited clip posted by CSPAN showed the president saying, “We have people coming into the country…You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals.”

This ignited a firestorm on Twitter, where media outlets and liberal pundits were desperate to attack Trump for making the comments. The only problem is that he was calling MS-13 gang members “animals,” not immigrants.

But MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, The New York Times, the Associated Press, CBS News, The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin, and many others didn’t report that because it went against their political narrative.

Here’s the full video, which provides context and clearly shows Trump was specifically referring to MS-13 members as being “animals.”

The comment was made by Trump after California Sheriff Margaret Mims mentioned MS-13 at the event, saying, “there can be an MS-13 member I know about, if they don’t reach a certain threshold I cannot tell ICE about them.”

Trump saying they are “bad people” and “animals” was a direct response to the comments made by Mims, but CSPAN used a selectively edited clip and gave liberals all the ammunition they needed to falsely accuse and attack Trump.

The New York Times did most of the heavy lifting, writing that Trump was referring only to “those trying to breach the country’s borders.”

Many other liberal lackeys followed suit:

Winston Churchill once said, “a lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” None of these major news outlets or reporters even considered or attempted to view the full video, and they worked overtime to spread this lie everywhere.

They took a 20 second clip that was edited, wrote articles and broadcasted live segments on a comment that is a provable lie. Trump called MS-13 gang members “animals,” not immigrants. The media spent much of Wednesday slandering and smearing Trump over a complete lie.

This is why so many Americans loathe the media and do not trust them to report the news fairly and accurately.
