Mexico slams Trump for calling migrants 'animals'

Nancy Pelosi says Trump denies the ‘spark of divinity’ with insult to MS-13 gang members

"Others who rushed to judgment to get the President rather than to get the story owe @POTUS-and the grieving loved ones who have lost family members to gang violence-an apology", tweeted the unflappable Kellyanne Conway, while Don Jr., along with much of the rest of the Trump cavalcade, defended the comments by insisting that his father used the phrase exclusively in reference to gang members, and not in reference to the average undocumented immigrant.

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

"When all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they weren't 'animals, ' and these people aren't either", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer tweeted.

"We are taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that's never happened before". Trump was clearly not referring to all "undocumented immigrants" as animals, as the Times' tweet suggested.

Ernest Marshall, another CNN contributor, attacked Trump based on the false meme that the President called white supremacists in Charlottesville "very fine people". "And guess what? I always will", Trump said when asked by reporters at the White House.

That's when Trump interjected: "We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in". This one, though, might be less about the President Donald Trump's words or deeds and more about our collective assumption that when in doubt, he has done or said something wrong. Many in the media desperately fear Donald Trump-not because they think he's going to deport every Mexican-American or mass-murder people, but rather because he represents, albeit in a limited way, a part of America they hate more than anything else, an aspect of the nation they thought they killed when Supreme Leader Obama won his reelection in 2012. Trump's initial remarks were met with widespread condemnation on social media by Democratic lawmakers and activists who believed he was describing all immigrants crossing the southern border.

RED's hydrogen phone with full 'holographic display' set to launch
The phone was originally slated to ship during the first three months of 2018, so it is already late to market. This means the phone can handle 2D, 2D, AR, mixed reality and VR, all without additional hardware or headsets.

Spokespeople for The New York Times, ABC News, NBC News, and CBS News did not respond to requests for comment.

Glenn Kessler, the Washington Post's chief "fact checker", promoted a thread by a Cato Institute Senior Fellow arguing that, even in context, Trump is dehumanizing "brown criminals" in "a textbook case of how dehumanizing and racist rhetoric works". In an email, the spokesperson said, "Both the headline and the story are accurate". I referred to MS 13 Gang Members as 'Animals, ' a big difference - and so true.

Trump has been under fire for comments he made Wednesday while railing against California for its sanctuary immigration policies.

During the campaign, he infamously called for a ban on Muslims entering the US.

"Mexico does nothing for us", Mr. Trump said at the meeting.
