Kelly, are we supposed to be this much out of touch? Are we permitted to QUOTE TRUMP or do we have to deal with your PRETENSE of what he actually said?

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems.…They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.”
And now to the ACTUAL “animals” remark from a few days ago.
THE PRESIDENT: It’s a disgrace. Okay? It’s a disgrace.
SHERIFF MIMS: It’s a disgrace.
THE PRESIDENT: And we’re suing on that, and we’re working hard, and I think it will all come together, because people want it to come together. It’s so ridiculous. The concept that we’re even talking about is ridiculous. We’ll take care of it, Margaret. We’ll win.
SHERIFF MIMS: Thank you. There could be an MS-13 member I know about — if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about it.
THE PRESIDENT: 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.
Trump absolutely did not refer to MS-13, he was going on about all deportees. His statement (he was not answering a question) makes that quite clear. Or else he has English as a second language.
BTW, there’s a lie tucked in there too. The lie about “rate that’s never happened before”. Obama deported at a far higher rate. Yet another Trump lie.
