White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway slammed those critical of President Trump’s use of the term “animals” to describe MS-13 gang members Thursday, saying politicians who “rushed to judgment” owe Trump and gang violence victims “an apology.”
Conway called out the liberal lawmakers on social media, saying they took his words out of context to make it appear as if he was referring to all immigrants as “animals,” not specifically 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,” she tweeted.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed the President on twitter Wednesday night, comparing “our great grandparents” to MS-13 gang members; apparently unaware the President was referring to jailed criminals residing in American prisons.
When all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they weren’t “animals,” and these people aren’t either.
