Music icon John Legend weighed-in on President Trump’s harsh rhetoric towards criminal MS-13 gang members Thursday night; bizarrely blaming the drug cartel’s atrocities on ‘American policy’ in the region.
The liberal celebrity slammed the Commander-in-Chief’s tough talk on MS-13 during a roundtable discussion with California lawmakers this week, calling gang members residing in American prisons “animals” who should face deportation.
“It’s much more honest and challenging to realize they were all babies once and think about what in society, their home life, etc took them from baby to violent gang member. And then to think about collective action we could take to mitigate these conditions,” tweeted Legend.
“And we should particularly interrogate the role of American policy in helping to make MS-13 the organization it is now,” he added.
