TRUMP STRIKES BACK: The President Trashes ‘FAKE NEWS’ for Twisting ‘Animal’ Remarks

President Trump unloaded on the mainstream media Friday morning for twisting his remarks regarding MS-13 gang members, saying the “Fake News Media” got it “purposely wrong as usual.”

The Commander-in-Chief took to twitter to vent his frustration hours after multiple news outlets claimed he referred to “all immigrants” as “animals,” apparently unaware he was directly referring to criminal MS-13 gang members residing in American prisons.

“Fake News Media had me calling Immigrants, or Illegal Immigrants, ‘Animals.’ Wrong! They were begrudgingly forced to withdraw their stories. I referred to MS 13 Gang Members as ‘Animals,’ a big difference – and so true. Fake News got it purposely wrong, as usual!” tweeted the President.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats jumped on the media’s bandwagon within minutes, defending the gang members while questioning President Trump’s faith in “divinity.”
