KELLYANNE: Schumer, Others Owe Trump 'An Apology' Over MS-13 Remarks”

At a roundtable meeting on Wednesday about US immigration policies, including California's so-called "sanctuary law", President Trump referred to "bad people" being deported from the United States as "animals," sparking intense backlash from the everything-Trump-says-and-does-is-racist media.

Trump responded, "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".

"The president was very clearly referring to MS-13 gang members who enter the country illegally and whose deportations are hamstrung by our laws", Sanders insisted.

Any fair-minded person who doesn't assume everything Trump says is a "dog whistle" meant to send neo-Nazis into a furor knows Trump was referring specifically to MS-13, a ruthless, murderous gang that has a tremendous amount of power in California and has been the subject of conversation for Trump on numerous occasions.

Last month Pena Nieto also ordered a sweeping review of Mexico's cooperation with the USA, including in the vital areas of security and trade, after Trump ordered thousands of National Guard troops to the border following media reports on a caravan of Central American migrants crossing Mexico toward the United States.

But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended the president's comments, arguing the word "animals" didn't go far enough.

One by one, they declared that they were joining Pack 212 in northwestern Wisconsin and put on their new Cub Scout hats. The Boy Scouts's move to allow girls, announced last October, marked the organization's latest momentous policy shift.

Sanders's comments are likely to further enflame the debate surrounding Trump's heated immigration rhetoric.

"I want to ask you [this question] because so many people around the country are talking about it over the past 24 hours. If they don't reach a certain threshold, I can't tell ICE about it", she said. Complaining at the roundtable about confusion between different levels of law enforcement, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims brought up the violent gang Mara Salvatrucha, better known as MS-13.

Mexico lashed out Thursday at US President Donald Trump for saying that some migrants are "animals", calling the statement "absolutely unacceptable".

"It took an animal to stab a man a hundred times and decapitate him and rip his heart out".

A headline on the homepage of The Washington Post on Thursday morning read, "Trump refers to some undocumented immigrants as 'animals.'" The story's lede said Trump had "referred to some undocumented immigrants as 'animals.'" It wasn't until the newspaper's sixth paragraph that Trump's comments were put in the full context. An informant told police that three members of the gang took one 15-year old girl behind a home and took turns beating her with a "solid bat" 28 times. He has a storied legacy of racism, from allegedly favoring white tenants in his real-estate properties over African-Americans; to placing ads in the NY papers calling for the death penalty for five black and Latino teens who were convicted, and later exonerated by DNA evidence, of raping a white woman in Central Park; to banning people from majority-Muslim countries from entering the US; to attacking N.F.L. players for protesting police violence; to calling Haiti and African nations "shithole countries"; to showing rare restraint when it came to denouncing white nationalists in Charlottesville.
