Democrat politicians, alleged journalists, and far-left activists spread a deceptively edited video clip from last year that they falsely claimed showed President Donald Trump calling immigrants and asylum seekers “animals,” when, in fact, he was referring to members of the notoriously hyper-violent MS-13 street gang.
A Twitter user named Mark Elliott posted the following tweet on Friday with the caption: “.@realDonaldTrump on people asking for asylum ‘These aren’t people. These are animals.'”
Elliott got the video from a CSPAN tweet, which he embedded in his own tweet. The video that CSPAN deceptively edited does not give context to whom Trump is referring to when he says, “These aren’t people. These are animals.”
