President Trump mocked Nancy Pelosi during a speech Tuesday, saying that the Democratic House Minority Leader ‘came out in favor of MS-13’ after the media claimed Trump’s description of the murderous gang members as ‘animals’ was racist.
“Just the other day, Nancy Pelosi came out in favor of MS-13. That’s the first time I’ve heard that,” the President said during his speech at the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life organization.
“She wants them to be treated with respect, as do other Democrats. That’s not going to be happening. We’re not going to release violent criminals into our country.” the President added.
Referring to the Democratic party, Trump added “They don’t want walls, they don’t want other people stopping.”
“We will be appealing to voters all across America who previously sent a Democrat to Washington only to discover they elected a proxy vote for Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi,” Trump added.
“These are people that don’t believe in borders, don’t believe in fighting crime, don’t believe in a strong military.” the President said.
Last week, Pelosi defended the MS-13 gang, founded by Salvadoran immigrants,
“’These aren’t people, these are animals,’” Pelosi said, quoting the president, then adding “You have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity – the dignity and worth of every person? ‘These are not people, these are animals’ – the president of the United States.”
Unbelievable… Pelosi straight up defending MS-13.
