President Donald Trump referred to undocumented immigrants whom his administration has deported as “animals” (more video below).
During a roundtable discussion about sanctuary cities, Trump stated:
We’re taking people out of the country, you wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people, these are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and a rate that’s never happened before.
Trump also called U.S. immigration laws the “dumbest” in the world, and falsely claimed Democrats were responsible for his policies that break up families:
Those are the bad laws the Democrats gave us. We have to break up families. Democrats gave us that law. It’s a horrible thing we have to break up families. They don’t want to do anything about it.
