Today’s quote comes to us from President Trump.
Speaking last night at another jam-packed rally, this one in Evansville, Indiana, Mr. Trump referenced the demands by many Democrats (with virtually no opposition from what little is left of the “moderate Democrat” contingent) that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) be abolished.
He said this:
“If you want to summarize the difference between Democrats and Republicans, just remember this, Democrats want to abolish ICE.
“Where did this come from? By the way, do you have any idea what ICE does?”
“These are people that go into a nest of MS-13. It’s a nest. These are evil people in there. This is a group of gang members.”
“I can’t say animals anymore because Nancy Pelosi got very angry when I called them animals,. I called them animals and she went crazy. I can’t do it. I can’t call them animals. Even though they have guns, but they don’t like using guns because it’s not painful enough. They want to slice people up. Young girls walking home from school, 16 years old. And they sliced them up. They died. They died. Their parents are incredible people. I met their parents, devastated. And the reason because it was more painful. And then I call them animals and Nancy Pelosi gets upset because I’m talking about ‘human beings.’ They don’t get it.”
Oh, in case you’re wondering what Ms. Pelosi said that prompted this quote, here it is:
“So when the President of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, ‘These aren’t people, these are animals,’ you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?”
As you can see, Pelosi conveniently left out the fact that Trump’s comment was not generalized toward all illegals, but specifically directed to gang members….just as she, and other Trump haters (including many in our media) have spent years conveniently leaving out the fact that President Trump did not call all Mexicans rapists.
President Trump wins Quote Of The Day honors for reminding us of how important ICE is to the safety and well-being of our citizens…
…especially Latino citizens, because – and I hope the irony is not lost here – since MS-13 gangs operate mostly in Latino neighborhoods, it stands to reason that they are the most endangered population segment…
…just as Black citizens are most endangered by the gangs that operate in primarily Black areas (check the Chicago shooting statistics, see for yourself).
As for Nancy Pelosi? The fact that she perverted the horrors of MS-13 into some cheap political blather sickened me to my stomach when she said it last May, and sickens me just as much now.
