On Wednesday, during a roundtable discussion, Trump outraged many after he referred to some undocumented immigrants as “animals.”
Trump stated, “We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in, we’re stopping a lot of them, but we’re taking people out of the country, you wouldn’t believe how bad these people are.”
He added, “These aren’t people. These are animals, and we’re taking them out of the country at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy.”

On Thursday, Trump Jr. was quick to defend his father.
Trump Jr. tweeted, “Weird what happenes (sic) when you take out the first sentence specifically talking about MS-13 gang members. Not surprising that you would conveniently ignore that but I would think your readers deserve the truth not your chosen narrative. How does this even pass for “journalism”?”

Social media was not happy about Trump Jr’s defense and blasted him for it.
What the hell do you and your family know about truth.

Sometimes people end up as criminals due to their upbringing and who they associate with. Surely you, of all people, get that.

Which part of “your father is a racist” don’t you understand?

You do realize that MS-13 originated in the US, right? And that you don’t erode the human and civil rights of all to catch a few. It would be like rounding up all you white men every time a white guy sexually assaults a woman. And we know you wouldn’t want that…..

Did you just call your own father “Trump”?
You people are so bizarre.
