The left wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) — linked to globalist billionaire George Soros — says President Trump is “racist” and “dehumanizing” MS-13 gang members when he describes them as “animals.” Last week, during a roundtable discussion on sanctuary cities, Trump described the members of the El Salvadorian MS-13 gang as “animals,” a reference to their violent crime history of torturing, beheading, raping, and beating innocent Americans to death. Immediately following Trump’s remarks, the establishment media and Democrats came to the defense of MS-13 gang members, as Breitbart News reported. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defended MS-13 by saying Trump needed to “recognize” that every person has a “spark of divinity” in themselves. Likewise, SPLC has continued defending MS-13, now claiming that Trump’s attack on the gang is “racist” and “dehumanizing.” It is unacceptable for such racist, dehumanizing language to now be repeated 10 times on the White House website in a document that speaks for America. pic.twitter.com/U5yfT33BX6 — Southern Poverty Law Center (@splcenter) May 21, 2018 “This kind of rhetoric is unacceptable from anyone. For it to come yet again from the mouth of the president is dangerous,” the organization wrote. SPLC is tied to Soros’s Open Society Foundation

Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World,” House Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un should understand President Donald Trump was “serious about the punitive measures” when offering his reasoning for canceling the June 12 North Korea-U.S. summit. Meadows said, “Well, if I was North Korea, I can give them a real message, having spoken to the president a number of times and knowing him, he’s serious about making a deal, but he’s also serious about the punitive measures. He will not blink.” On House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) criticisms of the cancellation, Meadows said, “Nancy Pelosi says that but this is the same Nancy Pelosi that says he’s going to cut a bad deal, he’s going to go no matter what. You can’t have it both ways. This president and Secretary Pompeo know how to negotiate, and yet at the same time, China is going to have to determine who they’re going to deal with. I believe in the end, they know it’s better to align with the United States than the North Korean dictator.” (h/t Grabien) Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
