Trump clarifies 'animals' comment

United States President Donald Trump denied on Friday reports he called illegal immigrants "animals," stating he was referring only to members of the criminal MS-13 gang.

"Fake News Media had me calling Immigrants, or Illegal Immigrants, "Animals." Wrong! They were begrudgingly forced to withdraw their stories. I referred to MS 13 Gang Members as "Animals," a big difference - and so true. Fake News got it purposely wrong, as usual!" the president tweeted.

Trump made the remarks while holding a roundtable discussion with California state officials on immigration this Wednesday.
