White House press secretary Sarah Sanders strongly defended comments from President Trump calling MS-13 gang members "animals".
"If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, they're more than welcome to," she said. "Frankly, I don't the term that the president used was strong enough. MS-13 has done heinous acts."
"It took an animal to stab a man 100 times and decapitate him and rip his heart out," she added. "It took an animal to beat a woman they were sex trafficking with a bat 28 times, indenting part of her body. And it took an animal to kidnap, drug and rape a 14-year-old Houston girl."
