President Trump, a Queens native, travels to Bethpage, Long Island on Wednesday afternoon to participate in a roundtable discussion with members of law enforcement, experts, and elected officials.
The president is expected to discuss efforts to eradicate MS-13, the violent Salvadoran-based street gang.
The White House also released a fact sheet Monday morning titled "WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE VIOLENT ANIMALS OF MS-13."
The event began at 2:00 p.m. ET.
Too many innocent Americans have fallen victim to the unthinkable violence of MS-13’s animals. President Trump is fighting back to secure the safety of the American people. https://t.co/9PR7eA1HLn— The White House (@WhiteHouse) May 23, 2018
