WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump has described some migrants as “animals”, in a charged discussion about the border wall and law enforcement.
“We have people coming in to the country, or trying to come in,” Trump told California Republicans visiting the White House, “we are taking people out of the country.” “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are, these aren’t people, these are animals and we’re taking them out of the country.”
Trump’s remarks came after comments on migration and law enforcement, so-called “sanctuary cities” for immigrants, and the MS-13 gang.
US president discloses payment to attorney who paid off porn star
President Donald Trump has formally disclosed that he reimbursed his personal attorney more than $100,000 last year, apparently in connection with the payment of hush money to a porn star, government records show.
The disclosure caps a series of contradictory statements from Trump and his representatives on the scandal swirling around lawyer Michael Cohen – which has widened to ensnare major corporations and a Russian oligarch.
The documents released Wednesday by a US government ethics body do not specify the reason for the payments to Cohen, who paid $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 election.
