President Donald Trump is responding to continued criticism of his “animals” comment by scolding the press for taking his comment out of context.

On Wednesday, Trump himself did not specify that he was only talking about only gang members when he made the comment during a roundtable about sanctuary cities, saying “these aren’t people, these are animals, and we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.”
