The Biden campaign has been criticized for sharing misleading information on social media in an attempt to discredit President Trump. This time, they posted a video clip that took Trump’s words out of context, making it seem like he was referring to all illegal immigrants as “animals.” However, the clip conveniently left out the part where Trump was specifically talking about migrants who had been convicted of murder.

The video fails to include important background information from the preceding moments, during which the 45th president was addressing the arrest of an illegal alien in connection with the murder of Laken Riley:

“Just a few weeks ago I met with the grieving family of Laken Riley.”

He added that she was “barbarically murdered by an illegal alien animal.”

“Democrats said please don’t call immigrants ‘animals.’

“I said, ‘no, they’re not humans, they’re animals.’”

In his address, Trump highlighted recent incidents where young Americans lost their lives at the hands of illegal immigrants who entered the country through Biden’s unsecured Southern Border. One such case he brought up was the tragic death of 25-year-old Ruby Garcia, reportedly killed by an illegal immigrant who had been deported in 2020 but managed to return to the U.S. under Biden’s administration. The Trump administration, as well as numerous conservative voices, criticized the Biden campaign for failing to provide the complete context of the statement.

“Why is the Biden campaign constantly jumping to the defense of bloodthirsty illegal alien murderers who killed American citizens?” Team Trump posted on X.

“President Trump was clearly speaking of Laken Riley’s killer here.”
