WATCH: Trump Calls Undocumented Immigrants ‘Animals’

In a White House meeting focused on attacking sanctuary cities President Donald Trump Wednesday afternoon called undocumented immigrants "animals."

"We have people coming into the country – or trying to come in, we're stopping a lot of them," Trump told attendees, including Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "But we're taking people out of the country – you wouldn't believe how bad these people are."
