Starnes to Pelosi Over Trump 'Animals' Criticism: 'I Wish She Had as Much Compassion' for Kate Steinle
Fox News Radio's Todd Starnes reacted to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi ripping President Donald Trump for calling MS-13 gang members "animals."
Pelosi (D-Calif.) said there is a "spark of divinity" in every person and that by Trump making the remark about other human beings during a roundtable at the White House calls into question whether he believes in that ideal.
"I wish that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats had as much compassion for the families of those loved ones killed by illegals on American soil as she does for MS-13," Starnes said on FBN's "The Evening Edit."
Starnes said Pelosi did not offer such an outcry after fellow San Franciscan Kate Steinle was murdered by an illegal immigrant felon.
Elizabeth MacDonald noted that Mexico's Secretary of Foreign Affairs also criticized Trump for the "animals" remark.
"President Trump referred to some immigrants [as "animals"]. Perhaps he had criminal gangs in mind... In the opinion of the Mexican government, this is absolutely unacceptable," Luis Videgaray said, according to MacDonald.
Starnes also dismissed Videgaray's criticism.
