President Donald Trump spent a brief moment this afternoon demanding everyone take a step back and behave more civilly. He took it a step further during his Wisconsin rally Wednesday.
Just after the 60-minute mark since taking the stage, Trump accused Democrats of releasing violent gang members and members of MS-13 into American communities. The hyperbole is not only factually inaccurate, but it also violated the call he made less than an hour earlier.
“Democrats even support sanctuary cities that release violent gang members,” he said. “You see predators. I use that; some people don’t like it when I use that name.”
He went on to herald ICE for breaking up “nests of gangs.” Saying they “go into these nests like it’s a day at the office.”
When stepped up to the microphone Wednesday night, he told everyone in the country to come together.
“We want all sides to come together in peace and harmony. We can do it. We can do it. We can do it. It will happen. More broadly there is much we can do to bring our nation together,” Trump said.

Rush Limbaugh admits his attacks on Obama were ‘bogus’ as he attempts to defend Trump
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh admitted that Republican fear-mongering over the federal deficit under President Obama was “bogus,” while defending the deficit's explosive rise to $1 trillion under President Trump.
During Limbaugh’s show on Tuesday, a caller suggested that Republicans should nominate a young fiscal conservative instead of Trump, citing the rising deficit. Limbaugh dismissed the concerns, declaring that fiscal conservatism was basically a sham all along.
George Takei opens up about being held in an internment camp — and his views on Trump
At a time when comic books are regularly adapted into superhero movies, George Takei's new graphic memoir "They Called Us Enemy" involves heroes who would also work wonderfully on the silver screen. To be sure, the main characters don't wear colorful costumes or use superpowers, but they are heroes nonetheless — and what they do, in the face of evils no less than those posed by fictional villains, is pretty super too.
Joy Reid says Trump ‘pulled a full Charlottesville’ by ‘fanning the flames’ of racism and ethno-nationalism
MSNBC anchor Joy Reid blasted President Donald Trump's racism during her opening segment while hosting "The Last Word" on MSNBC on Friday.
"That didn’t last long. Having read the talking points crammed into his hands by nervous Republicans for almost an entire day, Donald Trump pulled a full Charlottesville, praising his supporters who chanted 'Send Her Back' to attack Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) at his North Carolina campaign rally as 'incredible patriots,'" Reid reported.
"Yep, 24-hours-ago, Trump -- per those nervous Republican talking points -- claimed that he disapproved of the racist chant about congresswoman Omar and even tried to stop it," she said. "He got nice headlines that claiming he was disavowing the chant from some of the news media who indulged in the false balance tick of pretending whatever the president said is true and it’s a given fact."
