Raul Reyes, who frequently appears on CNN, attacked the president for his rhetoric surrounding illegal immigrants, falsely suggesting that Trump called immigrants an "infestation."
The president used that word when he was discussing cities that were overrun with MS-13 gang members, whose motto is "kill, rape, control."
When we have an “infestation” of MS-13 GANGS in certain parts of our country, who do we send to get them out? ICE! They are tougher and smarter than these rough criminal elelments that bad immigration laws allow into our country. Dems do not appreciate the great job they do! Nov.— Donald J.

"What do you do when, certainly, the last Republican president fought for, sought and it's not ideal but had 44% of Latino voters," Wallace said. "So politically powerful inside the last Republican administration. President Obama used the power of the presidency to try to pass comprehensive immigration reform, with the Latino community, Latino leaders, at the table."
"You now have a president, as you said, talking about exterminating Latinos," Wallace falsely claimed.

This is where the mainstream media is now in the age of Trump. Making incredibly false claims like this, with the intent to fearmonger, while facing zero repercussions.
You have to be a special kind of hack to make an outrageous comment like this. And you know what? That's exactly what Nicolle Wallace is. https://t.co/TEKiDI3Jec— (((Jason Rantz))) on KTTH Radio (@jasonrantz) August 6, 2019
