President Donald Trump will appear in Bethpage, NY today for a roundtable discussion on immigration, law enforcement, and gang violence. The event is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. ET.
Trump is likely to address MS-13 during the roundtable, seeing as he’s railed against the gang over the last few days. Trump recently drew criticism for dehumanizing criminal aliens as “animals,” though he says he will not stop using that characterization, and there was a commotion because of how certain media outlets took his words out of context.
Since Trump has been fixated on the subject so far today, it’s possible he will also take the opportunity to speak about the alleged “SpyGate” scandal against him. Trump cried “witch hunt” again as he went off on the Russia investigation, James Clapper, the “criminal deep state,” the FBI, and just about everything else tied to the allegations that the FBI spied upon his 2016 campaign.
While the FBI reportedly had an informant who took note of the Trump campaign’s dubious characters and links to Russia, there has not been any solid evidence produced yet to back up Trump’s claims.
