President Trump on Friday came to Long Island to rail about street gangs, singling out the ultra-violent MS-13.
“We’re going to restore safety to our streets and peace to our communities, and we’re going to destroy the vile criminal cartel MS-13 and many other gangs,” Trump told an audience of law enforcement officers.
“MS-13 is particularly violent. They don’t like shooting people because it’s too quick. It’s too fast,” trump said.
“I was reading one of these animals was caught and [was] explaining they like to knife them and cut them and let them die slowly because that way it’s more painful. And they enjoy watching that much more. These are animals.”
Trump spoke at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood.
The venue is close to where MS-13 has committed a string of gruesome murders, including April’s massacre of four young men.
