Racist language like this has led to violence throughout the world’s history. No human being is an animal. We have to be better than this.https://t.co/TQ0MhJFGtq

You do not refer to human beings as animals. You just don’t.

This type of dehumanizing language is dangerous, and against everything we stand for as a country. https://t.co/YSj9WRMrTM

This is journalist, @TifaniRoberts comforting a small boy on the border. He was shot in the throat by Ortega’s thugs in Nicaragua. This little boy is seeking asylum in the United States. His name is William. Trump calls him “animal”. pic.twitter.com/avGe5mWctH

Asylum seekers "aren't people." They are "animals." This is particularly frightening language coming out of a person vested with the power of a presidential office. https://t.co/coxdWANTd0

If the leader of any other country said this, we would view it as a horrifying, authoritarian assault on human dignity. Which it is. https://t.co/9B8w338hSu

The President of the United States literally saying immigrants aren’t “human.”
This is the literal definition of the “dehumanization” which precedes genocide. https://t.co/afdi5ZLKiT

This is appalling.
This is cruel.
This is dehumanizing.
This is racist.
This is un-American.
This is Donald J. Trump. https://t.co/Z7RJj0qw6W

My father, who was welcomed by this country after surviving the Holocaust, is not an animal. The people seeking refuge and asylum in America like he did are not animals. Smart and effective border security does not involve denigrating our fellow humans. Full stop. https://t.co/rquvYIgyyx
