The Independent reports:
Donald Trump compared immigrants to a treacherous snake that bites its host as he commemorated his 100th day as President.
Mr Trump read the lyrics of Al Wilson’s 1968 song “The Snake,” in which a woman takes an ill snake into her home only for it to bite her once it has recovered. He also paused to point out to his audience it was a metaphor for “the border.”
During his speech to a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Mr Trump dedicated his recital to Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly and anti-immigration agencies.
Trump's reading of The Snake as a sitting US President was shameful. Terrifying normalization of hate pic.twitter.com/Oqdzzo3FM5
