WATCH: CNN Anchor Compared President Trump’s Campaign to MS-13 — Now She’s Facing Backlash

CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota came under fire over the weekend when she compared President Donald Trump’s campaign to the violent gang MS-13 while making a point about FBI informants.

Drawing a parallel between the idea of FBI informants in MS-13 and President Trump’s claims that his campaign was spied on, she asked Matt Schlapp, “You believe that the FBI planted a spy in the Trump campaign. Are you using the term informant and spy interchangeably?”

“When the FBI uses a source in MS-13 to find out what they’re doing is that a spy or a source, an informant to figure out what MS-13 is doing?” she continued.

Watch:

“Look if you’re going to equate, I would call it spying,” Schlapp responded.

“Hold on, so they’re spying on MS-13,” Camerota said. “Do you want the FBI to try to figure out when somebody is doing something untoward?”

“Donald Trump is not MS-13, Alisyn!” Schlapp shot back. “MS-13 is a gang that creates havoc in our society. Donald Trump was the duly nominated Republican candidate.”

The anchor and the network faced backlash from social media users for the segment:

President Trump has been lamenting on Twitter about what he calls a “spy” placed in his campaign to help Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election and has bashed intelligence officials for using an informant, calling it the biggest scandal in years:

    This kind of so-called journalism from Camerota is probably why she was fired or let go of from “FOX” – she’s always been pathetic with her work – like Megyn Kelly, they overdo it & get information all twisted like their own mindsets! Just another dummy would be Juan Williams using a bad slur when he was with NPR & they let him go! Then Bill OReilly hired him at FOX –He meant well, but I for one don’t care for the way Juan sees things FBD= Full Blooded Democrat–they hate Our Wonderful President & honestly I don’t care! Just venting!
