President Donald Trump has used charged words like "invasion," "aliens," "killers," and "criminals" hundreds of times while discussing immigrants during his campaign rallies, according to a USA Today analysis of 64 rallies since 2017.

The analysis posted Thursday showed Trump has used the word "invasion" at least 19 times, "animal" 34 times, and "killer" nearly three dozen times at the rallies.

Together, Trump has used the words "predator," "invasion," "alien," "killer," "criminal," and "animal" at his rallies while discussing immigration more than 500 times, the analysis showed.

More than half of those blasts came in the two months before the 2018 midterm election, the analysis found.

The president has also used "the hell out of our country" at least 43 times during his rallies. In virtually all of those cases, he was referring to immigrants in the country illegally, the analysis showed.

"The use of repetition – a propaganda mainstay – points to an intention by Trump to impose a way of thinking about his designated targets," Ruth Ben-Ghiat, a history professor at New York University who has studied propaganda, told USA Today.

Trump has rejected the idea his words have inspired violence, and has accused those raising the criticism of trying to score political points ahead of the 2020 election.
