Shockingly almost 100% of grooming victims are horses.

The bit where Trump clumsily tries to link the two.

The increase in crime in the UK has no bearing on the safety of US citizens in USA.

The increase in radical Islamic terror in the U.K. has a minuscule bearing on the increase in crime in the UK

Trump should concentrate on US gun laws if he’s actually bothered about keeping Americans safe
These tweets are diversions, in the meantime, the stealthy actions go unnoticed by the public.

Either Trump is ignorant or playing political games. There is no excuse for either.

He's actually breaking twitters T's and C's, so they should block his account
While he is obviously wrong in his interpretation of the statistics, I wonder if he would have still been condemned if he had quoted the true figure of 2%? It might be a small figure compared with 13%, but it’s still significant

Definitely. Statistical studies prove that all Brexit voters are racists.
Why is this guy allowed to spew out untruths, and then bleat on about "fake news"?
This is the leader of the most powerful nation on Earth.
You'd think he'd have a little dignity and all these tweets are beneath him given his position.
He comes across as an internet troll with an audience.

Stick him in a straight jacket and portable padded cell already and drop it in an ISIS stronghold.
He'll really be tweeting himself then.

They wouldn't take action when he threatened North Korea with violence (via a tweet), citing something about being publicly relevant or of interest to the public or something.
So doubt they'd care much now.

Any connection made between the increase of crime in the UK and radical Islam should be condemned as their is no basis for it.

It's quite possible that the Donald could have 7 years left. American presidents normally get reelected lol.

I mean arggh, i hate to be that guy but we have seen the highest number of deaths due to terrorist attacks in a long time in the UK this year, so the crime statistics do reflect this, especially in stabbings for obvious reasons, with London seeing the greatest jump. So if one were to super over simplify and bang your into a brick wall 'til brain damage set in you can see where Trump got this stupid idea from. Though it really is a stupid idea.

He got elected doing this and it isn't doing him any harm atm with his "base".

The people who elected him are going to be very reluctant to stop supporting him as they will be admitting they were played by a conman. When their lives dont change for the better they will blame the establishment, the GOP etc and not Trump.
I’ve ignored Trumps tweets for a while now. He’s all mouth and no brain (I still wonder why America elected him).

Apart from the radical Islam link.

Trump probably watched something on Fox News. Given the shocking lack of journalistic integrity on that shite channel we should be worried.

Don't forget Trump personally has defeated ISIS in 9 months. The Whitehouse has been a little slow in admitting that ISIS affiliates killed 4 US soldiers at the beginning of the month in Niger.......

Because there are large parts of the USA in the middle that have suffered greatly from globalisation. Trump has promised them a return to the 1950s. It obviously won't happen.

He has not made a link between the two, in fact the wording he uses makes clear they are separate issues (crime rate and the spread of terror caused by islamic terror)

Of course crime in the UK has an effect on US citizens, there are hundreds of thousands of Americans living in the UK and i would imagine a multiple of that visiting as tourists and for business.

He did not say that radical islamic terror had any impact on the crime figures.

The UK and US are allies, both members of NATO (for now) and both have been influential in the "War on terror" like it or not any security problems in this country has a direct knock on effect on the US.

No doubt you will also argue that "keep America safe" has no connection to what he said earlier in the tweet lol.

Just out report: "United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror." Not good, we must keep America safe!


He talked about America, not Americans. Statistically Americans visiting U.K. would be safer. We don’t have anywhere near the same crime rates as the US. Granted an American would have more chance of getting caught up in a radical Islamic terror attack in the U.K. than in USA, but that not what he said.


So what is he implying when he talks about keeping America safe?

Whats your take on the word amid

I can't assume what he is trying to imply that would be impossible but an example could be, "Our allies in the UK are seeing a huge rise in their crime figures and are also dealing with islamic terror offences spreading, this is not good and we have to learn from their experiences to keep America safe"

Trump is right. It's far too dangerous for him to come here. He should cancel his trip immediately. Keep Great Britain safe.

Don't know where you're getting your info from but it's far from being just muslim men. And Muhammeds footsteps? What's that all about? He had no connection with this sort of activity. Don't blindly believe everything you are told - people have hidden agendas. Happy comments from a happy mind.
