Trump Erroneously Credits Rise In UK Crime To 'Islamic Terror'

Donald Trump Claims Increased UK Crime Is Due To Islamic Terror Trump erroneously links UK crime rise with 'spread of Islamic terror'
Laurie Berry | 20 October, 2017, 17:17

Trump was referring to the UK Office for National Statistics' quarterly update on crime released this week.

U.S. President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday that a rise in "United Kingdom crime" over the past year took place "amid spread of Radical Islamic terror".

The Office of National Statistics bulletin makes no link between rising crime and "radical Islamic terror".

The crime report includes all crimes, including shootings, robberies and sexual offenses - which are not terror-related - according to the Guardian.

Donald Trump has been accused of ignorance after controversially linking an increase in recorded crime with the "spread of radical Islamic terror" in the UK. While improvements made by police forces in recording crime are still a factor in the increase, we judge that there have been genuine increases in crime - particularly in some of the low incidence but more harmful categories. Even with the two attacks excluded, homicides rose by 46 year-over-year.

The Muslim Ban Loses in Court Again
The ban forsakes the rules Congress has laid down and attempts to create a new immigration system of the president's own design. Watson also said the ban "contains internal incoherencies that markedly undermine its stated "national security" rationale".

Home Office data showing the number of people detained over suspected terrorism increased to 379 previous year - the highest since records began.

Trump was widely criticized for politicizing the June terrorist attack on London Bridge in which seven people died.

British members of Parliament laced into Trump for his comments, saying he is talking "nonsense", according to the Daily Mail.

"Donald Trump would be better paced looking at issues in his own country such as the huge number of deaths from gun violence which despite repeated atrocities from Sandy Hook to Las Vegas, the US government have failed to take action on", Doughty told the Daily Mail.

"The Survey remains our best guide to long-term trends for crime as experienced by the population in general".
