Our so-called president uses bully tactics and fear-mongering to get his way.
Here he talks about how many very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country.
In a country, where more people were killed in 2016 by toddlers with guns than by terrorists, I have to say that the danger of being killed by a terrorist in my mind is about the same as the danger of being hit by lightning or, in deference to Betsy DeVos, the same as the danger of being mauled by a grizzly bear.
Checking monthly tourism statistics, I found a chart that shows the number of non-residents entering the United States in the first 7 months of 2016 (through July):
This shows there were over 21 million people who “poured into our country” and I am sure a few of them were “bad hombres.”
770,388 came from the Middle East, and another 308,658 from Africa during that period.
The only United States terrorist attack during that period that I remember was the San Bernardino bombing, and that was perpetrated by a couple that lived and worked in the United States.
No travel ban would have stopped them.
What Trump is doing here is fear-mongering for the ultimate end of grabbing political power for himself. It’s right out of the playbook for dictators. Keep the people in a fear frenzy.
How do they expect us to treat them with any respect?
Don’t we ever learn?
And that’s my rant today about our so-called president.
