Crazed Trump Thinks That Terrorists Are Coming from Canada, Mexico to Attack the US

DEBUNKED: Trump’s little anecdote about how to solve terrorism is completely made up. Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. (The Young Turks)

The President’s mental instability is showing itself more regularly, as Trump warned America that Homeland Security and law enforcement on the lookout for terrorists entering the US from Mexico and Canada.

Trump tweeted:

Homeland Security and law enforcement are on alert & closely watching for any sign of trouble. Our borders are far tougher than ever before!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 18, 2017

On the most basic level, this was Trump trying to use the attack in Barcelona to distract from his wide range of scandals at home. A deeper look reveals a President who appears to have no idea where terrorists come from, and he continues to deny who they are.

The vast majority of terrorist attacks on US soil come from right-wing extremists.

As Think Progress noted, “But more importantly, foreigners pose less of a threat to Americans than right-wing extremists on domestic soil. In a 2015 New York Times article, University of North Carolina Professor Charles Kurzman and Duke Professor David Schanzer found that Islam-inspired terror attacks accounted for 50 deaths since 9/11, but that ‘right-wing extremists averaged 337 attacks per year in the decade after 9/11, causing a total of 254 fatalities.'”

Trump is trying to whip up an imaginary threat of terrorists coming across US borders because he doesn’t want to talk about the fact that the real terrorists are people who support him. If this were a political tactic, it would be disgusting, but as the nation is realizing, Trump believes what he is saying. He thinks that he is getting the country prepared to stop an invasion of terrorists.

The President is not mentally well, and his policies reflect a crazed person who divorced from all reality.
