Trump has always been a nut job, but as he grows older, and acquires more power, he goes further down the rabbit hole. Ultimately if this continues, and his mental faculties deteriorate further, as I predict they will, this nation might be faced with the test of invoking the 25th Amendment.

"I think my rhetoric brings people together," he said last week, four days after a 21-year-old allegedly posted an anti-immigrant screed online and then allegedly opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, killing 22 and injuring dozens of others.

But a nationwide review conducted by ABC News has identified at least 36 criminal cases where Trump was invoked in direct connection with violent acts, threats of violence or allegations of assault.

These are not invisible dots!

Perhaps evidence doesn’t matter that much to the Trump cultists, but the rest of us realize how intimately Trump’s words are linked to violence.

I highly recommend reading the articles found in any major newspaper to view the information and data. Great job by ABC for collecting the facts. Chilling.

36 criminal cases where Trump was invoked in direct connection with violent acts, threats of violence or allegations of assault.

In nine cases, perpetrators hailed Trump in the midst or immediate aftermath of physically attacking innocent victims.

In another 10 cases, perpetrators cheered or defended Trump while taunting or threatening others.

In another 10 cases, Trump and his rhetoric were cited in court to explain a defendant’s violent or threatening behavior.

Seven cases involved violent or threatening acts perpetrated in defiance of Trump, with many of them targeting Trump’s allies in Congress. But the vast majority of the cases — 29 of the 36 — reflect someone echoing presidential rhetoric, not protesting it.

This study did not include the Christchurch terrorist attack where Trump’s replacement language was prevalent in the suspect’s writings.
Like the murderer of 11 of my neighbors in their synagogue last October, the mosque shooter in New Zealand drew inspiration from the rise of white nationalism in America. His 74-page manifesto posted online hailed Trump as a symbol ‘of renewed white identity and common purpose'.


***ABC News could not find a single criminal case filed in federal or state court where an act of violence or threat was made in the name of President Barack Obama or President George W. Bush.

Words matter, why are you denying it? Trump has much to do with the epidemic of white supremacist killings and the rise in hate crimes.

We know most blacks are murdered by other blacks. We also know most blacks oppose Trump.

I guess anti-Trump rhetoric gets blacks to murder other blacks.

Trump is tough when the need calls for it (like when hateful Leftists are trying to shout over him at his speeches and rallies) and he is equally compassionate when it is appropriate (when there's a tragedy or sad incident).

Don't you just love how the Leftist haters isolate only certain events without context to try to make Trump out to be violent?
