Trump Makes Up Murder Stats to Push for More Government Power

(Before It's News)

This would be another disappointing statement from the President. Violent crime rates are going down and have for a long time. A big part of this is because America is much better armed than it once was. An armed society, as they say, is a polite (and less murderous) society.

Mr. Trump appears to be laying the foundation for more federal money for local cops. This would be a mistake. Cops and the federal government should remain as separate as possible.

(From Mises)

Donald Trump appeared deeply confused this week as the president declared today that “the murder rate in our country is the highest it’s been in 47 years.”

Perhaps Trump confused the word “highest” with “lowest” since he would be far closer to the truth if he said the homicide rate in the US is “the lowest it’s been in 47 years.”

On the campaign trail, Trump repeatedly claimed that crime and murder rates are at historic highs in spite of all evidence to the contrary.
