Democratic Senator Chris Murphy went on CNN and blamed President Trump’s rhetoric for the Islamic attack in Manchester. Apparently the President’s ‘rhetoric’ is what turns Muslims into terrorists and not the religion itself.
“The fact of the matter is, in many countries in Europe, England included, Muslims suffer a de-facto segregation, which sometimes allows for these perversions of Islam, this radicalization, to take root, and we have to make sure that we don’t allow that to happen here,” said Murphy.
“And so, many of us are worried about some of the rhetoric of the Trump administration, because we worry that that combined with robust online recruitment might end up in an attack like this happening in the United States,” said Murphy.
“We can never be 100% protected as a country, and, you know, we do need to remember here in the United States that there have only been on average a couple of people a year who are killed in terrorist attacks. You are much more likely, in this country, over the last ten years, to have been killed by a falling object than you are by terrorism,” said Murphy.
“So, I think we want to right-size the threat here in the United States, while recognizing that we all need to step up our efforts to make sure that something like that doesn’t happen here,” said Murphy. Check out the video below.
