Trump erroneously links United Kingdom crime rise with 'spread of Islamic terror'

Trump erroneously links United Kingdom crime rise with 'spread of Islamic terror'”

The UK's Office for National Statistics published on Thursday a report detailing a 13 percent increase in crime as reported by police, at the same time as 35,000 residents of England and Wales found citizens reporting a nine percent decrease in crime.

The report revealed a 13 per cent rise in recorded crimes, with a surge in knife crime, which had risen 26 per cent year-on-year, and a 19 per cent increase in sexual offences.

Donald Trump has caused controversy by linking a rise in United Kingdom crime to the "spread of radical Islamic terror".

The US President appeared to link recent crime figures to the spread of the ISIS related terror as Britain suffers under a wave of attacks in 2017.

The ONS said the rise was largely due to the London and Manchester terror attacks, where police recorded 294 attempted murders. "In latest Twitter outburst United States president makes terror link even though annual crime figures record all police-recorded offences", the award-winning two-century old newspaper points out.

Figures indicated that jumps in violent crime, sexual offences, knife crime and credit card fraud were significant factors.

Terror offences have also risen by 60% after attacks in London and Manchester. "But while it is clear that much of the rise in police-recorded violent offenses is due to better recording, we know that some of this increase is likely to be genuine, which is why we have taken urgent action to stop these crimes and keep our communities safe", Newton said.
