Update: Trump Cited As A Motivating Factor In 81 Murders And 6 Terrorist Plots – The Intellectualist

Lest anyone get too comfortable believing that words don’t matter and Donald Trump’s nativist rhetoric is merely a political “nothing burger,” it is worth noting that the President of the United States has been directly cited as motivation for violent acts in at least six terrorist plots and 81 murders.

Not all of these incidents were successful, but the intent to harm was real for each and every one.

At a time when his rallies carry chants of “Send her back!” as Trump targets a sitting U.S. congresswoman, let us remember the people who took his words to heart and moved forward with action.
