June 16, 2015, Donald Trump announces his run for president of the USA. He had been spewing hate and racism fo a few weeks already.
With the mass shootings in our country, I decided to look up some statistics. Using my own perimeters of shootings with greater than 6 deaths, I looked first at the dates of June 16, 2014 to June 16, 2015. The one year prior to Mr. Trump’s announcement. Then I looked at the same perimeters with dates from June 16, 2015 to July 8, 2016. Through that time period Mr. Trump continued to incite anger and hatred.
My findings surprised even me. I really wanted to find out that there was not a drastic spike in anger and hatred.
June 2014 – June 2015: No mass shootings with greater than 6 deaths.
June 2015 – June 2016: NINE mass shootings with greater than 6 deaths. A total of 117 deaths in shootings with 6 or greater deaths since Mr. Trump opened his mouth and said that we need to build a wall.
What a coincidence! Mr. Trump begins stirring up racism and hatred and mass shooting deaths spike drastically!
Sure, you can say it is just that people are tired of the same-o, same-o. But I see it as a direct result of Mr. Trump seeming to give informal permission to supporters to release their anger on others.
Granted, many of these shootings are terrorist acts, but stirring up anger, hatred and rasicm makes it easier for terrorists to recruit within our nation.
My conclusion: MR. TRUMP IS AIDING THE TERRORISTS IN THEIR PLANS AND IS TOO IGNORANT TO REALIZE IT.
This is extremely dangerous for our country.

One more thing: Mr. Trump (anti-immigration Trump) is only the third generation in this country, on his father’s side, second on his mother’s side. Germany and Scotland.
