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

"Donald Trump would be better paced looking at issues in his own country such as the huge number of deaths from gun violence which despite repeated atrocities from Sandy Hook to Las Vegas, the US government have failed to take action on", Doughty told the Daily Mail.

'I think we've seen over and over again that President Trump has no empathy for those who serve overseas in our wars, who have been captured like John McCain, or those who have been killed or the families of those who have been killed, in the case of Gen. Kelly, ' he said.

Stephen Doughty, another Labour Party member of Parliament, told the Daily Mail that Trump should focus on crime issues in the U.S.

THE FACTS: The 13 percent increase cited by Trump refers to crime in England and Wales, not the entire United Kingdom, which also includes Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The UK Office for National Statistics (ONS), in its quarterly update on crime statistics on Thursday, reported a 13% increase in all police-recorded offences across England and Wales.

The report did note that outlying incidents affected the murder rates, including the mass attacks in London and Manchester as well as the re-classification of the deaths of 96 football fans at the 1989 Hillsborough disaster as victims of manslaughter.

Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to blame a recent spike in United Kingdom crime on the "spread of Islamic terror" - despite the Office for National Statistics (ONS) making it clear last year's increase in crime was not related to terrorist incidents. "The 13 percent increase is neither caused nor explained by terrorism, and it's misleading to suggest so". Significant increases were also reported in thefts from individuals, burglary and robbery. However, terrorism did contribute to a 59 percent increase in attempted murder cases, according to the office.

The sweep of raids following attacks in Westminster, Manchester and London Bridge, coupled with the rising number of threats being thwarted, led to a two thirds increase in suspected extremists being detained. That compares with the 226 arrests in the previous year.
