Donald Trump Stoked Fear That Democrats Will Outlaw Vans And Trucks To Combat Terror
Type: Fear MongeringMay 05 2018 Severity: Targeted: Democratic PartyAbout: Mass Shootings & Gun Control
Donald Trump attacked Democrats desire for new gun control legislation by mockingly pointing out that some terrorists are resorting to using vans and trucks to conduct their attacks, something that is technically true but doesn't have anything to do with Democrats desire to enact new gun control legislation to try to prevent the next mass shooting at a school or public venue.
Quote | The comment came after numerous terrorists have used vehicles to conduct attacks.
“We are going to have to outlaw immediately all vans and all trucks [if Democrats take control of Congress], which are now the new form of death for the maniac terrorists … so let’s ban immediately all trucks, all vans, maybe all cars. How about cars? Let’s not sell any more cars.”
