Trump Lies About German Crime Rate, Warns Immigrants Will ‘Infest’ US

President Donald Trump lied about the crime rate in Germany being up 10 percent on Twitter in order to push his border policy, which includes separating immigrant children from their parents and imprisoning them in camps. Trump also warned about immigrants infesting the U.S.

CBS News noted Trump’s lie:

Trump’s claim that crime is up in Germany is objectively false. Crime actually fell in 2017 by 9.6 percent in Germany, with violent crime falling 2.4 percent, according to Germany’s Federal Criminal Police Office.

Also, crimes by non-German suspects fell by 22 percent in 2017. By any measure, Germany has far less violent crime than the U.S.
