Watch Al Franken define Trump actions as terroristic and then pulls back (VIDEO)

"Jake Tapper is quick on his feet and heard the connection that Al Franken was making between what terrorists do and what the Trump administration is doing."

"Al Franken: I agree with Senator McCain and Senator Graham that, actually, this kind of ban is — makes us less safe, because it gives a recruiting tool to ISIS and to other jihadists saying that America is anti — is anti-Muslim. The Syrian refugees, they are fleeing terror. This — you know, terror is — the whole point of terror is to make you afraid.
Jake Tapper: Right.
Al Franken: I think that Trump and his group are trying to make Americans more afraid. I think that’s part of how they got elected: Just make us more afraid.
Jake Tapper: You’re accusing the president — president of terrorism by making — by scaring people?
Al Franken: Just because the purpose of terrorism is to make you afraid and the president has tried to make people afraid doesn’t mean he’s involved with…
Jake Tapper: Right. OK. I just wanted to define the language. That’s all."
Many people especially people of color are in fact petrified. They see the writing on the walls. Trump is attempting to make Americans afraid of the other. From his Muslim ban based on a false assertion that terrorism is growing in the U.S, a provably false statement to the fallacy that there is a crime epidemic, to the statement that crime is a huge growing problem in America, also provably false.
