*Donald Trump is making waves again as he posted a factually inaccurate tweet by a white supremacist on Monday (Nov. 23).
Detailing the tweet, Gawker reports it features a black gangbanger pointing a gun at a chart comparing murder rates between whites and blacks in America.
According to the chart, 81 percent of whites were killed by blacks, compared to 97 percent of blacks killed by blacks, a stat the site labeled “patently false” and “race-baiting.”
And to no one’s surprise it turns out, the information in Trump’s tweet really is false. 2014 crime statistics from the FBI state that 82 percent of white homicides are committed by other white people, while black offenders account for just 14 percent of white homicides.
News of Trump’s inaccurate tweet comes amid him urging supporters to physically remove a Black Lives Matter activist at a campaign rally he was at last weekend in Birmingham, Alabama.
