    Last Wednesday on December 12, France was struck with a terrorist attack that resulted in five people dead and around a dozen wounded. As a result of the attack, Trump seized on this as an opportunity to promote his border wall. This is the latest example of Trump using fear in order to push his political agenda.

    “Another very bad terror attack in France. We are going to strengthen our borders even more,” Trump tweeted early Wednesday morning.

    The U.S president previously pointed to international terrorist incidents and used other fear tactics to bolster position for more border security. Donald Trump is currently fighting with Democrats for more funding. His comments on Wednesday referred to shooting near a popular Christmas market in the French city of Strasburg. At least 2 people were killed and the suspect was said to be born in France.

    White House spokesman, Hogan Gidley, had stated that Trump has briefly talked about the incident. However, Trump would not say whether it was terrorism.

     Donald Trump frequently cited terrorism during his run-up to the midterm election for the rebuild of the wall on the southern border. However, there is scant evidence that terrorists are among those seeking entry to the United States. Regardless, Trump seems to jump at the chance to blame terrorists for America’s immigration issues.
