Trump Makes Terrible, Unfounded Claims About Pershing Square's Namesake, Again

Trump Makes Terrible, Unfounded Claims About Pershing Square's Namesake, Again

The United States President again referred to Pershing in the wake of the Barcelona terror attack, tweeting: "Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught".

Less than an hour later, Trump posted another tweet, alleging that "radical Islamic terror" was behind the incident, while referencing John "Black Jack" Pershing, an Army general who led the US military and governed Moro province in the Philippines in the early 1900s. "There was no more radical Islamist terrorism for 35 years ".

Trump was referencing the discredited story of how Pershing executed 49 Muslims with bullets that had been dipped in pig's blood during the Philippine-American War of 1899-1902.

The story has been found to be unsubstantiated by numerous fact-checkers in the media.

Trump repeated the story on multiple occasions at campaign rallies in 2016, telling the apocryphal story of a violent response by Pershing to the acts of "50 terrorists who did tremendous damage and killed many people".

"And the 50th person, he said, 'You go back to your people, and you tell them what happened, '" Trump said.

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has sent out media invites for the launch event on October 16 to be held in Munich, Germany. That being said, the Huawei Mate 10 could also ship with Android 8.0 O on board with Huawei's latest EMUI skin on top.

US President Donald Trump on Friday said the world must use "whatever means necessary" to stop "radical Islamic terrorism", after twin attacks in Spain killed at least 14 people. Police later shot dead five suspects after a second vehicle attack in the coastal town of Cambrils, around 130 kilometres from Barcelona.

"When I make a statement, I like to be correct". Pershing, as Trump told a SC rally, was a "rough guy, rough guy" fighting terrorism in the early 1900s.

Within about an hour, Donald Trump-who at first refused to renounce the white supremacist domestic terrorists who murdered a woman in Charlottesville last weekend, and who then angrily renounced his tepid follow-up renunciation two days later-took to Twitter to offer up the requisite condolences, followed closely by. this.

Mr Trump's first tweet about the attack in Spain said the United States "condemns the terror attack" and "will do whatever is necessary to help".

They were having terrorism problems, just like we do. Trump tells Spain: "Be tough & strong, we love you!" He took 50 bullets and dipped them in pig's blood [which is considered haram]. Yes, he mentioned 25 years of prosperity last year, which contradicts with his latest claim of 35 years. "I want to know the facts".

"Even if the tale is true, the pacifying effect that Trump claims is nonsense", said Michael H. Hunt, an emeritus historian interviewed by Politifact According to him, the Moro province "remained in constant unrest during the period of American rule and into the period of independence, right down to the present". And the USA evidently did bury some people killed in fighting in the region with the bodies of pigs to discourage them from attacking American soldiers.
