Kim Kardashian is going head-to-head with Donald Trump … with statistics.
Kim Kardashian is trying to show the threat of Islamic terrorists to Americans pales in comparison to American-on-American gun violence.
On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that temporarily bans any refugees from entering the U.S., indefinitely bans refugees who hail from Syria and temporarily bans citizens from several Muslim countries from entering the U.S.
She posted a screen grab of a chart with stats generated by the CDC to her 49.8 million followers which shows over the last 10 years. Islamic jihadist immigrants were responsible for 2 murders per year.
By contrast, armed toddlers kill 21 people per year. Lawnmowers kill 69, and falling out of bed kills 737 annually. The biggest number, 11,737 are caused by Americans shot and killed by their fellow citizens.
Kim Kardashian has some insight into the plight of refugees as she is a descendant of people who were forced to flee their country.
The star’s tweet was a surprise to many followers – particularly after her husband, Kanye West, visited Donald Trump at Trump Tower in the days following his election. Kim and Kanye had voted differently in November’s Presidential election, but she said she “respects her husband.”
