Little more than a week ago, he insisted he deserves "no blame" for what he called the "hatred" seemingly coursing through parts of the country, and outside of the White House on Friday, Trump accused news outlets of fomenting the very violence they've been asking him about.

But a nationwide review conducted by ABC News has identified at least 17 criminal cases where Trump's name was invoked in direct connection with violent acts, threats of violence or allegations of assault.

Nearly all -- 16 of 17 -- cases identified by ABC News are striking in that court documents and direct evidence reflect someone echoing presidential rhetoric, not protesting it. ABC News was unable to find any such case echoing presidential rhetoric when Barack Obama or George W. Bush were in the White House.17 cases invoking 'Trump' in connection with violence, threats, alleged assaults
this disturbing trend is unique to Trump. He's been told over and over to tone it down . Yet he continues with his incendiary rhetoric. . The scariest part is the number of instances have increased since this article was published .

What a load of crap. Ever considered the incindiary PRESS howling for Trumps blood might be causing this? The filthy PRESS has been on his back for 3 years. You think screeching hate for the President 24/7 might just set off some rotten wackos? No.Never. Not in the snivelin' Lib world.

I don't think anyone is surprised by this. Trump used those tactics along with insulting Presidential candidates and a multitude of lies to win the Presidency. And White folks ate it all up! They might as well elect David Duke as President to top him! This upcoming election is going to be an indictment of the moral character of this "I'm not racist" United States of America! You can believe that...
