Two reports show fewer incidents of Muslim extremism in 2017

To hear it from the Trump administration, Muslim extremists pose the greatest risk to Americans today.

Shortly after a judge blocked his ban on travelers from mostly Muslim countries, President Trump tweeted that “many very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country.”

The president’s National Security Strategy, issued last month, identifies “jihadi terrorists as the primary transnational threats Americans face.”

And just this week, the administration released a report attempting to link immigrants to terrorism, a report The New York Times, the Daily Beast, the Intercept and others called “misleading.”
