Blinkered viewpoint, though.

Not so much when the focus of the story is on killings perpetrated on American soil and how it corellates with Trump's Muslim entry bans and his business interests.

Crap table.

The ban is disgusting and stupid.

However, if you were a moronic xenophobe who had inexplicably been elected president, you'd probably choose to ban the people from countries where your nationals had been killed THERE a lot as well as at home and you'd be interested in the last 2 years the MOST, not ignore it. This table is exactly the kind of repackaged nonsense that Trump himself uses. I don't approve.

Ah, I see. So to counter a political stunt by Trump, we're pointing out that statistically Saudi citizens are more of a threat to Americans as Saudi-born terrorists carried out their attack over American soil rather than Scotland, so he should be banning them instead? The first misstep is believing Trump is doing this because he thinks it will actually be an effective solution. He's really just posturing, and it shouldn't matter which countries he picked to point out why he's in the wrong.

As I say, blinkered viewpoint.

It's far easier, as Eth/RTT say, to simply denounce the order as horrifically xenophobic and disgusting. No need to try and tweak stats on this one.
