FBI Director Christopher Wray said that the bureau has made "about the same number" of domestic terrorism arrests as international terrorism arrests so far this year and that a majority of domestic cases are motivated by white supremacy.

..."We live in a world where the neo-Nazis and white supremacists are taking lives in many places," (Senator) Durbin said. "The reason I raise this is because there is a concern that this is not being taken as seriously as it should be as one of the real threats in our country."

Wray defended the FBI's handling of domestic terrorism cases, saying that the agency takes the issue "extremely seriously" and are "aggressively pursuing it." He added that so far this year the FBI has already made more domestic terrorism arrests than in 2018.

According to Wray, the FBI has made about 100 arrests related to domestic terrorism in the first three quarters of 2019. That is roughly equal, he said, to the amount of arrests related to instances of international terrorism like ISIS or Al-Qaeda.

"I will say that a majority of the domestic terrorism cases we've investigated are motivated by some version of what you might call white supremacist violence," Wray told lawmakers.

This is only logical ...... statistically speaking of course.

I shouldn't need to explain why.

Incidents have increased under Trump because they feel they are sanctioned by open approval from the highest office. There is no denying hate incidents have increased dramatically since 2016.
