In Response to Trump’s Claim, El Pasoans Tweet the REAL Dangers in El Paso
During his State of the Union address on Tuesday, President Trump tried to sell America on his big, beautiful wall by claiming El Paso’s low crime rate is a direct and immediate result of our longstanding border wall.
Meanwhile in El Paso, we were all surprised to learn we had once lived in such a violent and lawless city. His misinformed declaration, however, was great fodder for some social media snark.
Two Twitter hashtags in particular made for hilarious smartphone reading: #themostdangerousthingaboutelpaso and the similarly titled #mostdangerousthingaboutelpaso. They're funny cause they're true.
