Following the Thursday terrorist attack in Barcelona, which killed at least 13 and injured over 100, former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump tweeted out two glaringly different messages.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack which involved a van driving through a crowd of people. Following the initial attack, two other incidents involving vehicles ramming into crowds occurred in Spain.
Trump is referring to a rumored tactic of shooting Muslims with bullets dipped in pigs' blood or burying them with the bodies of pigs. For a period of time, many believed Gen. John J. Pershing employed such tactics following the Philippine-American War.
However, there is no evidence to support this claim and Snopes, a website that fact-checks rumors, declared it to be false.
