The report stated that much of the increase may be due to changes in the way crime statistics are recorded.

"Just out report: 'United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror.' Not good, we must keep America safe!" he posted on Twitter Friday morning.

"The 13 percent increase in police recorded crime from the previous year reflects a range of factors including continuing improvements to crime recording and genuine increases in some crime categories, especially in those that are well-recorded", the report read.

He appeared to tie the report to his efforts to restrict travel into the United States, tweeting, "we must keep America safe!"

But murders and attempted murders attributed to terrorism represent well under one per cent of the crimes cited in yesterday's report, almost all of which have no link to extremism.

The second set of figures is produced the Crime Survey for England and Wales, which asks 38,000 people whether they have experienced crime in the previous year, regardless of whether it has been reported to police.

The trend of rising violent crime is not unique to the UK.

However, the increases reported in those crimes are a tiny proportion of the overall crime in the United Kingdom, which increased by 13 per cent.

Jo Swinson, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats, had this to say: "Stop misleading and spreading fear. Donald Trump would be better placed looking at issues in his own country such as the huge number of deaths from gun violence".

ONS said that rise is due largely to the London and Manchester terror attacks, where police recorded 294 attempted murder offenses.

According to the ONS, there were 6,696 firearms offenses throughout the whole of England and Wales from 2016-17.

"Today's figures suggest that the police are dealing with growing volume of crime", John Flatley, the head of crime stats at ONS, said in a Thursday statement. During the London Bridge attack in June, it took AFOs eight minutes from the initial emergency call to find, locate. and kill the three marauding attackers.
