Eerie clown sightings across the United States have put many Americans on edge. While presidential candidates have addressed matters regarding immigration policy and economics, clown sightings have grown at an alarming pace.
On his Twitter account, Donald Trump has vowed to put an end to this scare. “We need to round these guys up and try them in court,” tweeted Trump. He continued by criticizing the Obama administration: “How hard can it be to find a bunch of clowns? These guys are luring children into the woods, and Obama hasn’t done a thing to address this issue.” Trump likened the clown issue to Obama’s lax immigration policy, stating that “he’s even letting clowns into this country.”
Reports originated in in Greenville County, S.C. in August, where children told their parents they had observed clowns in the woods. Greenville Police Chief Ken Miller attended a news conference on Sept. 1, where he stated “It’s illegal. It’s dangerous. It’s inappropriate, and it’s creating community concern so it needs to stop.”
