LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Former President Donald Trump predicted the chance of a "major terrorist attack" in the United States.

Addressing the crowd in a Commit to Caucus Rally in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday, January 27, the Republican frontrunner claimed, "There's a 100 percent chance that there will be a major terrorist attack in the United States. Or many attacks maybe."

"And it's all because of what's happened over the last three years."


The former President made the remarks in light of the skyrocketing number of undocumented immigrants entering the US crossing the southern border. Claiming the illegal migrants enter the country without any checking or vetting, Trump added that they came from mental institutions and prisons.

"Terrorists are pouring in unchecked from all over the world. We have more terrorists now," he said, indicating the number increased after President Joe Biden entered the White House.

Leading the GOP primary polls and cementing his chances to be the party nominee with wins in Iowa and New Hampshire, Trump has weaponized the border crisis to attack Biden.

Recent reports also suggested the former President has been actively lobbying the GOP Senators to kill an emerging bipartisan border deal to prevent the incumbent's victory.

Donald Trump vows to send reinforcements to Texas to secure its border

In the speech, heavily focused on border security amid the ongoing escalation in Texas, Trump underscored the need to support the southern state.

"When I'm president, instead of trying to send Texas a restraining order, I will send them reinforcements," Trump told a cheering crowd.

"Instead of fighting border states, I will use every resource, tool, and authority of the US president to defend the United invasion that is taking place right now."


Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott and President Biden recently engaged in a feud when Abbott blocked an illegal migrant entry point with razor wire. The Supreme Court intervened, blocking Abbott's move and leading to a standoff between the state and the US government.

Trump, the clear frontrunner, has used the escalation to his advantage in Nevada ahead of the caucus on February 8.

The presidential hopeful, however, avoided talking about his defamation trial loss on January 26, where a Manhattan jury ordered him to pay $83.3 million to E Jean Carroll for defaming her in 2019.

Internet reacts

Netizens mocked Trump's prediction, questioning if he was suggesting an attack like January 6.

One user remarked, "Like January 6th?"


Another user opined, "He is desperately hoping that this happens."


"He can send the terrorists some very threatening tweets to stop them," a third user added. Another response read, "Is this the part of the movie when the bad guy tells everyone of their master plan?"



A fifth user wrote, "He is cornered and he is going to get his followers to do something. Wow. Projection friends."


"Like the one in 2021?" questioned one user. Another remark read, "So, he wants a terrorist attack, the economy to crash and he doesn’t want the house to pass the border bill that the senate is negotiating. Why does trump hate America?"
