President Trump apparently thinks pigs have helped discourage Islamic-related terrorism in the past.

President Trump on Thursday appeared to imply the way to stop Islamic-related extremism is to shoot terrorists with bullets coated in pigs’ blood.

After all, that’s what U.S. Gen. John “Black Jack” Pershing did to wipe out terrorism in the Philippines in the early 1900s, and a Trump tweet Thursday referred positively to that history:

Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught. There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!

One problem is, there’s no evidence it’s true.
