Donald Trump has become known for so-called "alternative facts" which are, to everyone else, lies, half-truths and delusions. In Hillary Clinton's terms, they are what happens when she "mis-speaks." But in his first speech to the US Congress, that is the combined Houses of Representatives and the Senate, Trump wheeled out some numbers. Some, such as that "nearly 4,000 people were shot last year alone" are startling. To realise that that was in just one US city, and that not one that has a reputation for violence, is frightening. Were the numbers right? Prepare to go from startled, to frightened to terrified.
