FACT CHECK: Does This Image Show A Fox News Broadcast Saying That White Women Are A Threat To World Peace?

A Facebook photo allegedly shows a Fox News graphic depicting the ranking of the “greatest threat to world peace” as determined by a German survey. The purported graphic lists white women as the greatest with 41%.
“The Germans know a thing or two about threatening world peace,” the post reads. (RELATED: Did A Fox News Executive Producer Say This On A Hot Mic?)

A Fox News spokesperson confirmed in an email to Check Your Fact that the graphic was not broadcasted by the outlet.
The genuine poll results were reported by DW News, a German news outlet. The results show Trump in the lead with 41%, with other leaders including North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei placing well behind.
