"The report covers the first year of President Donald Trump's time in the White House", writes Vox's German Lopez, "and he's been repeatedly criticized, from his campaign to his presidential statements and tweets, of stoking racist sentiment, particularly against immigrants and refugees".

The FBI said that 7,175 hate crimes were reported during 2017, compared to 6,121 in 2016.

The FBI released the latest data compiled via its uniform crime reporting (UCR) program about bias-motivated incidents throughout the nation.

Of the more than 7,000 hate crime incidents in 2017, more than 4,000 were crimes against people, ranging from threats and intimidation to assault, to murder. That's a difference of about 1,000.

Nationally, hate crimes reports were up about 17 percent in 2017 marking a rise for the third year in a row.

"This report provides further evidence that more must be done to address the divisive climate of hate in America", ADL CEO and National Director Jonathan A. Greenblatt said in a statement.

An 18 percent increase in race-based crimes, accounting for 58 percent of all hate crimes past year.

The FBI says it will launch training for law enforcement officers on how to identify hate crimes and report the data to the federal government.

The number of hate crime incidents reported in the United States jumped by 17 percent past year, the largest increase since 2001 when the terrorist attacks of 9/11 fueled a surge in attacks on Americans of Muslim and Arab ancestry. However, the number of agencies reporting data in Kentucky only changed slightly from 405 in 2016 and to 409 in 2017.

The report, released Tuesday, shows there was a almost 23 percent increase in religion-based hate crimes.

The total number of hate crimes was the highest since 2008.

Religious-based hate crimes, in general, rose by nine percent from 2016 to 2017, encompassing reported attacks against 14 subcategories of different faiths, including a category for attacks against Atheist and Agnostic individuals.

Crimes motivated by a victim's religion constituted 20.6% of attacks, and crimes against a person's sexual orientation made up 15.8%.

"The Department of Justice's top priority is to reduce violent crime in America, and hate crimes are violent crimes", the statement read.

The new Federal Bureau of Investigation data comes less than a month after a gunman killed 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

More than half of such crimes, about 3 of 5, targeted a person's race or ethnicity, while about 1 of 5 targeted their religion. The FBI was tasked with developing procedures for implementing, collecting, and managing hate-crime data.
