President Trump delivered a stern warning to the Democratic mayor of New York City after yet another weekend of dangerous violence continued to leave American citizens in the city feeling unsafe.
“Law and Order,” Trump tweeted. “If @NYCMayor can’t do it, we will!”
As New York City continues to fall to criminals thanks to the far-left mayor’s attack on the New York Police Department, the city saw more than 30 shootings which resulted in at least 5 deaths.
Eric Adams, the Brooklyn Borough president and former NYPD captain, told the station that he is not seeing the “level of urgency that should come from the city when you have a high level of violence.”
He continued, “I would hate to believe that we’ve become immune to violence based on the geographical location and ethnicity of the victims.”
According to a report by a local Fox station, there was a shooting in every borough and the total shootings were ten times greater than the same weekend in 2019 – before the recent push to defund police.
The report indicated that since the beginning of the year, there have been 1,087 victims of shootings in the city, compared to 577 at the same time the previous year. The report also said that there have been 263 deaths in the city compared to 196 in 2019.
The Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York, which announced its endorsement of Trump last week, tweeted out about the recent bloody week in the city that resulted in 12 deaths and 69 victims.
“The reasons aren’t complicated,” the PBA tweeted. “Our city politicians have demonized us at every turn and in the process stripped us of necessary tools to get guns off the streets. When cops are left handling crime with a “light touch,” violent gangs step into the void and reign terror on NYers.”
The shootings have gotten so out of control they have even prompted far-left outlet the New York Post to run an editorial titled, “We Need Someone to Run for Mayor Who Will Save New York.”
“By the beginning of the de Blasio era, the murder rate had fallen by nearly 90 percent. Today, Gotham is plummeting at warp speed — yet it’s eminently saveable,” the editorial board wrote.
Fox Business reported Sunday that thousands of New Yorkers are fleeing the city due to a number of issues brought on by the Democrat leadership – including record apartment vacancies, coronavirus shutdowns, and skyrocketing violence.
The Hartford Courant reported that 16,000 New Yorkers switched their residences to Connecticut during the first three months of the pandemic.
This is not the first time that Trump called out a Democrat mayor over an increase in violence and unrest. While the president is simply looking out for innocent American citizens – the Democrat governors usually respond with hostility towards him as they would rather see the cities they rule over be destroyed, than accept assistance from the President which they despise so much.
President Trump is not letting up, however, as he pushes forward with his attempts to prove to the general electorate that he is the choice for those interested in maintaining law-and-order in the country.
