Donald Trump and his campaign team believe the President is well positioned to win re-election…Read More →
Democrats hope that the civil unrest, riots and rising murder rates sweeping American cities turns the public against Donald Trump.
The left got some bad news on that front.
Kayleigh McEnany stood up and made this promise that terrified Democrats.
As Great American Daily reports:
On Sunday, President Trump highlighted the culture of violence and lawlessness Democrat mayors foster by tweeting that Chicago saw 67 people shot and 13 people killed.
The President offered federal assistance to quell the violence.
“Chicago and New York City crime numbers are way up. 67 people shot in Chicago, 13 killed. Shootings up significantly in NYC where people are demanding that @NYGovCuomo & @NYCMayor act now. Federal Government ready, willing and able to help, if asked!” the President tweeted.
In Atlanta, 22 people were shot over the holiday weekend with four people – including eight-year-old Secoriea Williamson – killed.
New York City saw 63 people shot over the weekend compared to 21 at the same time last year.
This wave of violence was a clear result of Democrat mayors siding with Black Lives Matter rioters and demonizing police.
In an appearance on Fox News, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany blasted Democrats for their lack of action in protecting their citizens by pulling back on law enforcement.
“Where is the outrage for these victims?” McEnany told Fox News. “And in fact, what you’re seeing is when you have this outspoken attitude against police, this defund of the police movement, $1 billion taken from the police department in New York … you see a pulling back of law enforcement. We’ve seen those mass retirements in New York that ultimately leads to the kind of violence that we see in the streets.”
McEnany used Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announcing over 100 million dollars in cuts to the police budget followed by the city seeing a 100 percent increase in homicides as a result.
“I mean, we saw in LA when there was an announcement about funding being pulled from LAPD, we saw an increase in homicides, it was over 100% increase. So, there are real consequences. We need outrage for these victims and for these horrid incidences of violence that we are seeing that should not be taking place in our streets,” McEnany added.
Led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar, Democrats are adopting the Black Lives Matter goal of defunding the police and smearing cops as racist killers out to hunt unarmed black men.
Black Lives Matter is getting their wish.
And in cities across the country, violence is spiking as criminals run roughshod over the streets after Democrats reined in the police.
