For the last two years, New York has seen a significant surge in violent crime. From 2019 to 2021, violent crime increased in New York City by more than 100 percent. The crime wave in New York sees no sign of abating, as violent crime has continued to proliferate in the first few months of 2022.
The city has recorded a 41% increase in major crime rates in 2022 compared to last year, with a 60% increase in February compared to the previous year’s same month.
New York’s Attorney General Letitia James seems far more focused on generating press on CNN with her phony, corrupt witch hunt against President Trump than addressing the bloodbath in her state’s biggest city.
Today, President Trump released a statement eviscerating James for ignoring her own state’s many problems while pursuing a politically charged prosecution against President Trump.
“With the horrible Subway Shootings and Violent Crime in New York being at an all-time high, where people are afraid to walk the streets, the racist and highly partisan Attorney General of New York State, failed Gubernatorial candidate Letitia James, should focus her efforts on saving the State of New York and ending its reputation as a Crime Capital of the World, instead of spending millions of dollars and utilizing a large portion of her office in going after Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization (for many years!), who have probably done more for New York than virtually any other person or group, including employing many wonderful people and paying millions and millions of dollars in taxes.
This never-ending Witch Hunt must stop. We don’t need racist political hacks going after good, hardworking people for highly partisan political gain. The people of our Country see right through it all, and won’t take this Radical Left “sickness” anymore. Make New York Great Again!”
