Defund the police rhetoric has led to a spike in crime in cities around the country.
The Democrat-led messaging has cut police funding and empowered criminals.
Now, an 80-year-old former Senator has been injured, and former President Donald Trump has weighed in.
“Former California Senator Barbara Boxer was savagely assaulted and robbed yesterday in Oakland, where they defunded the police,” Trump said. “Our once great cities, like New York, Detroit, San Francisco, and so many others, have become a paradise for criminals because of Democrats. We must give power back to police or America will never be safe. We cannot let Communist Democrats destroy our great cities. If we don’t stop them, our communities and our Country will be lost forever.”
The statement came after Senator Barbara Boxer was assaulted and robbed in Oakland.
“Earlier today former Senator Barbara Boxer was assaulted in the Jack London Square neighborhood of Oakland. The assailant pushed her in the back, stole her cell phone and jumped in a waiting car. She is thankful that she was not seriously injured.”
This kind of violent crime has been on the rise as fewer officers have been on the streets in many cities.
Trump went on to blast the media for their coverage of the rise in crime.
“The fraudulent nightly network newscasts have devoted ZERO minutes to crime recently, even though crime is eating away at our cities and our Country,” he said. “They don’t want to talk about it because it will hurt the political narrative of the Communist Democrats. Today, it is the least secure in our history with criminals illegally flooding into our Country—many spreading COVID into our communities—and other Countries’ prisons being emptied into our neighborhoods. America needs law and order, not defunding the police. We need our police back. America should and can be safe!”
