Democrat Governor Blames Trump For Crime Spike

He cannot be serious right now…

Just when we thought New York’s leadership couldn’t possibly get any worse, Governor Andrew Cuomo is now trying to blame President Donald Trump for the whopping spike in crime in his state.

According to Breitbart, in his most recent press conference, Cuomo stated, “Crime up in New York City? Yes. Crime is a problem. Crime is a problem. I said it first. Crime is a problem. The looting was a problem. The tension between the police department and the community is a problem. I took the most aggressive action in the United States of America. Every local government that has a police department has to come up with a new, collaborative process to work through the relationship between the police and the community, and they have to pass a law embodying that plan, and they have to do it by August, or they don’t get any funding from the state of New York. Nobody’s been more aggressive. But yes, crime is an issue in New York City. True.”

Cuomo then said, “Now, the genesis of the crime, you can have a great debate about, but the Trump economy, Trump not providing COVID relief, [the] George Floyd murder, Trump’s response to the George Floyd murder, race relations stress, Trump, there are good people on both sides, Ku Klux Klan. So, I think Trump has some liability for the increase in the crime.”
