President Trump’s Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany torched Democrats by citing rising crime statistics in America’s cities as a consequence of defunding the police.

According to The Daily Wire:

“I would like to end just by highlighting a troubling trend that I think we’ve seen play out across the country, and I believe we have a few graphics to illustrate this. It pertains to the ‘Defund the Police’ movement,” McEnany said toward the end of the press conference. “And when you look at, across the country, the ties of defunding the police with increases in violence, it’s a cause for concern. As we saw in the beginning of this administration, violent crime was starting to come down, and then bring in the ‘Defund the Police’ movement.”

“In Los Angeles, you had L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti proposing a cut of $150 million from the LAPD. L.A. Mayor Garcetti said this: ‘It starts someplace, and we have to say we are going to be who we want to be, or we’re going to continue being the killers that we are,’ was his quote, in support of the defund movement,” McEnany said in her first example. “And as a result, we saw a 14 percent rise in homicides this year over last year.”

“In Minneapolis, the ‘Defund the Police’ movement was afoot as well, with a unanimous vote in Minneapolis City and their council to dismantle the police. And you had Minneapolis City council member Jeremiah Ellison saying, ‘This is one action of many that we need to take on the road to a more equitable and just system that keeps people safe.’ In fact, it did not keep people safe,’” McEnany said for her second example. “We’ve seen a 94 percent increase in homicides compared to last year in Minneapolis.”

“And then, finally, in New York City, ‘Defund the Police’ — you had the New York City Council voting to cut police budget by $1 billion. You had Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying, ‘Defund the police means defunding the police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math,’” McEnany gave as her final example. “So it wasn’t enough for AOC. But you did have New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio saying, ‘We think it’s the right thing to do.’ It was absolutely not the right thing to do, as we’ve seen a 177 percent increase in shootings from July 2019 in New York.”


McEnany also used the press conference to slam Democrats in Congress for stalling much needed coronavirus releif.

  1. Police departments nationally MUST abandon 911 calls to homes of ALL DEMOCRATS! No protection for elected defunding scum, let someone off them. NO EMERGENCY SERVICES SHOULD BE PROVIDED TO ANY. NO AMBULANCE. NO FIRE. AND CERTAINLY NO POLICE. LET SOROS SAVE THEM OR ANTIFA OR BLM.

  2. Nature abhores a vacuum. So if you eliminate cops, then a $1,000 bounty system, for the scalps of those committing criminal acts needs to take its place!

  3. President Trump, please step in. Stop this. If you must initiate Martial Law, do so. Send in the troops. Who gives a tinkers dam what the democrats want or don’t want you to do in their state. It is OUR country, not theirs. Take leadership, before it is too late. You are the Chief in command. Do not let your advisor stop you. Later will be too late.

    1. Do you understand that martial law is the end of freedom as we know it in this country? That is the last thing that you should be wishing for. Get out the vote and defeat the leftocrats and their rino psychofants at the ballot box.

      1. Than k you Glenn, you beat me to it. Our President cannot do this, our Constitution does not allow it! No question about the answer, GET OUT AND VOTE!!!, Ideally, in person, not by mail unless using an ‘Absentee Ballot, which is legal and “should” be (hopefully) counted.

    2. You must not have a THINKING BRAIN! Martial Law is what the LibTards WANT!!! This is what they are pushing for!!!! And we DO have States Rights! It IS up to the STATES to take care of what is going on!! Don’t like what is going on? VOTE THEM OUT (in you State)!!

  4. Either these demonrats are stupid or just don’t care, because of there dirty hands in sorryass soros’s pocket. Time to arrest george sorryass soros!!!!!!👍👍👍👍👍👍 He is the cause of these filthy demonrats destruction of cities, and worldly. He’s been buying prosecutors around the U.S. Trying to get rid of good American conservitive people. WHY ISN’T ANYONE GOING AFTER HIM????? GUESS MONEY TALKS, AND B.S. WALKS NOWADAYS. BUT LETTING THIS DEMON FREE IN THE U.S. IS A DANGER TO THE WORLD. HAS AMERICA BECOME A CRIMINAL HAVEN???????????👎👎👎👎👎🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  5. defund the police, support blm and antifa and you expect life long democrats to vote for you? democrat party has gone in reverse and returning to its’ core party of slavery. geeez, they are off the democrat reservation big time. #WalkAway

    Patriots we must protect our freedom, culture and family values, no longer can we avoid recognizing the Marxist attack on our way of life, mobs showing disregard for the people by violating our Bill Of Rights & Constitution. Mobs destroying property, looting, killing by violating law and order. MSM, Dem. politicians and supporters of phony groups funding riots, defying police protection of our citizens foisting fear on neighborhoods and cities. Enough is enough get rid of these Communist/ Socialist influencers in Congress.
