Since local Democrats embraced the “defund the police” idea, violence and crime have surged in major cities. In some places, riots have been raging for nearly two months. President Trump has been forced to send in federal troops to quell the madness. Democrat leaders, in response, demand the federal forces to leave. This is how Trump is responding.
It’s the same song being played every day. More news comes in that cities like Portland, Chicago, Atlanta, New York, and Los Angeles suffer an unprecedented rise in crime. Some have been overrun by radical anarchists that destroy businesses and homes or set up “autonomous zones” downtown. Law-abiding citizens are in danger every day. But what are their mayors and governors doing?
Oh, right, they are slashing police budgets and closing down crime-fighting units!
Have the Democrats gone totally insane? People are literally dying in the streets and they make sure cops can’t do a thing. “Peaceful” protesters are destroying their cities and Democrats call it a good thing. When Trump has no choice but to send in federal forces, just to stem the bleeding, Democrats actually want them gone.
Several big-city mayors that have seen upticks in violent crime and escalating clashes between police and protesters are demanding federal agents be withdrawn from their cities — and any plans for more federal deployments be halted…

This is how insane Democrats have gotten. They sat back and let their cities become hellholes. Then, when the federal government steps in to do their job (of saving American lives), these Democrats demand them gone!
What kind of idiots are these people? Do they really think local residents are happy with their leadership? Look at the list of cities. These are all major hotspots for violent crime and rioting since early Summer. Yet their majors are doing the exact opposite of what needs to be done to keep Americans safe.
Trump, in response, is promising more federal agents.
President Donald Trump suggested he will dispatch federal agents to more major cities in the United States to protect federal property and suppress violent riots…
“I’m going to do something, that I can tell you because we are not going to let New York and Chicago and Philadelphia, Detroit and Baltimore and all of these – Oakland is a mess. We’re not going to let this happen in our country,” Trump said, adding that the cities are “all run by liberal Democrats.”
… “These are anarchists, these are not protesters. People say protesters, these people are anarchists. These are people that hate our country and we are not going to let it go forward.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Don’t be fooled. Democrats let the chaos spread, because they wanted Trump to send in troops early. They were hoping he’d go overboard, so they could accuse him of being a tyrant. Instead, he waited, expecting local Democrats to actually do their job. When they refused, he sent in small groups of federal forces to strategically shut down Antifa and other criminal groups.
Democrats’ complaints are falling on deaf ears. They are letting anarchy reign in cities they swore to protect. They can write as many letters as they want, they’ve already lost. They refuse to protect their cites and expect Trump to do the same. Democrats would rather see children killed, than do their jobs.
If they thought this was a strategy to win November, they really must be taking crazy pills. All law-abiding Americans will rush to the polls to reelect Trump, just to send Democrats a message.
