Trump keeps claiming that the most dangerous cities in America are all run by Democrats. They arenít.

With the economy hobbled by the coronavirus pandemic and protesters in the streets targeting Americaís systemic racism, President Trump has been forced to revise his reelection strategy. What was once going to be a triumphal declaration of his effectiveness at keeping the economy afloat has been reworked as a reiteration of his 2016 run: a focus on making America great and, more specifically, on law and order.

Author is an idiot

“Most dangerous “ usually refers to top ten

That his likely general election opponent and other leaders in the Democratic Party are happy to have social structures collapse into anarchy for some unclear reason.

That is true. Who is protecting the anarchists, looters, arsonists, and thugs? The democrat leaders of these cities.

Ha haaaaa!!! Took'em long enough to pick a few cherries.

Keep it up, Mr. President. You've touched a nerve. And demonicRATS have a lot of nerve.

I’d like to thank the corrupt idiots at the Amazon Post for bringing a lot more attention to this issue.

Classic example of them wanting the reader to read the headline...and skip the data.

Did East St Louis change its ways? It seems to be missing from the list.

Even by Phillip Dump standards, this is the most mind-numbingly stupid "analysis" I have ever read.

I mean really just incorrigibly stupid.

Now those graphs do make Trumps point all by themselves. But if you take Chicago, its worse than the graphs show. We haven’t had a republican in city or county political office in quite a while. Sometimes a democrat gets in as a republican. But that is just someone taking the open republican slot. Most times the republican slot just goes empty because the Chicago press won’t allow a republican.

But if you take the west and south sides of Chicago. That 40% of the city produces 90% of the murders. So, if you did one of those per 10,000 adjustments, Chicago’s black community would leap to the top. The black community is responsible for both the democrats in power and most of the crime.

The article doesn’t really come to a point.

Maybe POTUS should say 99% of the most violent cities are ran by Demcrates?

They really ran with that story and had the balls to post that graph? lol
Then again it’s a cult.

Haha! I love those charts. They just prove the president right.

With all the lawlessness lately, people are tired of these thugs. I think the president touched on a sensitive issue, hence the Washington Post whining and moaning. The only problem is that the charts they provided only prove the president right.

not enough residents left alive to make a statistical difference — former east-sider (outlying)
