Democrats in D.C. are running from the truth about the nation’s skyrocketing crime rates. When confronted by a reporter, they refused to answer any questions and quickly ran away. It’s clear that they have something to hide, and the people of D.C. deserve to know what it is. Get Ready.
In Washington, D.C., Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell questioned Democrats and Republicans about rising crime rates.
Representatives Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY) were among the Republicans who responded to Caldwell’s request for solutions.
When he approached Democrats about the crime situation, many of them fled.
Caldwell approached Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) during his interviews, but he refused to speak with him because he was “in a rush.”
In addition, Caldwell approached Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) and asked, “Senator, any reaction to the crime crisis in America?”
After that, Caldwell confronted Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).
She was speaking at an event about the far-Left’s efforts to cancel student debt when Caldwell asked her, “Any reaction to the rise in violent crime across the country which is impacting students?”
Finally, Caldwell tried to question Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) about her repeated calls for law enforcement to be defunded. He Asked, “Any reaction to rising crime in America?” She refused to respond.
I find it abhorrent to see them run, since according to the CDC, the United States now has the highest homicide rate in modern history.
According to preliminary data released by the National Center for Health Statistics, the US homicide rate rose 30% between 2019 and 2020. In modern history, it is the largest increase in homicide recorded – and confirms a rise in homicides previously identified only by crime statistics.
According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, there were 21,570 murders total in 2020, up from 16,425 murders estimated in 2019. The NCHS did not provide a final number of homicides from 2020.
