BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – New York City Mayor Eric Adams stated that fellow Democrat Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s election defeat last week should serve as a “warning sign for the country,” rejecting criticism that he is feeding into the Republican narrative on crime in addressing public safety concerns in the Big Apple.
“Public safety is a prerequisite to prosperity. Same as Chicago, like New York, and many of our big cities across America,” Adams said during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“We democrats are not soft on crime, as many republicans have alleged,” explained Adams. “We just don’t believe in tossing criminals into prison that have emphatically stated that they don’t want to be there.”
