Clinton Criticizes Republicans’ Focus on Crime
As leftist policies rip through American communities, Hillary Clinton says it’s the Republicans who aren’t concerned about crime. Let’s pray.
From National Review. Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton on Thursday suggested Republicans are “not concerned about voter safety, they just want to keep voters scared.”
The former Democratic presidential candidate told CNN This Morning that the GOP’s focus on crime as a major midterm issue is just an effort “to gin up all kinds of fear and anxiety in people.”
“They are not dealing with it. They are not trying to tackle it. So I view it as an effort to scare voters,” she said.
Clinton said crime is a legitimate concern for voters but claimed Republicans “don’t want to solve a problem, whether it is crime, inflation or anything else, they just want an issue.” …
Clinton is set to stump for New York gubernatorial candidate Kathy Hochul on Thursday. Crime has become a major issue in Hochul’s race against Representative Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.)
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, while stumping for Zeldin last week on Long Island, called the state’s crime problem “totally self-inflicted.”
“You cut police budgets, you do things like eliminate cash bail, and you have rogue prosecutors who won’t even enforce laws that they disagree with,” he said. “Of course you’re going to have streets that are less safe.” …
Earlier this month, two people were shot outside Zeldin’s Long Island home while his 16-year-old daughters were in the house alone.
Zeldin said Saturday: “You want to know why this is so important to me, to fight crime? These two girls were at home doing homework at their kitchen table when my house just three weekends ago became the site of a drive-by gang shooting.”
