President Donald Trump blasted New York Attorney General Letitia James Monday for failing to fix New York’s crime problem while continuing her “witch hunt” into the Trump family and Trump Organization.
Trump wrote in his statement:
“With the horrible Subway Shootings and Violent Crime in New York being at an all-time high, where people are afraid to walk the streets, the racist and highly partisan Attorney General of New York State, failed Gubernatorial candidate Letitia James, should focus her efforts on saving the State of New York and ending its reputation as a Crime Capital of the World.”
The Empire State has been suffering from a huge outbreak of criminal activity over the past year, especially in New York City.
According to Fox News, New York saw an increase in crime of 58.7 percent in February over statistics from the same month last year.
Letitia James has drawn significant criticism from the 45th president for using her position to attack Trump, his family, and his business instead of addressing her state’s pressing issues.
James once told the American people, “What is fueling my soul right now is Trump.” She also claimed her job was suing Trump, saying, “I look forward to going into the office of attorney general every day, suing him, and then going home.”
In his statement, Trump explained that instead of concentrating on crime, James is “spending millions of dollars and utilizing a large portion of her office in going after Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization.”
Emphasizing the need to prioritize crime over political investigations, Trump urged, “This never-ending Witch Hunt must stop.” He added, “We don’t need racist political hacks going after good, hardworking people for highly partisan political gain.”
Commenting on James’ use of her office to smear his legacy, Trump said, “The people of our Country see right through it all, and won’t take this Radical Left ‘sickness’ anymore.”
In true Trump fashion, the 45th president ended his statement, saying, “Make New York Great Again!”
Trump also wrote an Easter message for James, quipping, “Happy Easter to failed gubernatorial candidate and racist Attorney General Letitia James. May she remain healthy despite the fact that she will continue to drive business out of New York while at the same time keeping crime, death, and destruction in New York!”
