As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by Breitbart:
The Washington Post declared it has disproven President Donald Trump’s claim that “the 20 most dangerous cities are Democrat-run” by affirming that 17 of the 20 most violent have Democrat mayors.
Columnist Philip Bump began by quoting Trump claiming “the 20 most dangerous [cities] are Democrat-run”:
Trump has repeatedly lifted up a statistical factoid, as he did during an event at the White House on Wednesday. “You hear about certain places like Chicago and you hear about what’s going on in Detroit and other — other cities, all Democrat run,” he said. “Every one of them is Democrat run. Twenty out of 20. The 20 worst, the 20 most dangerous are Democrat run.”
The article goes on to state the following:
In his analysis, Bump pointed to an FBI list of the 20 cities with the most violent crime, the top 10 of which all have Democrat mayors[.]
The next ten cities included two independent mayors (San Antonio and Las Vegas), and one had a Republican mayor (Jacksonville).
Out of the top 20 cities with the most violent crime “per 10,000” people, according to Bump, only Springfield, Missouri doesn’t have a Democrat mayor. Springfield’s mayor is Ken McClure, Nonpartisan.
So even the Washington Post unwittingly agrees with Trump that the most dangerous cities with highest rates of violent crime are, in fact, run by democrats (and 1 independent). Including photo of their graph for those who can’t access it. (cont.)https://t.co/RvcMVXwvHJ pic.twitter.com/MzKtCsRQQi
