As former President Donald Trump arrived in New York in preparation to answer the indictment from Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg set for Tuesday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams issued a deluded message to Trump supporters.
“Control yourselves. New York City is our home, not a playground for your misplaced anger. We are the safest large city in America because we respect the rule of law in New York City,” Adams said.
“And although we have no specific threats, people like Marjorie Taylor Greene, who is known to spread misinformation and hate speech, says she’s coming to town,” the NYC Mayor added.
“While you in town be on your best behavior. As always, we will not allow violence or vandalism of any kind. And if one is caught participating in any act of violence, they will be arrested and held accountable no matter who you are.”
Mayor Eric Adams may have a misplaced warning.
Adams is directly targeting Trump supporters with a message which suggests he’s dealing with some sort of violent fringe group heading to NYC to cause trouble.
But the opposite is true.
The majority of Americans, not just Trump supporters, are outraged by Democrats’ abusing the rule of law while targeting a political opponent simialr to a bannana republic.
Of course, we never saw any warning from Adams to BLM/Antifa, who actually did cause violence and damage to many cities throughout 2020.
Besides, has Adams forgotten that New York City has progressive DAs like Alvin Bragg allow violent people out of jail?
Perhaps he should be more concerned about NYC’s soaring crimes than a few peaceful Trump supporters.
Trump’s arraignment in front of Judge Juan Merchan is scheduled for 2:15 p.m.
The proceedings are expected to take 15 to 30 minutes.
Trump is likely to be fingerprinted and have a mug shot taken, legal experts have said.
However, the former president is unlikely to be handcuffed due to an arrangement between Trump’s legal team and the district attorney’s office.
