New York City Mayor Eric Adams defended President Joe Biden against Republican crime criticism.
Adams retorted that Republicans have not always supported law enforcement funding and
asked Democrats to strengthen their argument.
"Democrats appeared soft on crime. Yeah, soft on crime is the Republicans who refused to put money in his
crime bills to give our police force resources "Adams stated on MSNBC's Inside with Jen Psaki's premiere.
Adams, a former policeman, prioritizes fighting crime.
He advised Biden and Democrats to emphasize their anti-crime stance.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot became the first incumbent to lose reelection since 1989,
shocking Democrats. Many observers attributed her loss to crime.
