trump's latest authoritarian push is to have the "Justice" Department classify NYC, Seattle, and Portland as "anarchist jurisdictions." This despite the fact that
  • NYC is 111th in violent crime
  • Portland is 116th
  • Seattle is 82nd
Clearly trump does not want to send his thugs to cities such as St. Louis where violence is actually a problem. Wouldn't fit his narrative.

It was just red meat for the base, meaning say something stupid and the idiots will cheer.

That was 2 years ago, where do you think those cities will rank once 2020 is complete? Around the same? Much higher? Much lower?

In an odd juxtaposition, while whining that the Defund the Police movement is ill advised the Trump administration now threatens to DEFUND THE POLICE. The Defund the Police movement was always a poor choice of language as its proponents did not actually mean Defund the Police. However the Trump administration actually means to DEFUND THE POLICE.
