Trump Blasts DC Mayor as ‘Incompetent’ After She Demands Federal Police and Military Be Removed From City
June 6, 2020 | by admin
President Trump just blasted Washington D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser as incompetent after she demanded that all federal law enforcement and military be removed from her district.
“The incompetent Mayor of Washington, D.C., @MayorBowser, who’s budget is totally out of control and is constantly coming back to us for ‘handouts’, is now fighting with the National Guard, who saved her from great embarrassment over the last number of nights. If she doesn’t treat these men and women well, then we’ll bring in a different group of men and women!,” Trump said in a series of tweets.
Bowser penned a letter to the president on Thursday asking that he “withdraw all extraordinary federal law enforcement and military presence” from the city, noting protesters had been peaceful and that the D.C. police department did not make any arrests on Thursday night.
“Since Home Rule, we have developed a finely wrought system of coordination with federal partners, and we will continue to work with them to ensure the safety of demonstrations. We are well equipped to handle large demonstrations and First Amendment activities,” Bowser wrote in the letter to Trump.
The D.C. mayor also expressed concerns about unidentified law enforcement patrolling the streets in the city.
“The deployment of federal law enforcement personnel and equipment are inflaming demonstrators and adding to the grievances of those who, by and large, are peacefully protesting for change and for reforms to the racist and broken systems that are killing Black Americans,” Bowser wrote.
I agree with President Trump one hundred percent on this.
The mayor of Washington D.C. is incompetent and the people of city would be well served if she resigned immediately.
Being able to win votes does not translate into being able to run things and mayor Bowser is a prime example.
Although to be fair to the mayor, most politicians Republican and Democrat alike with few exceptions are very good at running things.
