You already know that the Biden administration doesn’t want to talk about how much its student loan bailout will cost taxpayers, but they also don’t want to talk about America’s soaring crime rates either. It seems that they would prefer to wait until after November to discuss the answers to any of the questions Americans are asking. The Post Millennial reports that Biden Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre prefers not to discuss the president’s views on the crime plaguing American cities. Joshua Young reports for the Post Millennial:
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about rising crime in America on Monday, citing hard statistics and Democratic pundits on the issue.
Doocy asked, “Does President Biden think America’s big cities are safe?” to which Jean-Pierre said, “It’s not a yes or no question” and that “crime is complicated and multifaceted.”

Doocy continued to note that “the murder rate is still 30 percent above its 2019 level” and noted robberies and other offenses are up as well. He also references some “high profile” examples of violent crime, including the robbery of Congresswoman Karen Bass’ home and the mugging of a Washington Commanders football player.
Jean-Pierre answered by saying Biden has tried to secure “historic funding” for law enforcement and referenced the American Rescue Plan, to which Doocy asked again verbatim, “Does President Biden think America’s big cities are safe?”
After Jean-Pierre said it was not a yes or no question she said that what really matters is the funding. “What matters is that we have the funding and we have done the work, put the policy forward to make sure that the cities whether it’s big or small, have what they need to protect the community and that’s what this President has done,” she said.
Democrat-led metropolises have experienced record high crime levels in the past two years, especially following the “defund the police” movement that began in 2020. As a result many have fled these Blue cities and states, leaving their downtowns barren of human activity, and moved to safer, more affordable locations, most of which are in Republican-led areas.
