It Proves Him Right.An “analysis” in The Washington Post this week apparently sought to discredit a claim by President Donald Trump about violence in Democrat-controlled cities and ended up proving him correct.
The Post noted that Trump has sought to portray Democrats as soft on crime as part of his re-election strategy and pointed out the following quote from Trump on Wednesday: “You hear about certain places like Chicago and you hear about what’s going on in Detroit and other — other cities, all Democrat run.

WNU Editor: The two “independents” in the Washington Post analysis are (1) the mayor of San Antonio Ron Nirenberg, who is regarded as a hard-core progressive. (2) The second independent is the mayor of Las Vegas Carolyn Goodman, a former Democrat. So Trump is wrong as the Washington Post is claiming. It is not 20 out of 20, it is 19 out of 20. But then again, Trump did say “most”, and in my book “most” is between 11 to 19.
