Former President Donald Trump blasted President Joe Biden over the increase in crime in the U.S. on Thursday during a Fox News interview.
“When you have hordes of people running in, kids mostly, running in, stealing, robbing stores where drug chains are closing all their stores in different cities because they can’t keep them open, we just don’t have law enforcement. We’re not allowed to have law enforcement,” he lamented.
“Our country, I’ll tell you what, our country is being destroyed. It should never be allowed to happen,” he continued. “The police have to be given their power back, they have to stop the crime, they can do it, and they want to do it, but they’re not allowed to do it.”
Trump referred to looting occurring in San Francisco and other cities around the country, where flash mobs have taken thousands of dollars of merchandise from each store.
“If you allowed [police] to do their job, that would stop, and crime would stop, but they’re not allowed,” Trump said.
