In its drive to debunk the latest Trump-fact, the Washington Post has published an exposé saying that not all, but just 17 out of 20 most dangerous US cities are Democrat-run. Readers weren’t impressed by the desperate nitpicking.
The newspaper ran a long piece digging into Donald Trump’s remarks in which the president noted a correlation between party affiliation of mayors and city “danger” levels, claiming that the entire Top-20 are run by the Democrats.
“Every one of them is Democrat run. Twenty out of 20. The 20 worst, the 20 most dangerous are Democrat run,” Trump said on Thursday. Admitting it was not entirely clear what exactly Trump meant by the “most dangerous,” the newspaper turned to FBI statistics on violent crime, trying to challenge his claim.
