On Monday, NYC Mayor Eric Adams delivered remarks ahead of former President Donald Trump's arrival to respond to District Attorney Alvin Bragg's recent indictment and the mayor told Trump supporters to "control yourselves" and said that Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who will be in the Big Apple to support the former president, promoted "hate speech."
Adams said, "There may be some rabble rousers who are thinking about coming to our city tomorrow, our message is clear and simple: control yourselves. Our city is our home, not a playground for your misplaced anger."
"We are the safest large city in America because we respect the rule of law in New York City," Adams said. There were 433 murders in NYC in 2022, down slightly from 488 murders in 2021. But Adams' NYC murder rate is still noticeably higher than 2019's 318 murders as major crime continues to soar in recent months.
"And although we have no specific threats," Adams said. "People like Marjorie Taylor Gree, who is known to spread misinformation and hate speech, she stated she's coming to town."
Adams then addressed the congresswoman directly and said, "while you're in town be on your best behavior."
"As always, we will not allow violence or vandalism of any kind and if anyone caught participating in any act of violence they will be arrested and held accountable," Adams said.This is a breaking story and will be updated.
