(Washington, DC) — The White House says, echoing the Democrats constant refrain for years- that the surge in violent crime in the U.S. is linked to increased gun violence. Press Secretary Jen Psaki said President Biden is considering additional executive actions to curb the surge in violent crime. She noted it has been on the rise since before Biden took office–without noting that Democrat-run cities allowed criminals to get out of jail and suspended bail under the guise of the pandemic and defunding police. Psaki also condemned deadly attacks on law enforcement officers. Psaki said cops make an extraordinary sacrifice and put themselves in harm’s way every day.
