Bill deBlasio trying to blame Trump for the wave of attacks on Jews in his city

New York Mayor Bill deBlasio is behaving despicably in the face of a wave of terror inflicted on Jews in his city. He is seeking to protect Jew-haters when they are part of his political base and instead blame President Trump, the best friend Jews have ever had in the White House for the beginning of what amounts to a pogrom.

Mary Margaret Olohan of the Daily Caller News Foundation writes:

 Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio blamed hate “emanating from Washington” Sunday for anti-Semitic attacks throughout the country.

The mayor told Fox News’s Ed Henry on “America’s News HQ” that hate is “having an effect on all of us.”

“I also want us to be clear what’s happening here,” de Blasio said Sunday. “An atmosphere of hate has been developing in this country over the last few years. A lot of it is emanating from Washington, and it’s having an effect on all of us.” 

Henry questioned de Blasio as to whether the New York mayor was blaming President Donald Trump for the attacks, to which de Blasio responded, “Not just the president — I’m saying, but we have to be clear. We need a different tone starting in Washington.”

Here is the shameful lie:

DeBlasio’s hands are not clean. His policy of letting poor people out on low or no bail has freed offenders to attack again.
