President Trump taunted New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Twitter Sunday for telling city residents to enjoy the day amid rising crime.
“But people don’t want to be ambushed, beaten or killed. Let New York’s Finest (which proudly supported me!) Do its job. Reinstall the criminal police and fire the police. You will bring security back to NYC FAST !!! “The president wrote on Twitter on Sunday.
The day before, the mayor had tweeted a good mood.

The New York Police Department recently posted a 25-year high in gun busts as violent crime continues to ravage the city, officials said last week.
Chief Constable Dermot Shea, the NYPD’s chief police officer, said 160 guns were arrested between August 31 and last Sunday.
“We hit a 25-year high in gun arrests last week, the most gun arrests in 25 years in a week,” he told 1010 WINS.
The news came after 23 shootings – two fatal – over the holiday weekend. Victims of the shootings include a 6-year-old, his mother and three others who were shot injured during the celebration of the J’Ouvert Caribbean cultural festival early Monday in Brooklyn.
Shea noted that 436 guns were arrested in the 28-day period ending September 6, a significant increase from the 320 recorded in the same period last year, according to the New York Post. He attributed part of the surge in gun crimes to bail reform and court closings.
