It’s as if the New York City Police Commissioner has had enough. In yet another slam against a Republican presidential candidate, Bill Bratton attacked Trump’s claim that foreigners are the imminent threat to Americans.
After watching a clip of Trump saying, “I don’t think America is a safe place for Americans. We’re allowing thousands of people to come in here. Nobody knows where they’re from,” Bratton disagreed.
“America is a very safe place,” Bratton explained. “But we have our incidences, we know. We’ve had more than our share of mass killing, some committed by terrorists, but the vast majority committed by American citizens living here who have access to firearms.”
Bratton then noted the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary that took the lives of 20 six and seven-year-olds.
“Newtown was an example of that — all those young children killed by an American citizen,” he continued. “So a bigger threat at the moment is our own citizens than those abroad. That may change as the world get less stable.”
