That there’s no easy solution doesn’t mean that there aren’t easy political points to score. Last year, as a number of cities saw increases in violent crime, then-President Donald Trump blamed those cities’ Democratic leaders for the shift, despite his 2016 campaign rhetoric about curtailing the crime that he then said was a plague on the country. Trump oddly tried to suggest that electing Joe Biden would lead to the sort of violence that was already occurring under Trump, but, no matter. His allies quickly echoed his rhetoric.
