“It’s not a yes or no question,” Karine Jean-Pierre asked in her bizarre response about whether big cities are safe

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre didn’t have a clear answer Monday as to whether or not US cities are “safe” amid a rise in crime in recent years.

“The crime is complicated and multi-faceted,” the press secretary said when asked about US city security.

‘[Biden] has inherited a rising crime rate from the previous government,” added Jean-Pierre. She noted that Republicans voted against America’s bailout plan, which provides $300 billion for state and local governments that could be used to hire more police officers.

“So back to the original question: Does President Biden believe America’s big cities are safe?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked the press secretary.

“It’s not a yes or no question,” she replied.

“It’s all about what did he do?” continued Jean-Pierre. “What matters is that we have the funding and we’ve done the work to move the policy forward.”

Homicides in major cities fell slightly by four percent in 2022, but remains 30 percent above 2019 levels. Nationwide shootings are down two percent from the previous year, but not enough to offset the sharp rise in violent crime in 2020 and undo in 2021.

Homicide rates skyrocketed amid the chaos of the Covid-19 lockdowns and after a wave of sometimes violent protests against police brutality and racial injustice in the summer of 2020. The right made the Liberals for the Defund the Police movement and soft crime policies like cashless bail.

Still, homicide rates are below the peak of the early 1990s, when more than 9 in every 100,000 people were murdered. Today that number is about 6.6 people per 100,000.

Other types of crime continue to rise. According to the Criminal Justice Council, thefts and robberies rose 20 percent year-on-year in the first half of 2022, after falling or staying the same in the previous two years.

Jean-Pierre’s comments come after her predecessor, Jen Psaki, said on MSNBC over the weekend that crime could be a “big pain point” for Democrats.

Psaki predicted on Sunday that the issue of crime would continue to weigh on Democrats – citing Republican efforts in the Pennsylvania Senate race, where former Braddock Mayor and current Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman contested Trump-backed socialite Dr . Mehmet Oz compete.

Speaking of leftists, she said, “You also know that crime is a big vulnerability for Democrats, I would say one of the biggest vulnerabilities.”

“In Pennsylvania, Republicans have spent millions of dollars on air crime ads against Fetterman because they see vulnerabilities there,” Psaki claimed.

“So yes, the economy is above it all, but you have to look at factors from state to state and crime is a big problem in the Pennsylvania race.”

“Jen Psaki says crime is a big pain point for Democrats.” Why would she say that?’ Doocy asked Jean-Pierre on Monday.

“I disagree with your characterization of what she actually said,” the press secretary shot back.

On Thursday, the House of Representatives voted to pass bipartisan legislation to increase funding for local police departments, create a grants program to train and deploy mental health professionals in behavioral health-related emergencies, and fund grants to communities for intervention and prevention from violence. It’s not clear if the bill will make it through the Senate, which passed another bill on police funding last month.

The first bill in the package, which increased police funding, narrowly passed due to ongoing opposition. Increasingly frustrated when a vote on police funding was brushed aside, Democratic moderates were looking for a tough victory on crime to take home to their conservative-leaning districts ahead of the midterm elections.

A new battlefield tracker poll by CBS News suggests that rising crime is a top issue for nearly 7 in 10 voters this year – and that they believe the GOP has an edge in solving it.

Republicans have made crime one of the central pillars of their race, alongside inflation and the Southern border, to regain control of the House and Senate in the midterm elections.
