Taking advantage of the hot news, Former President Donald Trump addresses the occurrence of a hammer attack while specifying it as a ‘terrible thing’.
Trump weighed on the violent assault that emerged in San Francisco and called it one of the ‘Democrat-run-cities’ incidents while discussing rising crime rates in the region.
During an interview wit the conservative Spanish network Americano Media, Trump said,
“With Paul Pelosi, that’s a terrible thing, and with all of them, that’s a terrible thing.” “Look at what happened to San Francisco generally. Look at what’s happening in Chicago. It was far worse than Afghanistan,” he said.
Paul Pelosi, 82-year-old needed head surgery after a skull fracture attack as he was struck by a hammer at a San Francisco residence while Nancy Pelosi was in Washington DC at the same time when the culprit broke in from the window of the couple’s home.
David DePape, 42, was the suspect arrested after allegedly breaking in and striking Paul with a hammer on his head. Reportedly, he was screaming ‘Where is Nancy?’ when he encountered Paul.
After the incident, Paul underwent a fracture repairing head surgery which he is expected to recover from in the coming days.
Not only for attacking, but DePape is accused of attempting murder with weapons, burglary, elderly abuse, and other felony crimes as stated by the police.
Trump was triggered by his Friday media interview at his Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago estate, Florida that involved Paul’s attack.
“These people are crazy,” the ex-president said, referring to Illinois lawmakers who passed a controversial law last year abolishing cash bail, which goes into effect next year. “They’re gonna release stone-cold killers from jails, nobody knows why. I mean, they need a room or something.”
Contrary to what police claims about the charges, conservatives believe that the arson and murder suspects will have bail during trials. However, they are certain that if the Court deems that they are a threat to society and pose risk to public safety, then they would order the criminals complete incarceration. However, according to the new laws that pose higher standards on the mandatory conditions that lead a criminal toward jail, critics assume that it will be hard to handcuff suspects.
