Democrats Shocked By New York Crowd’s Enthusiasm For Trump

Former President Donald Trump took a break from courtroom drama on Tuesday to visit an infamous Hamilton Heights bodega. Democrats had to be alarmed when the massive gathering greeted him with a loud chant of “four more years!”

Trump made the surprise excursion to show his support for bodega worker Jose Alba, who encountered a frightening situation in July 2022. An ex-con, Austin Simon, leapt over the store counter with the clear intent to rob the establishment.

Alba, however, was armed with a knife and managed to flip the script. He valiantly defended himself from the attack, ultimately killing Simon.

It should have been an open-and-shut case of self-defense, but that was before radical progressive District Attorney Alvin Bragg became involved. Suddenly the immigrant clerk was charged with murder.

Murder charges were eventually dropped, but Alba was so traumatized he returned to his native Dominican Republic.

Trump noted this obvious injustice Tuesday as children shouted “we love you.” The audience broke into an impromptu rendition of the Star Spangled Banner as the former president declared, “You know what we’re going to be doing, right? We’re going to be saving America.”

The former president’s campaign is spotlighting what he strongly believes is New York City’s soft on crime issue. Trump recently appeared at the wake of slain NYPD officer Jonathan Diller and spoke with the grieving family about the issue of recidivism.

Diller was allegedly killed by a repeat offender with a very lengthy rap sheet.

While at the bodega, Trump addressed Bragg and the problem of rampant crime head-on. “Number one,” he declared, “we have to stop crime. We have to let police do their job, they have to be given back their authority.”

Trump was a long-time resident of the nation’s largest city before relocating to Florida. He said he still loves the troubled metropolis but that it has “gotten so bad in the last three, four years.”

The 45th president was obviously pleased by the warm reception as he enjoyed a break from his latest trial to shake hands near his former home. “It makes me campaign locally, and that’s okay. We’re doing better now than we’ve ever done, so I think it’s having a reverse effect.”
