The Trump campaign is attacking former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg for his past common sense on crime. On Monday night, a video went viral of Bloomberg saying blacks are the most likely to commit violent crime in New York.

President Trump called Bloomberg “A TOTAL RACIST” in a since-deleted tweet. [Mike Bloomberg Stands Tall Against Trump’s Deleted Tweet, by Charlie Nash, Mediaite, February 11, 2020] However, the rest of Trump world kept up their tweets attacking Bloomberg for his sensible comments.
Omg! Leaked audio of Mike Bloomberg talking about the high crime rates among urban minorities.— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) February 11, 2020

The Trump campaign also posted another clip of Bloomberg defending stop-and-frisk’s disproportionate effect on non-whites.
Mike Bloomberg defended stop and frisk: "I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little. It’s exactly the reverse of what they’re saying. I don’t know where they went to school but they certainly didn’t take a math course or a logic course." pic.twitter.com/T1XpZrVrnw— Trump War Room - Text TRUMP to 88022 (@TrumpWarRoom) February 11, 2020
The purpose of this bad faith attack is to paint the former mayor as the real racist. This is a dumb strategy—Trump himself has a long history of defending stop-and-frisk and noticing non-white criminality.
And this one is from 2013:
Sadly, the overwhelming amount of violent crime in our major cities is committed by blacks and hispanics-a tough subject-must be discussed.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2013
This attack only makes Trump look like a hypocrite. What happened to the man who promised to restore law and order?
