Donald Trump Jr. Blames Failing Security Cameras on ‘Left Narrative’

Donald Trump Jr. has suggested that New York City subway cameras were intentionally disabled for political reasons to prevent a mass shooting from being recorded.

Former President Donald Trump’s eldest son made the remarks on Twitter on Wednesday, referring to New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ admission that cameras weren’t working when a gunman opened fire on the streets. commuters on Tuesday. Trump Jr.’s comments are the latest in a series of tweets accusing law enforcement of pandering to politics as they respond to the shooting.

After the shooting, reports surfaced that security cameras at the 36th Street station in Sunset Park, the scene of the attack, were down and did not capture the incident. Adams confirmed to WCBS that there was “some form of malfunction with the camera system”, which he said was being investigated.

The shooting presented a significant challenge for Adams, a Democrat, who has prioritized public safety in the nation’s largest city, particularly over its public transit system.

“Why do security cameras never seem to work when the reality of the crime is no good for the leftist narrative???” Trump Jr. said on Twitter.

Police arrested suspected shooter Frank James on Wednesday, who faces terrorism charges for the incident that left 10 people injured.

Prior to filming, James had posted videos on YouTube predicting a “civil war” between the races. He also said that white people rightly viewed black people as slaves. James in a video also slammed Adams, saying the mayor contributed to his mental health issues and that he walked out of a facility with “more problems.”

Trump Jr. Wednesday retweeted a tweet of a writer from the conservative RedState blog referencing videos of James saying “the media won’t care at all that he was motivated by left-wing talking points”.

In another tweet, Trump Jr. suggested the attack wasn’t described as “terror” because “the description wasn’t good for the narrative.”

He also took aim at the FBI, which has come under fire from the former president and his allies for investigating his campaign’s ties to Russia.

“Great job NYPD,” wrote Trump Jr. “Despite constant attacks from New York’s leftist leaders, you still get there…unlike the FBI leadership who seem far more interested in creating crimes and letting the real bad guys go.”

Twitter users responded to Trump Jr.’s tweet suggesting politics was behind the faulty subway cameras by pointing to recently leaked text messages showing he was seeking to block certification of the 2020 election. Another Twitter user published video of the speeches donated by Trump Jr. and his father before a mob stormed the US Capitol in 2020.

Another Twitter user pointed the finger at Donald Trump links with Jeffrey Epstein, convicted sex offender.

Epstein was found dead in his New York jail cell and his death was ruled a suicide.

However, conspiracy theories continued to circulate that he was murdered by a powerful figure worried about potentially compromising information held by Epstein, who has been accused of running a sex trafficking operation.

A big driver behind the conspiracy theories were the two faulty cameras outside his cell.

Newsweek contacted Adams’ office for comment.
