President Trump tore into New York City leaders on Monday for painting “Black Lives Matter” on 5th Avenue while shootings skyrocket in the city.

“In one recent week in New York City, this is hard to believe, shootings were up to 358 percent,” Trump said at a White House police appreciation event.

“And yet they spend all their time — they want to do Black Lives Matter signs outside of Trump Tower. They ought to spend their time doing something else because I’ll tell you what, 358 percent increase in shootings in New York.”

Trump added: “Last month over 300 people were shot. NYPD retirements have quadrupled and they’re going up even further. And New York City is out of control unfortunately — my place, I love it, but it’s out of control. It was doing so well.”

Trump praised former Republican mayor Rudy Giuliani’s record. Giuliani, one of Trump’s attorneys, visited the White House on July 1 and told reporters Black Lives Matter is a “Marxist organization” that was “planning to destroy the police for three years.”
