WATCH: Atlanta Mayor Tries to Put Blame on Trump for Shooting of 8 Yr Old Girl

Appearing on CNN, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms attempted to tie Trump’s lack of leadership to the recent shooting of a 8 year old girl.

Brooke Baldwin:

With me now, the mayor of Atlanta, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. So, Mayor Bottoms, thank you so much for being with me.

And I want to just get right to Secoriea, 8 years of age. You said it over the weekend. She was a baby. How could this happen?

Keisha Lance Bottoms:

You know, Brooke, that’s the question that we’re all asking ourselves.

And, ironically, I found a note on my desk, and I don’t even know the context in which I wrote this out. But I said, I don’t know the answers because I often don’t even know the questions to ask.

And I was listening to Mayor Lightfoot. She summed it up. We talk about systemic racism and the trauma and anxiety and all these things that are happening in our communities. And it is this convergence.

And I hate to use the word a perfect storm, but it’s where we are in this country right now. And you think about the leadership or the lack thereof that we have coming from the highest office in the land. I think that you are seeing so many emotions play out.

And so, too often, it’s playing out in violence in our streets.
