Trump says his gov't cut 'violent crime 3 years in row'

Former United States President Donald Trump claimed his administration "significantly reduced violent crime for three years in a row", instituting a streak of initiatives to increase safety in the country.

"We resurrected project Safe Neighborhood, bringing together prosecutors, police sheriffs and citizen groups to get dangerous felons off the streets [...] We funded two hundred new violent crime prosecutors with operation Legend," Trump highlighted in his speech at the National Rifle Association (NRA).

"I was allowing the Democrats to show how they would handle the situation, and when it got out of control, I got involved (...) I called the National Guard and federal law enforcement and we saved the cities of Minneapolis, Kenosha, Seattle, Chicago and even Portland during some very, very bad times," Trump added.
