NYC Mayor Adams described as ‘Black Trump’ for warning migrant crisis to ‘destroy’ city: ‘Bigoted thinking’

An MSNBC writer blasted New York City Mayor Eric Adams as “Black Trump” Sunday for his speech raising concerns about the migrant crisis which was spilling over into the Big Apple, calling it “bigoted thinking” inspired by the right. 

“But there’s a reason Adams’ rant is being applauded by conservatives… Maybe it’s because [conservatives] feel they’ve made him… come around to their bigoted thinking,” said Ja’han Jones, a writer for MSNBC’s The ReidOut Blog, the “digital extension” of Joy Reid’s primetime show

In his most recent post, Jones repeatedly blasted Adams – who is a Democrat – for “parroting right-wing talking points and espousing conservative politics” on immigration. 

“That has led some of his critics to label him ‘Black Trump’ And he lived up to the moniker Thursday with an anti-immigrant diatribe that sounded as if it had been ripped from the former president’s social media feed,” Jones wrote. 

“What happened? It started with a madman down in Texas, decided he wanted to bus people up to New York City,” Adams said Wednesday. “One hundred ten thousand migrants. We have to feed, clothe, house, educate the children, wash their laundry sheets, give them everything they need, health care. And this team here, we stated, let’s do everything possible before we have to push it out into neighborhoods and communities. Month after month, I stood up, and I said, ‘This is going to come to a neighborhood near you.’”
