Adams Gets Dropped By Biden
So much for equity.
According to a report from Axios President Biden has dropped New York City Mayor Eric Adams from his 2024 campaign advisory board because he has been outspoken about the migrant fiasco.
From the Post Millenial:
According to Axios, Adams being dropped from the board occurred before the board was announced last week, with the outlet calling it a "new low in relations between President Biden and the mayor, who was set to be a key surrogate for the campaign."
Adams has publicly called out the Biden administration over crime and illegal immigration, both of which have rocked the Big Apple.
The move is part of a potential crisis the campaign is facing, as many Democrat officials at the state and city level quietly agree with Adams, and are happy he’s taking the brunt of the backlash on their behalf, according to Axios.
These leaders are reportedly running out of patience with the administration, especially over a lack of financial support or solutions in dealing with the flood of illegal immigration that has plagued the Biden administration.
One senior official in a Democrat-led state told the outlet that the White House has been too defensive in regard to Adams’ critiques, saying, "Adams is right to be upset, and I think it’s a massive mistake to be dismissive of him."
One person familiar with the relationship between the two equated it to a couple who is fighting and doesn’t want to hold hands in public.
To top it all off Reverand Al Sharpton has jumped in.
"I'm trying to get them to sort it out," Rev. Al Sharpton told Axios. "I would hope [the White House] sees the value of Eric, the mayor of the largest city, a Black mayor, not all the way left, not all the way right," Sharpton added, noting that Adams would also benefit from a healthy relationship with the White House.
Adams nor his surrogates are backing down: "The mayor compartmentalizes things, and that’s what’s going on here. He thinks the president is doing a really good job and will strongly support him in any way he can, but he is upset about the way he is handling the asylum-seeker crisis."
