New York City Mayor Eric Adams Urges Protesters to ‘Control Themselves’

In a press conference on Monday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams and NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell discussed the security measures being taken ahead of former President Donald Trump’s arraignment. The two officials stressed that as of midday Monday, there have been no credible or specific threats to the city. Despite this, Mayor Adams recognized that anticipated protests and the unique nature of the situation could potentially cause tension.

Mayor Adams warned at City Hall.

“Control yourselves, New York City is our home, not a playground for your misplaced anger. We are the safest large city in America because we respect the rule of law in New York City. And although we have no specific threats, people like Marjorie Taylor Greene, who is known to spread misinformation and hate speech, says she’s coming to town. While you are in town, be on your best behavior. As always, we will not allow violence or vandalism of any kind. And if one is caught participating in any act of violence, they will be arrested and held accountable no matter who you are.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene would respond to Mayor Adams on Twitter, saying:

“Delusional @NYCMayor is trying to intimidate, threaten, and stop me from using my 1st amendment rights to peacefully protest the Democrat’s unconstitutional weaponization of our justice system against our top Republican Presidential candidate, President Trump. Mayor Adams should be more concerned about NY citizens and taxpayers being murdered, raped, robbed, and carjacked than an elected Member of Congress coming to town. Or should I be the one concerned that the mayor of NYC will weaponize his government or maybe his thugs like DA Alvin Bragg against me?”

“In Mayor Eric Adams City of New York, an average of 8 people overdose on drugs every single day because of his PRO drug policy. He wants more drug use centers stocked with syringes, straws for snorting, and other drug paraphernalia to help NY’s poor drug addicts kill themselves. Drug overdoses account for 80 to 85% of accidental deaths in New York City. That’s a fatal overdose every 3 hours! And now Mayor Adams is threatening me. Unbelievable.”

Increased Police Presence and Intermittent Road Closures

Sewell warned that New Yorkers might see an increased police presence in certain areas of the city and intermittent road closures over the next few days, particularly in Manhattan. He urged people to use mass transit to avoid delays.

Legitimate, Lawful Expression Without Violence or Destruction

Sewell also emphasized that violence and destruction are not legitimate, lawful expressions and would not be tolerated in the city. The NYPD’s job is to facilitate and safeguard people’s rights to express themselves while maintaining safety and security in the city.

Preparation and Lack of Concern

Deputy Mayor Philip Banks assured the public that the NYPD and all of the city’s public safety apparatus are always prepared to ensure everyone’s safety during events like Trump’s arrival. Meanwhile, Adams expressed confidence in the NYPD’s ability to pivot and shift based on the circumstances that they are facing, and he was not overly concerned about the former president’s arrival.

Trump’s Arraignment and Indictment

Trump is expected to arrive at the New York City courthouse at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, hours before his scheduled arraignment in front of Judge Juan Merchan at 2:15 p.m. The details of his indictment are still under seal but are expected to relate to alleged 2016 “hush money” payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

Expected Motion to Dismiss

Trump’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, expects to file a motion to dismiss whatever charges the grand jury has indicted Trump for in this case. The proceedings are expected to take 15 to 30 minutes, with extensive security around the building expected to search everyone in the courtroom twice. Trump is likely to use a side entrance to the building, and the exact details of his arrival will not be known until shortly before his arrival for security reasons.


  1. Hey you, America hating fascists running New York….Control your fascist rats, you know the usual suspects like Antifa, blm, the militant alphabet gang & your rabid selves. Setting the record straight, you are the problem not the good & peaceful American citizens who conduct themselves in a non violent manner. Your hypocrisy is sickening !

  2. Lol this mayor is full of shit Along with his prosecutor He will not even prosecute the people who are killing people there now They let them go free

  3. LISTEN UP….TRUMP did NOT choose GOD. GOD chose TRUMP to be an Instrument of USE to serve HIS Purpose. ALL shall See the POWER of GOD in ALL its GLORY. From SamuraiQueen aka CHIAKIA. Servant of the LORD GOD. 😄😄😄😇😇😇😉😉😉

  4. I loved as much as you’ll receive carried out right here. The sketch is attractive, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get bought an nervousness over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come more formerly again as exactly the same nearly a lot often inside case you shield this hike.

  5. The nerve of Adams telling us to control ourselves. Would he say the same to those who burned and looted and vandalized in 2020, and the trans riots last week in various cities?

    1. Took the words right out of my mouth. Just remember god is in control and he is setting up these evil and ungodly Political actors. A day of reckoning is coming so pray for the safety of D.J. T. and his Family.

  6. Just unbelievable that NY would allow this abuse of judicial power. I’m holding back writing what should be said as much as I can.

  7. Lol where was this attitude when his city was being burned and destroyed. Hell the crap going on now?!. TDS is real.

  8. If Adams were doing his job and letting the police put Criminals away instead of giving the Criminal Scum a free pass maybe people would not cause trouble in his town. He may also make sure his DA is not trying people for NON-Crimes and hiding evidence that proves their INNOCENCE they might not be trouble.

  9. NYC should have been ground zero for the “Summer of Love” It would have been a favor to the country if the left’s army of thugs burned it to the ground like they did elsewhere. I hope MTG doesn’t get any NYC stuck on her shoes.

  10. Yep, Better Watchout for anyone “PROTESTING” on the Street’s of NYC. There going to JAIL YOU! But, and I say (BUT) if your PROTESTING/Rioting, Burning DOWN POLICE CAR’S. Burn And ROB SHOPS, PUSH PEOPLE OFF the SUBWAY PLATFORM, Rape and Murder in YOUR CENTRAL PARK. SHIT, GO AHEAD! No BAIL, NO TIME! It’s FREE, ALL FREE! Comrades.

  11. NYC is concerned with the truth either. Anytime the truth is displayed the media and democrats call it misinformation. Please people just look at all the republican states on trying to stop CRT from destroying children.

  12. As usual, the fools that run that city threaten a peaceful protest and will arrest anyone misbehaving, (which means supporting Trump against this latest scam), but since this fool took office what has he done to stop the crime that is tearing that city apart? When Dems flock together nothing good ever comes of it.
