‘Squad’ Acolyte Jamaal Bowman Says Biden Admin Needs To ‘Invest in Climate’ To Solve Crime Spike

Democratic “Squad” member Jamaal Bowman (N.Y.) on Wednesday said the government needs to “invest in climate” rather than policing to promote public safety.

Context: Americans are rattled by three consecutive mass shootings that killed 18 people
