Former President Donald Trump frequently asserts that crime has escalated under President Joe Biden's leadership. However, data from the FBI and local police departments paint a different picture.

FBI statistics indicate a significant decline in crime nationwide in 2022, with violent crime dropping by 6% compared to the previous year. This trend is evident in major cities such as Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C., where violent crime has decreased year-over-year.

Despite Trump's claims, the reported violent crime rate in 2022 was lower than in 2020, the last full year of his presidency. The lowest violent crime rate during Trump's presidency was in 2019, which was comparable to the rate in 2022.

Trump's campaign has cited specific categories of crime, such as motor vehicle theft, as having increased under Biden. However, overall violent crime rates have declined.

In New York City, where Trump has frequently criticized the crime rate, major crimes have decreased by 2.3% this year compared to the same period last year. This decline follows a long-term trend of reduced crime in the city, with major crimes dropping by over 75% since 1990.

Trump's claims about a migrant-driven crime wave are also unsubstantiated. Data from local police departments shows no evidence of such a trend. In fact, crime rates have decreased in several major cities targeted by Texas' Operation Lone Star, which transports migrants to Democratic-run cities.
