Former Senator Barbara Boxer assaulted and robbed in Oakland and Trump RESPONDS

Yesterday it was reported that former Senator Barbara Boxer was assaulted and robbed yesterday in Oakland:

FOX 8 – Former U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer was assaulted and robbed Monday in Oakland, California, her son said.

The assault happened in the Jack London Square neighborhood, according to a tweet on Boxer’s verified Twitter account.

“The assailant pushed her in the back, stole her cell phone, and jumped in a waiting car,” the tweet said. “She is thankful that she was not seriously injured.”

The tweet was confirmed via email by Boxer’s son, Douglas Boxer, an attorney.

Responding to multiple media inquiries, the Oakland Police Department confirmed a robbery at about 1:15 p.m. in the area but didn’t identify the victim.

The suspect fled in a waiting vehicle, police said. The robbery is under investigation.

Boxer, 80, represented California in the U.S. Senate from 1993 until 2017. The Democrat did not seek reelection in 2016.

As an aside, Boxer blamed Trump last year for violent crime:



 
This morning Trump responded to the news of her assault and robbery, using the moment to push for REFUNDING the police and stopping the commie leaders in these cities:
