Marjorie Taylor Greene Calls to ‘Defund New York’ over Trump Conviction

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is calling for Congress to “defund” the state of New York for its politically motivated conviction of President Donald Trump.

Greene suggested that the state be disconnected from federal funding in response to Trump’s “guilty” verdict in New York City last week, as Interview reported.

The proposal would restrict access to federal taxpayer resources for benefits, education, housing, and law enforcement.

Greene made the call during an interview with former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon on the television channel Real America’s Voice.

During the show, Greene asserted:

“And I think the American people have turned a corner after they watched that conviction come down in New York, to the point where it’s like, ‘you know what? Screw New York.’

“New York doesn’t deserve a damn penny.

“We shouldn’t fund them one single dime. Not a dime.”

“Because New York – you want to know – the state of New York – you know what they did, Steve,” she asked Bannon.

“That state of New York released a monster – an illegal alien – that then traveled down to Georgia and murdered Laken Riley, yet they convicted President Trump of 34 fake felony charges.”

Jose Ibarra, who had pleaded not guilty to the murder of Riley, was the illegal alien that Greene was referring to while he was speaking.

As Slay News reported, Ibarra was released by New York authorities before he allegedly murdered the young nursing student.

“Oh no, no, no,” she added.

“The state of New York is the one that carries on and continues crimes and violence and corruption.

“They don’t deserve a penny from the federal government.”

Greene has a long history of being outspoken on controversial subjects.

During an interview with Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo in May, Greene accused House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) of being “owned by the Democrats.”

Greene blasted the speaker in response to Johnson’s evident reluctance to “defund Jack Smith,” the special counsel who filed two politically motivated indictments against Trump.

The House rejected Greene’s attempt to remove Johnson from his position.

Her resolution was supported by only 10 Republicans and 32 Democrats.

In a bipartisan effort, the chamber ultimately voted 359-43-7 to maintain his position.

In a social media post on X in late May, Greene warned that Democrat President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) made an attempt to “assassinate” Trump.

The post was a response to unsealed FBI documents revealing that Biden’s DOJ authorized the use of “lethal force” during a raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida in August 2022.

Greene’s comments echoed a statement made by Trump on Truth Social.,

In the post, Trump blasted the DOJ for having “AUTHORIZED THE FBI TO USE DEADLY (LETHAL) FORCE.”
