Following their meeting, Tim applauded Mayor Johnson saying, “He and I have been talking for months over the reduction in crime through his efforts, a focus on law and order through his efforts, and the development of green space and livable communities. Those are things that I celebrate, and as President of the United States, I would look for more ways to encourage and to recreate some of the inner city communities in some of the largest cities so that we can have the same quality of life that we would hope to have as kids growing up in these big communities.”
Mayor Johnson recently announced his departure from the Democrat Party to join the Republican Party. Johnson explained, “While Dallas has thrived, elsewhere Democratic policies have exacerbated crime and homelessness.”
