WATCH: Eric Adams Says Rikers Island Is 'Ready' For Trump As NYC Officials Smirk – EVOL

New York Mayor Eric Adams reacted to Manhattan Judge Juan Merchan’s threats to jail former President Donald Trump if he violates the gag order imposed in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s highly suspect “hush money” case. While surrounded by smirking New York City officials, Adams declared that the notorious Rikers Island jail is “ready” for the former president.

“So at President Trump’s trial they were talking about how he might end up in jail if he continues to violate his court orders. Is Rikers prepared for that? Do you guys have those discussions yet?” Adams was asked by a reporter. The question drew laughs and smirks from New York City officials seated to the mayor’s left and right.

“Our amazing Commissioner, she is prepared for whatever comes on Rikers Island, I’m pretty sure she would be prepared to manage and deal with the situation,” the mayor replied. “As you see what’s happening with Harvey Weinstein. We have to adjust, you know, in this business, particularly around law enforcement, we have to adjust whatever comes our way.”

When asked whether he had discussed the possibility with the city’s corrections department, Adams answered in the affirmative.
