(FOX NEWS) – Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’ team fired back at New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, after the mayor offered to teach the Florida governor about the crime-ridden city’s “values.”

Adams took a shot at DeSantis as the Florida governor kicked off his pro-police tour through Democrat-run cities in the City that Never Sleeps on Monday.

“Welcome to NYC, [DeSantis], a place where we don’t ban books, discriminate against our LGBTQ+ neighbors, use asylum seekers as props, or let the government stand between a woman and health care,” Adams wrote on Monday.

“We’re happy to teach you something about values while you’re here,” the New York City mayor continued.

DeSantis’ team fired back minutes later, with DeSantis campaign spokeswoman Christina Pushaw saying New York City had more departures than any other metropolitan area last year.

“Nice rhetoric – but here’s reality: More Americans fled NYC than any other metro area last year,” Pushaw wrote. “More Americans moved to Florida than any other state.”

“You know this, Mayor Adams, and you’ve talked (accurately) about crime pushing people out of NYC,” Pushaw said. “Florida’s crime rate meanwhile is at a 50-year low.”
