A once lively shopping center now desolate due to safety concerns.
President Joe Biden will give a DNC speech at Union Station near Capitol Hill because “that’s where there was an attempt to subvert our democracy.”

Except we live in a republic that has democratic aspects.
But Union Station is a great spot because it emphasizes the worries of Americans that Democrats choose to ignore.
Economy, crime, and security. Homeless encampments used to surround the building, but the city cleared them out over the summer.
Union Station used to have an incredible shopping center. Most stores closed because of crime.

Reminder: the Starbucks in Union Station, where Biden is speaking tonight, closed earlier this year because of out-of-control crime in a Democrat-run city. pic.twitter.com/hw4gCAbums

President Biden plans to deliver an address Tuesday night from Union Station in DC. This once-thriving shopping center is now practically a ghost town. I took this photo of empty stores on Saturday. pic.twitter.com/UqgMwxGOnP

Union Station was so bad in the 80s someone attempted to mug my dad there. When I moved a few blocks away in '99, it had a huge food court, shops, movie theater and thrived for the next decade or more. Now it's back to this — DC let this happen. https://t.co/v5y66LjWWU
