President Trump has threatened to send the feds to intervene in New York City following the surge in shootings that’s left at least seven people dead and more than 50 shot in less than a week in the Big Apple.

“Law and Order. If @NYCMayor can’t do it, we will!” the president tweeted Sunday night, retweeting a tally of the recent bloodbath.

Since Thursday, shots rang out in at least 50 separate incidents across the five boroughs, leaving seven dead and 52 injured, ABC New York reported.

The crime wave caps a bloody week of 62 total shootings, up from 26 gun incidents over the same one-week period last year.
