Mr Neil described his personal experience of living across the pond, and his perceptions of “lawlessness” in society which he chalks up to the Biden administration’s leadership. He initially attacked New York City, but added that the Big Apple was “not alone in its decline.” He said: “Some other US cities are in an even worse state.”
Writing in the Daily Mail, he stated: “Parts of Chicago are war zones. In one weekend alone, last month, at least 28 people were shot, six of them killed.”
He added: “Urban America isn’t just fraying at the edges. It is rotting at its core.
“And the man Americans expect to lead them in times of crisis is missing in action.”
He slated President Biden as having “nothing to say about his country’s growing crisis, hampered not just by the fact that he doesn’t seem to care but also because the worst crucibles of crime are all under Democratic control and the president is, of course, a Democrat”.
Mr Neil cited recent approval polls, one of which highlighted dropping popularity for the President just one year into his term.
A poll by Suffolk University in Boston and USA TODAY showed that Mr Biden’s approval rating had plummeted since August.
Mr Biden’s approval rating is hovering at 38 percent, with almost three in five disapproving of his presidency.
It also follows the Democrat loss at the Virginia gubernatorial elections, with Democrat candidate Terry McAuliffe beaten out by his Republican rival Glenn Youngkin.
Mr Neil, pulling on these figures and defeats, said: “The Democrats are now suffering in elections because of a growing sense that they’ve lost control of both the border and the towns and cities — and that lawlessness is increasingly the order of the day.”
He added: “Virginia, which voted solidly for Biden last year, elected a Republican governor this month. New Jersey, which is even more reliably Democrat, almost went the same way.”
This comes ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, which will see a rejig of both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
Mr Neil said: “There is no question in my mind that the Republicans will win back control of the House of Representatives in next November’s mid-term elections.

“I’m pretty sure they will take back the Senate too. That will mark the end of Biden’s legislative programme, which is struggling in Congress as it is.”
Earlier this week, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed that Mr Biden intended to re-run for a second term in 2024.
The President, on the date of the next presidential elections, will be just a fortnight shy of 82 years old.
Mr Neil scorned this announcement, saying: “Of course, the White House has to say he will run again.
“Even the slightest indication to the contrary would immediately turn him into a lame-duck president and power would drain inexorably from him.”
All of this adds up to what Mr Neil called “their worst nightmare: Donald J Trump”.
With favourable opinion polling, a confidant of the ex-President told Mr Neil that Mr Trump may consider contesting the elections in three years’ time.
They said: “He will wait to see the outcome of next year’s mid-term elections. Then see what the polls are saying after that.
“He doesn’t need to decide much before the end of 2023.”
Mr Trump’s Thanksgiving message renewed speculation he intends to run in 2024.
The message read: “A very interesting time in our Country, but do not worry, we will be great again – and we will all do it together.
“America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction. Too many generations of greatness are counting on us. Enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!”
