New York Mayor Eric Adams cites "problem of white supremacy" in hiring his brother Bernard Adams (above).

Trying to get in front of any criticism over his decision to hire a family member during his first week on the job, Mayor Eric Adams played defense over the weekend and shared insight to his brother's future role in the administration.

Two days after News 4 New York reported that Adams sought to appoint his brother, Bernard Adams, to a deputy commissioner position inside the NYPD, the new mayor revealed job would be in charge of his personal security detail.

"Number one, he will be in charge of my security, which is extremely important to me at a time when we see an increase in white supremacy and hate crimes," Adams told Jake Tapper Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

"Protection is personal. With the increase in anarchists in this city, we have a serious problem with white supremacy," the mayor reiterated at an unrelated press conference later in the day. Read more.
