If Rahm Emanuel can’t get a handle on the number of shootings and ever-climbing murder rate in Chicago then someone else should take over.
Barack Obama was quick to send federal agents into cities when black thugs were shot by police, but he did absolutely nothing about the murder rate in his home town, Chicago. He did nothing about Chicago because there was no political payoff for him. Despicable!
Newly sworn President Donald Trump warned Tuesday he would send in “the Feds” if the city of Chicago cannot reverse its recent surge in violence.
“If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!” Trump said on his civilian Twitter account Tuesday evening.
Republican Trump has thrown jabs at Chicago, especially during the presidential campaign. The city is run by Democratic Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who has defied Trump on immigration issues.
No immediate response from City Hall or the Chicago Police Department.
If Chicago doesn't fix the horrible "carnage" going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!
