Donald Trump used his Twitter bully pulpit on Monday to blast Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for allowing his city's murder and firearms shooting rates to spiral out of control.

'Chicago murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016,' Trump tweeted. 

'If Mayor can't do it he must ask for Federal help!'

2016 was one of the most violent years in Chicago history with the most homicides in two decades – more than New York and Los Angeles combined.

The nation's third largest city also saw 1,100 more shooting incidents last year than it did in 2015, according to data released Sunday by the Chicago Police Department.

  1. Ah! But Catch-22. Rahm’s “sanctuary city” for illegal aliens will
    likely not be able to qualify for federal law enforcement funds for the Chicago Police under the Trump administration, unless they abandon their sanctuary illegal alien protection policy!
    Good thing!

  2. Rahm Emanuel does not want any Federal help policing Chicago. His vision for Chicago is a city without a middle class. Only the elites and the poor will live in the city. The thugs are driving out the middle class.
