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.
Looks like Rahm’s visit to Trump Tower a couple weeks ago didnt go as planned (for Rahm, anyway).
Perhaps The Donald told Rahm to “take it to the alley”.
I thought Black Lives Matter.
Not important to them … then not important to me.
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!
year end stats
in the city of the dems.
There shouldn’t be any federal law enforcement funds because that spending isn’t authorized by Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution.
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.
Exactly… proof we have an oppressive tyrannical federal government
