Democrats were most certainly angry when Trump tweeted “Chicago murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016. If Mayor can’t do it he must ask for Federal help!”
So the Liberal news network immediately jumped on Trump calling him a racist for no reason. But, it turned out that he was right!
Chicago Police Board Chairwoman Lori Lightfoot admitted that if Chicago wants to improve, then they will need to call Trump. He is the needed help that will make their city secure. “We need to have more federal gun prosecutions in Chicago. Our federal partners from the U.S. attorney’s office, the ATF, the FBI need to be much more invested in this overall strategy. Chicago Police Department cannot tackle this issue by itself,” started Lightfoot.
“This is not a problem that we’re going to arrest our way out of. We’re dealing with a huge re-entry problem – literally, thousands of people coming back from the Illinois Department of Corrections to the same communities that they left, and those communities just don’t have the resources right now to absorb that huge influx of re-entry,” she continued.
“So we’ve got to tackle that problem. It’s not sexy. It’s not popular, but if we’re going to really get at the root causes of a lot of this gun violence, we’ve got to deal with these issues as well,” she said.
“In Chicago, we are in a state of crisis. We need all hands on deck,” finished Lightfoot.
My bet is that little by little every Liberal will start asking for Trump’s help.
