Donald Trump used his Twitter 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.
What else from Obama’s hometown – the most liberal city in America!
Mayor Emanuel spoke to the media after meeting with Trump on December 7; he reportedly pressed the president-elect about illegal immigration, not gun violence
How crazy! Chicago’s statistics underline a story of bloodshed that has put the city at the center of a national dialogue about gun violence.
