Liberals were pissed 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!” Liberal news networks attacked Trump for this, they called him a racist, but it turns out that Trump was right.
Chicago Police Board Chairwoman Lori Lightfoot, admitted that if Chicago wants to improve, then they will need Trump’s help. “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,” continued Lightfoot. Do you think she is right? Check out the full interview here.
