President Trump has offered to “send in the Feds” to assist the crime ridden city of Chicago in lowering its homicide rate.
Chicago’s crime statistics are off the charts in almost all categories, especially homicide.
If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible “carnage” going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a close friend of former President Obama, has admitted Chicago has serious crime issues, but on Monday he attacked President Trump for wasting time worrying about the size of the crowd at his inauguration.
Trump did not give any specific plans on how the Federal law enforcement agencies could help Chicago.
Reports show there have been about 228 shot in Chicago so far this year, and 42 murders.
