Trump: Chicago mayor should ask feds to help combat homicides

Posted Jan 2 2017

Washington (CNN)President-elect Donald Trump said Monday that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel should seek federal assistance to combat homicides in the nation's third-largest city.

"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!" Trump tweeted.

Trump's tweet accurately relayed Chicago's homicide numbers. And while they are not "record setting," The Chicago Tribune reports that homicides were up 60% from 2015 to the highest levels in 20 years.

Emanuel, who was President Barack Obama's chief of staff from January 2009 to October 2010, met with Trump in New York last month, urging the President-elect to continue the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program until a modernized immigration system can be decided by Congress.

Emanuel's administration said Monday it looks "forward to working with" Trump on crime.

Is this another fake news story? If Trump really said that, he needs to explain what he meant. Feds do not need to be policing communities. The extent of fed help to Chicongo should be to advise Rahm to repeal their gun control laws.
