Chicago’s death toll is so high this year it’s driving up the murder rate for the country’s biggest cities. In 2016, more people were killed in Chicago by gun violence than in New York City and Los Angeles combined! The number killed represented a 58 percent increase over the number killed in 2015.
Democrat Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, doesn’t seem concerned that citizens of his city are dying in record numbers. President Trump, on the other hand, actually cares about the safety of Americans and his message is being heard, even by gang members.
Chicago gang members are dissing the do-nothing Democrats and asking President Trump for help!
Dr. Darrell Scott, a pastor of New Spirit Revival Center in Ohio, said he has been contacted by “some of the top gang thugs in Chicago for a sit-down.”
The pastor made clear they want to “work with” the administration to curb the violence in the city.
“THEY RESPECT YOU. THEY BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU’RE DOING,” HE SAID.
Even though Chicago is Obama’s hometown, Trump has already shown more concern than Obama has in 8 years.
“It’s a great idea because Chicago is totally out of control,” Trump said.
According to Scott, the gang members said they will commit to lowering the body count and even come in and do social programs.
He said the gang members he spoke to didn’t believe in the Obama administration.
“THEY REACHED OUT TO ME. THEY WANT TO WORK WITH THIS ADMINISTRATION. … THEY DIDN’T BELIEVE IN THE PRIOR ADMINISTRATION, THEY TOLD ME THIS OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS.”
“I love that,” Trump said.
