President Donald Trump has seen the carnage in Chicago, but he isn’t going to turn his back on the Democrat-controlled cesspool like Barack Obama did. While addressing Republicans in Philadelphia, Trump doubled down, asking, “What the hell is going on in Chicago?” The one-word response effectively summed up the root cause of the issue.
Obama’s hometown of Chicago is crumbling before our very eyes. With 44 murders already recorded this month alone, the city appears on pace to hit 60 homicides in the opening month of 2017, which would exceed the two-decade record set last year.
It doesn’t help that Mayor Emanuel is about as liberal as they come and has vowed to buck federal immigration laws by offering safe haven to dangerous illegal aliens who have taken refuge in his city. Trump threatened to “send in the feds” if Emanuel can’t right the sinking ship.
So, it’s no wonder Trump tweeted, “If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24 percent from 2016), I will send in the Feds!”
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!

There’s definitely a problem in Chicago, and the numbers don’t lie. According to Zero Hedge, 44 murders have been recorded this month in Chicago thus far, and the city appears on pace to hit 60 homicides in January, which would break the two-decade record set this month in 2016.
So, to what do we owe this stunning level of bloodshed? Democrats, my friends. Democrats. And, apparently, we aren’t the only ones who think so.
After our new president recently asked what the hell is going on, someone in the audience wasn’t afraid to give the 1-word answer we already know is true as you hear one brave voice answer “Democrats.”
Liberal leadership from the top down has crippled the police force in Chicago, with Obama delegitimizing law enforcement by calling them a racist organization which habitually uses deadly force where it is unnecessary. If we take an objective look at the violence in Chicago, free from the biased lens of political correctness, it becomes clear that the only ones employing habitual and deadly force unnecessarily are the criminals killing off the city’s population.
President Donald Trump has already made it clear that under his administration, respect for law enforcement will be restored. “We will continue to stand with the incredible men and women of law enforcement,” he told lawmakers in Philadelphia this week. Regardless what liberals may think, Trump may be Chicago’s last hope.
