What Chicago’s Mayor Is Blaming Her City’s Crime On Is Absolutely Laughable! kristel July 6, 2021 Uncategorized Lori Lightfoot, the mayor of Chicago, is a complete failure. The city has more murders in a weekend than most cities have in a year, and this has been the case since she took office. Things have only gotten worse since the pandemic and the lockdowns. Despite this, she attempted to blame Trump in a recent interview. It’s just so pitiful. According to NewsMax: Chicago Mayor Blames Trump for Crime ‘Surge’; Calls Newsmax ‘Incendiary’ After blaming former President Donald Trump for Chicago’s violence, and pleading for people to “acknowledge” a “surge of violence” in her city, Mayor Lori Lightfoot told Newsmax the data is trending down, calling a question about a crime surge “insulting” and the questioner a “failed political candidate.” “It is incredibly gratifying to have a partner in the White House who understands the appropriate and unique role that the federal government has to play in public safety at the local level; for four years we were ignored, over and over again,” Lightfoot said about Chicago’s crime surge during her Friday evening briefing, which came after meeting with the Chicago City Council that was spurred by Newsmax questioning one week ago. “I started raising these issues from the moment I became mayor. We needed more help from our federal partners.” Lightfoot, whose facts on Trump were false, praised President Joe Biden and the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms for assisting on “crime gun” seizures in the city, noting a dangerous July 4 weekend to come. “This is a very challenging weekend, historically, going back decades,” Lightfoot told reporters, suggesting the “six hours of questioning” in a City Council meeting was untimely and potentially taking away from crime fighting for the dangers of the weekend ahead.
