Rahm Emanuel unloaded on Donald Trump today and told him how to do his job. Rahm is mayor of the nation’s murder capital and murders in Chicago have skyrocketed under his leadership.
There is an update since this article was posted. President Trump said on Twitter Tuesday that if Chicago doesn’t “fix the horrible carnage” of violence in the city, he will send the Feds to Chicago!
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!

Rahm needs to shut up and fix Chicago.
It’s amazing to see such moxie given the deplorable state of Chicago.
His advice to Trump: “You didn’t get elected to debate the crowd size at your inaugural. … You got elected to make sure that people have a job, that the economy continues to grow, people have security as it relates to their kids’ education. It wasn’t about your crowd size. It was about their lives and their jobs,” the mayor told the press.
Trump has expressed concerns about the rampant crime and killings in the inner cities, often mentioning the horror that is Chicago. It truly is carnage. This year alone, 45 people have been murdered in the city.
Those victims shall go nameless and faceless because there’s too many of them and their deaths don’t go with the narrative.
Trump’s website mentioned Chicago Tuesday.
“There were thousands of shootings in Chicago last year alone. … Our country needs more law enforcement, more community engagement and more effective policing,” the Trump administration posted on the White House website.
Trump vowed to preside over a “law and order administration” where the “dangerous anti-police atmosphere” will end.
Trump will have to intercede in Chicago because Rahm will never do it.
Greg Gutfeld let Rahm have it on The Five Tuesday. He referred to the killings in Chicago as Rahmicide.
