Rahm Emanuel Blames Donald Trump for His War Zone

Rahm Emanuel, failed mayor of Chicago

The Hill reports that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel bawled out Donald Trump for his comments in his joint address to Congress about Chicago violence.

Rahm’s trying to transfer the blame for his war zone on to Trump.

You might had thought it was Rahm’s job to run Chicago, apparently Rahm thinks it’s Trump’s.

“We have repeatedly made specific requests of the administration for greater law enforcement integration and resources; a higher priority placed on federal gun prosecutions; and funds restored toward mentoring and after-school and summer jobs programs that have proven to be positive alternatives for our young people,” Emanuel said in a statement following Trump’s address. “Because this is so important, I’ll always be ready with this list whenever the President asks.”

He wants more money to promote his failed policies in other words. He claimed he “repeatedly” made requests of the administration but Trump’s only been president since November.

During his speech, Trump called out the murder rate in Chicago.

“In Chicago, more than 4,000 people were shot last year alone — and the murder rate so far this year has been even higher,” he said. “This is not acceptable in our society.”

But Emanuel challenged the president on why he’s not doing a better job in his city.

“The better question, I’d suggest, is whether the President cares enough about violence in our city to do more than talk or tweet about it,” Rahm said.

Actually, the better question is why doesn’t Rahm do a better job in Chicago. It’s more dangerous than Iraq.

In a January tweet, Trump warned that he would send federal authorities to Chicago to help fix “the horrible ‘carnage” in the city. In another tweet last month, he once again said the city “needs help.” The kind of help he wants to give is not the kind Rahm wants.
