Trump Just Did More To Help Chicago Than Obama Ever Did And That Really Bugs Libs
Former President Barack Obama could have helped his home city of Chicago to curb violent crime, but he didn’t.
Instead of listening to the people living in the neighborhoods, he thought gun control would be a better idea.
On Wednesday President Trump announced that Operation Legend would be expanded by sending additional resources to the city of Chicago. The President said Obama “could have gone into Chicago. He could’ve solved the problem, and he didn’t.”
Back in 2009, the Guardian reported that 42 people had been murdered “within a short drive of Barack Obama’s home” in the space of a year:
The centre of the blood-letting is the city’s poor and overwhelmingly black South Side, precisely the spot where Michelle grew up and Barack set out on his self-proclaimed “improbable journey” as a community organiser in his 20s. The geographical compactness of the carnage is spelled out inside the offices of the Black Star Project, an education programme for young black people. On the wall is a big map of the city. In the middle of the map, close to Lake Michigan, is a letter “A” pinpointing where the Obamas live. Yellow stickers cluster around the “A” like darts around the bullseye. Each one stands for a child under 18 who has died violently. The stickers all lie within black neighbourhoods of the city, while the white neighbourhoods are sticker-free. It is as if there are two Chicagos, two Americas, superimposed on the same map.
Aisha Latiker, 18, was outraged that Obama did nothing:
She has written two letters to the White House pleading for help to stop the killing. She is angry that she hasn’t heard back: “I ask President Obama can he not see what’s going on? Is his staff not relaying the message to him? Does anybody want to know why the youth are killing each other?”
Over the next seven and a half years Obama did nothing to help the violence in his city.
Hilariously when Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot was asked about the help the city is getting she went on an anti-Trump rant. Then she said the city would accept the help being provided from the federal government along with the financial support the city will receive.
She’s not going to say no to free money.
“In our case, they don’t want us in. We can solve the problem very easily. We’re equipped with the best equipment, the best people … Chicago should be calling us,” Trump said.
That’s what infuriates the left more than anything else, President Trump is doing more than Obama ever did.
