The President is set to dispatch around 150 more Federal Agents to Chicago, but the city's Democrat Mayor, Lori Lightfoot, isn't happy!
Vowing to stop the President she wrote on Twitter “Under no circumstances will I allow Donald Trump’s troops to come to Chicago and terrorize our residents.”
But literally as she typed those very words, the bullets were flying on Chicago's South Side and at least 15 people were being gunned down in her city outside a funeral parlor! All were wounded and are in various conditions ranging from serious to critical. Some of the mourners returned fire and one person is now in custody.
The Chicago Sun-Times says this is "the largest number of victims in a single Chicago shooting in recent memory".
According to the newspaper, Chicago Police First Deputy Supt. Eric Carter said several police evidence markers were placed near spent bullet casings "lying outside the entrance to Rhodes Funeral Services on the north side of the block. All told, Carter said, police recovered 60 of them."
Meanwhile the President is sending in additional Federal Agents to try and quell the violence.
Is he right?
