She’s one to be talking…
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted President Trump after he promised to strengthen police forces and suggested rather than strengthening the police Trump needed to enforce “commonsense gun reform.”
According to Breitbart, Lightfoot stated, “Those are the words of somebody who doesn’t understand the first thing about local policing, the — doesn’t understand the first thing about building authentic relationships with members of the community. Case in point is, look at the disastrous efforts of the federal government under this administration in Portland, it didn’t help, it hurt. It exacerbated problems. I’m not letting that happen in my city.”
“Yes, of course, we have our challenges, but the thing that the federal government is uniquely qualified to do is things like pass commonsense gun reform,” she added. “Make sure that everybody has background checks, stop the availability of assault weapons. People that are on a no-fly list shouldn’t be able to get weapons. The list goes on and on. The things that could really help cities to stop putting guns in the hands of criminals, this president has shown an absolute abject unwillingness to even discuss, let alone move on.”
