Biden Avoids Discussing Chicago Gun Violence at Event

President Biden traveled to Illinois this week for a speaking engagement but avoided commenting on Chicago’s rampant gun violence.

The president spoke at an event in the suburbs of McHenry County focusing on his Build Back Better plan with no mention of the deadly violence roiling the Windy City.

Breitbart reports:

Despite the death and suffering, Biden stuck to his “happy” theme Wednesday and touted the proposed changes the country could make to child care.

“All the data shows — if you’re able to take your child to work … you get increased productivity for the parent. … It really makes a … difference in terms of generating economic growth as well,” the president said. “It’s a win-win.”

Chicago Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot briefly met with Biden on the tarmac.

Just prior to Biden landing in Chicago, three undercover officers were shot on the South Side while on assignment.

Critics of Lightfoot commented on the violence in Chicago including Democrats – Chicago Alderman Raymond Lopez and former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

Chicago citizens voiced their concerns on social media.

Over the Independence Day holiday weekend, over 90 people were shot in Chicago including a 6-year-old girl.

Chicago Tribune reports, “It was the most people shot over a July 4 holiday weekend since at least 2017, when 103 people were shot between 3 p.m. Friday, June 30 and 6 a.m. Wednesday, July 5, 2017, according to Tribune data.”

While Biden avoids discussing Chicago’s gun violence and Lightfoot drags her feet to fix the crisis, Chicago citizens remain surrounded and threatened by rampant violence.
