Lightfoot Seeks Biden Help on Chicago Violence After Rejecting Trump a Year Ago

Chicago Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot is seeking help from President Biden over the rampant violence in the Windy City but refused help from former President Trump last year.

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

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.

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

Yahoo News reports:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has requested President Joe Biden send federal troops to her city amid a rising crime wave, an offer she previously rejected under former President Donald Trump.

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

Critics of Biden and Lightfoot commented on social media.

Chicago citizens voiced their concerns on social media.

Former President Trump was looking out for the safety and security of Chicagoans by offering to deploy federal troops last year to address the rampant violence.

Countless deaths and injuries in Chicago could have been avoided had Lightfoot put her constituents first instead of politics.

Clearly, Lightfoot put politics before the safety of the people of Chicago.
