Over the Summer of 2020, Americans have watched as crime has exploded across major Democrat-run cities.
The president called for local leaders to end the wave of violent crime.
Instead, Democrats promised to defund the police.
With all other options off the table, President Trump sent in federal law enforcement.
“Operation Legend” has been criticized by Democrats, including Mayor Lightfoot of Chicago—who promised to refuse federal support.
She even called on Chicago residents to call 911 on federal law enforcement.
Call the cops on the cops… you can’t make that stuff up.
But, as expected, the Democrat mayor has not stopped Trump. In fact, she spoke with him over the phone in a sign of cooperation:
President Trump called Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Wednesday evening to confirm his plans to send 200 federal agents to the city to combat “a rampage of violence.”
…the mayor’s office said Trump “reached out to Mayor Lightfoot this evening to confirm that he plans to send federal resources to Chicago to supplement ongoing federal investigations pertaining to violent crime.”
Americans have been forced to ask why Democrats appear so unwilling to uphold law and order. Early in the Summer, Democrats ignored violence to focus on protests against police brutality.
But that movement ended long ago. Recent weeks have brought destruction, rioting, and death.
Perhaps the recent mass shooting in front of a funeral home was too much for Lightfoot to ignore. As the weeks roll on, more and more Chicago natives are being shot and killed.
As the toll climbs, it is becoming harder for Democrats to pretend its business as usual. They promised to defund police departments. Almost immediately, climb skyrocketed.
It seems this strategy to ignore the violence and accuse Trump of being a dictator is failing. The public appears to be blaming local leaders for this rash of crime.
Perhaps Mayor Lightfoot realized that all her posturing doesn’t matter if innocent children continue to die.
Standing up to Trump means little when your own people are being gunned down by criminals.
Whatever the case, it appears Lightfoot has been forced to eat her words. After saying Trump’s federal agents were not allowed in her city, she is agreeing to it.
Not that she can take credit for the soon-to-come drop in crime. She and her party were against it.
When things begin to settle down across the country, we all know who to thank.
This turn of events is a big win for the president—no matter how you look at it.
- After promising to refuse federal forces in Chicago, the mayor spoke with Trump on the phone.
- It appears Lightfoot is now cooperating with federal law enforcement, as crime rises in the city.
- This comes after weeks of crime and rioting across many blue cities.
