Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Who Refused Help From Trump Now Begs Feds To Save The City From Crime

In the spring of 2020, when mobs of rioters were burning and looting Chicago, then President Trump offered to help her and the city by sending in the National Guard.

Lightfoot treated the offer like an insult and said that Trumps troops were not welcome in Chicago.

Now that the city is drowning in crime, shootings and murders, she is begging the feds to save them.

Chicago mayor who pushed $80M defund of cops now pleads for feds to save city

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot — who last year proposed cutting $80 million from her city’s police budget — publicly pleaded with the feds on Monday to bolster the ranks of her city’s cops amid a surge in shootings and homicides.

Lightfoot called on US Attorney General Merrick Garland to send agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to the Windy City for a six-month crackdown on illegal guns.

“We cannot continue to endure the level of violence that we are now experiencing,” Lightfoot said during a 40-minute speech.

“I feel the urgency every day.”

The desperation move made Lightfoot — who’s said she opposes the “defund the police” movement — the second big-city Democratic mayor in days to announce dramatic steps to restore law and order as crime spirals out of control…

In Chicago, the number of shooting victims reached 4,270 on Sunday, up nearly 9 percent from the 3,930 people shot during the same period last year, according to police statistics obtained by the Chicago Tribune.

Meanwhile, homicides have increased 5 percent, from 749 to 783, making the Windy City the deadliest in the nation.

What changed? As if we didn’t know.

Maybe if she accepted Trump’s help last year she wouldn’t be in this position.
