Chicago’s mayor criticized President Donald Trump for always tweeting about the city’s violence Tuesday.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel called on Trump to stop tweeting about the violence and instead send the resources the city needs, according to a statement.
“We have repeatedly made specific requests of the administration for greater law enforcement integration and resources; a higher priority placed on federal gun prosecutions; and funds restored toward mentoring and after-school and summer jobs programs that have proven to be positive alternatives for our young people,” the statement read.
Emanuel went on to say he would have the list available should Trump decide to help, rather than just tweet about it.
“The better question, I’d suggest, is whether the President cares enough about violence in our city to do more than talk and tweet about it,” Emanuel said.
Trump tweets about Chicago and its violence often. As the violence continues to rage in the city, the president has threatened to send in the feds to put a stop to it.
He also touched on the increase in homicides in his Tuesday night address to Congress.
