PAT BATEMAN| When Donald Trump tells you he is going to do something you can be sure he is going to follow though. Chicago is learning this the hard way after last week trump promised to send Feds into Chicago to clean the violence up and today they are on their way.
Just today Trump directed the ATF to compile and deploy a ‘special task force’ of 20 top agents from the DC headquarters to headd up a new Chicago Gun Crime Strike Force.
This is a strong move seeing as this increases the number of ATF agents in the city by 50%, swelling their ranks to 60 agents.
The move took Chicago Mayor, Rham Emmanuel, by surprise though the Rham had earlier said he welcomed the FBI & DEA to come join the fight.
Aa ATF spokesman said:
‘ATF is exploring various options as we are committed to furthering law enforcement efforts in Chicago.’
‘One of those options is to send additional agents to Chicago on permanent transfers. ATF is still early in the process of developing strategies and will be prepared to discuss these options further once plans are finalized.’
Chicago is a great example of what happens to a city when the Democrats get their claws on them. From Aleppo to Chicago anything the Democrats touch turns to crap. This is a big risk for Trump politically, he could have let the Democrats own Chicago and it’s violence but Trump is more concerned with the wellbeing of the people than the political points to be had. This is exactly why Trump is the man we need right now. H/T
