Chicago Mayor Begging Major Retailers Not To Abandon Riot-Ravaged City


Mayor Lightfoot is out of her mind. Not only has she allowed criminals to take over her city, but she has also threatened to arrest citizens who violate her tyrannical social distancing rules.

November needs to be a wipe out for the Democrats. No party this dangerous should have any kind of political power in the Unite States.

“My hope is that they will come back,” Lightfoot said of Walmart’s evaluation of how to proceed in Chicago.

The mayor made the comments after she spoke with a number of retailers that have locations closed due to damage.
