Are a civilized country or not?

DO IT, Mr. President. Chicago’s citizens are being slaughtered because of the policies of a corrupt and pro-criminal mayor. Action must be taken.

Trump may deploy federal agents to Chicago this week: is Portland-style response an option?

If Trump sends a Portland-style military action to Chicago, it would represent a dramatic escalation between Trump and Mayor Lightfoot.

By Chicago Sun Times, July 20, 2020

President Donald Trump and his administration hinted Sunday that federal agents may be deployed to Chicago as soon as this week to crack down on protests and gun violence in a military-style response similar to Portland, Oregon.

If Trump sends a Portland-style action to Chicago, it would represent a dramatic escalation between Trump and Mayor Lori Lightfoot regarding how to deal with the city’s ongoing battles against gun violence and demonstrations against racial injustice and police brutality.

In a Sunday Twitter post, Trump said, “The Radical Left Democrats, who totally control Biden, will destroy our Country as we know it. Unimaginably bad things would happen to America. Look at Portland, where the pols are just fine with 50 days of anarchy. We sent in help. Look at New York, Chicago, Philadelphia. NO!”

Lightfoot on Monday said she has “great concerns” about the use of federal agents, given what had happened in Portland.

“We don’t need federal agents without any insignia taking people off the streets,” Lightfoot said at a morning news conference.

If Trump is sincere in helping, she said, he should so something about the fact that there are “way too many illegal guns on the streets” because they’re “flowing over the border” from Indiana and southern states.

He should empower the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives to “do what they’re supposed to do — go after illegal gun sales,” Lightfoot said.
