Earlier this week, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot ripped into President Donald Trump after he blasted her for allowing a growing portion of her city to become a free-for-all shooting gallery where scores of people, most of them black, are gunned down on a daily basis.
“I don’t need leadership lessons from Donald Trump,” the defiant — and tone-deaf — mayor retorted.
I don't need leadership lessons from Donald Trump.

Well mayor, you could use them from someone, because your (mostly black) citizens are being slaughtered daily. And now, one of the latest victims is a 20-month-old boy.
Are you proud of that?
Fox News reports:
Shots fired from one vehicle into another on a Chicago street killed a 20-month-old boy sitting in his car seat, according to reports.
'It seems like just yesterday, it was actually last Saturday, I was in front of you all talking about a 3-year-old that was killed in the Austin community, and now here in Englewood, a 20-month-old was killed,' Chicago Police Chief of Operations Fred Waller said, according to CBS 2 Chicago.
'This is happening far too often,' he said. 'Too many times children are killed by senseless violence, and not only just children but grownups also. When is this going to stop? When are we going to say enough is enough?'
A 3-year-old boy, Mekhi James, was also the victim of a drive-by shooting. He was sitting in a car his father was driving when he was struck.
Police said the toddler was shot in the chest. A bullet grazed his 22-year-old mother in the head.
'No doubt we'll catch the person who did it. We'll catch the person who killed that 3-year-old. We'll catch the person who killed this kid. But that's not going to bring that kid back, and that's not going to satisfy that family,' Waller said.
No, it won’t. Or any of the other nearly dozen people (not all of them innocent, truth be told) who were gunned down just this weekend.
When is it going to be ‘enough is enough?’
That depends, chief.
It depends on whether virtue-signaling leaders, black and white, of these violent American cities drop the platitudes and political one-liners and get serious about enforcing laws, empowering police, rejecting Left-wing social justice prosecutors, and putting their residents first.
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
He wants zero rates and QE4!
You must prepare for the financial reset
