You Won't Believe Who Chicago's Mayor Is Blaming For Their Skyrocketing Murder Rate

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot is completely failing her own city and driving it into the ground.

During the so-called "protests", she told her lawfully armed citizens to wait for the police to show up if their own homes were being invaded.

This is moronic beyond all comprehension. We have a right to defend our lives and property and the police might not even show up period given all that has transpired lately.

But despite her "leadership skills" Chicago is still having problems, so Lightfoot is now blaming Trump for their soaring murder rate, claiming Biden wouldn't have let things get this bad…

Mayor Lightfoot was interviewed by MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell where she blamed Trump for not doing enough to stop gun violence in Chicago.

ANDREA MITCHELL: I want to also ask you about the violence this past weekend in Chicago, at least 60 shootings. The president jumped all over this, comparing it to — saying the city is worse than Afghanistan. your reaction as you’re trying to come to grips with all of this?

MAYOR LORI LIGHTFOOT: Well, look, if you go back over many years, President Trump has said a lot of disparaging things about the city of Chicago. He likes to use us as a political punching bag. But if the president was really committed to helping us deal with our violence, he would do some easy things. One is, he would push for universal background checks. He would push for an assault weapons ban. He would push to make sure that people who were banned from getting on airplanes can’t get guns. This is the kind of thing that federal leadership can do.

As long as we are challenged with having states surrounding us, notably Indiana, that has very lax gun laws, where somebody can drive across the border and literally load up a vehicle with military-grade weapons and bring them back to the city of Chicago, we’re going to continue to be challenged,” she continued. “We’re doing an all-hands-on-deck strategy. We’re really focusing on the root causes of the violence. But fundamentally we have too many illegal guns on our street, and that is a direct result of a failure of federal leadership, which is why we need change in November. And we need the kind of leadership that Joe Biden is going to bring to our country.

Of course, Mayor Lightfoot is trying to blame President Trump for her massive failures as a leader.
