Donald Trump Threatens To Send The Feds Into Chicago

By HHL Editors

Crime has certainly been going up in the Chicago.

Yesterday night, newly elected President Donald Trump said he will send in the Feds if the city doesn't get things under control.

If Trump does make good on his threat it would be unusual: The Tenth Amendment makes the bar for the federal government's involvement in local law enforcement extremely high.

It would also be of questionable logic.

The current rate of violent crime in Chicago is remains lower than it was during the 70s and 90s, and is still half that of more crime-ridden cities like New Orleans, Detroit and St. Louis -- which Trump hasn't threatened with the Feds.

Do you think Trump is genuinely trying to solve the problem of crime in Chicago? Or is he trying to troll the city that the President he replaced is from?
