Chicago Mayor Calls Out Ivanka Trump Over Tweet

Following two mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, Trump tweeted out not to ignore gun violence in Illinois' biggest city. As we grieve over the evil mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, let us not overlook that Chicago experienced its deadliest weekend of the year, Ivanka Trump, via Twitter.With 7 dead and 52 wounded near a playground in the Windy City -- and little national outrage or media coverage -- we mustn't become numb to the violence faced by inner city communities every day, Ivanka Trump, via Twitter.Her tweet prompted an angry response by Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who says Trump's comments on the number of casualties was incorrect.It wasn't a playground, it was a park. It wasn't seven dead. It wasn't 52 wounded in one incident, which is what this suggests. It's misleading. , Lori Lightfoot, via news conference. Lightfoot added that if Trump truly does care about the shootings in Chicago, she should discuss it with city officials.She also said that Trump's tweet is dangerous given her platform and outreach on social media.That's the danger of somebody with a platform and audience ... that doesn't know what they're talking about and getting the fundamental facts wrong that they can easily figure out if they had the decency to actually reach out to us if they wanted to be a constructive and engaged partner, Lori Lightfoot, via news conference.
