Donald Trump Tweets If Chicago Police Don’t Get Things Under Control He Will Send Feds And National Guard

The roots of Chicago’s gun violence epidemic are so deep and multifaceted that experts have long said law enforcement alone can’t solve it.

But in 24 characters of a tweet sent Tuesday night, President Donald Trump proposed his solution if Chicago can’t reduce the violence.

“I will send in the Feds!” Trump, who campaigned on a law-and-order platform, tweeted Tuesday night in a post that also quoted data on Chicago shootings published by the Tribune this week.

What exactly the president meant by the vague missive was a matter of open debate for hours Wednesday as law enforcement agencies scrambled to read between the lines and decide how — or even if — to respond.
