Mayor LOSES It On Air, Deals LOW Blow To Trump

She better be ready for what comes next.

According to Breitbart News, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot attacked President Trump’s response to the coronavirus stating that the Trump administration is “creating a disaster.”

Lightfoot said, “When the federal government doesn’t listen and when it doesn’t bring the considerations of mayors and governors and other local officials into the equation, not only are you creating a disaster, not only are you creating a hazardous circumstance that threatens the public, you risk causing serious illness and death.”

She added, “Regarding staffing for customs and border patrol, the federal government must immediately and significantly increase personnel devoted to airport screening. And rather than sending ICE into the streets, send screeners to our airports. That’s what we need. That’s what will be helpful.”

Reporter Wendy Woolfolk said, “The mayor is acknowledging, though, that today is still going to be another tough day at Chicago international airport. She asked the Federal Aviation Administration to stagger the arrival times of flights that are already on their way to O’hare. She’s asking them to keep passengers on planes until they can be processed, two very good ideas by a local jurisdiction that certainly has perspective here. She’s hoping to get through some of this red tape and get local EMTs that can screen these passengers.” You can read the full article here.

    Close down Chicago’s O’hare Airport. Maybe that’ll satisfy the mayor.
