Murders and violent crime in the city of Chicago are out of control.

Trump has been trying to help, but up until now, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has resisted the president’s assistance.

Now she is finally taking the much needed help.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Grudgingly Accepts Federal Law Enforcement Help

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has accepted President Donald Trump’s offer of federal law enforcement officials to help fight crime in Chicago — but says they must not patrol protests, as federal officials are doing in Portland, Oregon.

President Trump and Mayor Lightfoot spoke Wednesday evening, after the administration announced that it would surge federal law enforcement agents to Chicago and other cities suffering from a wave of violent crime in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests. The protests have prompted police to scale back patrols — in some cases at the behest of politicians.

Lightfoot claimed that Trump “realized that what he did in Portland was a grave abuse of his presidential power,” though it was not clear that the president had made any such admission.

The Department of Homeland Security has sent agents to protect the federal courthouse in downtown Portland, which has been vandalized and firebombed by black-clad rioters associated with Black Lives Matter protests. Some 200 federal officials are expected to be deployed to Chicago.

This is quite a turnaround. What changed her mind? Maybe the residents of her city, who are tired of the violence.

The left seems determined to destroy American cities. It’s sad.
