“Where is he?” – President Trump calling out Chicago Police Chief Eddie Johnson for boycotting the president’s speech in Chicago

Eddie Johnson’s decision not to attend the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s  (IACP) annual convention in Chicago prompted a vote of “no confidence” from the city’s Fraternal Order of Police, a union that represents thousands of officers.

If that wasn’t brutal enough, Johnson was smoked by President Trump for not attending the event today.

President Trump called him out and didn’t hold back:

“There is one person that is not here today. We’re in Chicago. I said, where is he? I want to talk to him. In fact, more than anyone else, this person should be here because maybe he could learn something. And that’s the Superintendent of Chicago Police Eddie Johnson.”

Eddie Johnson is a puppet to the Jesse Jackson’s of Chicago. He’s unable to meet President Trump who wants to meet with him because he’s beholden to the Democrats.

 “Here is a man that could not bother to show up for a meeting of police chiefs, most respected people in the country, in his hometown and with the President… And you know why? It’s because he is not doing his job.”

Johnson held a press conference after President Trump’s speech. The spin is out of control with this guy. He’s trying to straddle the fence to appease the Democrats and those who want crime to be lower. Everything coming out of his mouth is rhetoric. 

Johnson, would NOT comment on 1,162 ICE detainers that were IGNORED by Chicago Police for murderers, rapists, and other violent criminals. In the video below he uses the tied mantra that we can’t scare the illegals by using ICE to capture criminal illegal aliens. We need to be “welcoming” or they won’t talk to us.

Johnson lied and said President Trump criticized the Chicago Police Department: He did not!

Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President Kevin Graham disagrees with Johnson’s boycott of Trump’s visit and spoke with Fox & Friends:

“He is the president of the United States. And, the reality of this is there are plenty of times I’ve sat listening to speeches that I didn’t care for, and I certainly didn’t walk out on them.”

Graham has noted that Chicago has “derived a great deal of support” from President Trump. He pointed out help with ATF agents and federal prosecutors that “prosecute our gun laws because our local prosecutor hasn’t done the job.”

This was embarrassing and this man should be fired but you can bet that won’t happen. This is Chicago where the corruption comes first…the people second.
