President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday (January 24) to show his frustration with the ongoing violence in Chicago.
His tweet read: “If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!”
Common, in case you didn’t know, was born and raised in Chicago.
So when he was asked by TMZ what he thought about what’s happening in Chicago, he had some thoughts.
“I feel to help Chicago, we gotta take care of our own,” Common said. “Within the community, we gotta do things. There’s a lot of people out there already organizing and doing things. We need our state local people to do things. We don’t need that mentality so I’m not focused on the President right now. I’m focused on helping the people in the city and how we can do it.” Read more…
And when asked if he thought the President’s threats to “send in the Feds” was a bad idea, he didn’t have to say much. He just laughed and said, “You think?”
If Chicago doesn't fix the horrible "carnage" going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!
