Wednesday President Trump was addressed to by an Ohio pastor, who said that he knows some Chicago gang leaders who would be willing to collaborate with the him in order to help stop the violence in the city.
Pastor Dr. Darrell Scott works at the New Spirit Revival Center in Ohio, and during an African American History Month meeting at the White House, stated that he was reached by “some of the top gang thugs in Chicago for a sit-down.”
Although we do not have the specifics of this get together, the pastor exclusively pointed out that they confirmed they wanted to “work with” Donald Trump’s administration and help to reduce the violence happening in the city.
“They respect you. They believe in what you’re doing,” he said.
“It’s a great idea because Chicago is totally out of control,” Trump said.
Donald trump has spoken of the violence in Chicago numerous times and stated that this issue needs to be resolved as soon as possible. He even posted on Twitter that he would be open to “send in the Feds” if the situation in the city does not improve.
Also, during his inauguration speech, he spoke of the “carnage” present in many American cities.
As far as Scott is concerned, he said he would travel to Chicago if necessary and also said the gang members informed him that “they’re gonna commit that if they lower that body count, we’ll come in and we’ll do some social programs.”
Furthermore, he stated that these gang members were not fans of Barack Obama’s work or administration.
“They reached out to me. They want to work with this administration. … They didn’t believe in the prior administration, they told me this out of their mouths.”
“I love that,” Trump said.
Trump also noted “we’re gonna have to do something about Chicago because what’s happening in Chicago should not be happening in this country.”
Numerous big cities in America are facing the exact same issue, so proper handling of the problem needs to be enforced.
