Trump campaign blames Rauner-signed law for Chicago violence increase
Thursday, Sep 29, 2016
* Last week, before the debate, I asked the governor’s office where Gov. Rauner stands on reinstating “stop and frisk.” Trump had said that this was absolutely needed in Chicago. This was the response…
Yep. The body cam bill did, indeed, lay down rules on stop and frisk. And the ACLU did back the proposal.
And Trump repeated his assertion during this week’s debate that stop and frisk must be implemented in the city.
* Now, check out this tweet from CNN’s Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta…
* Drill down…
So, maybe the governor will have to answer now that the Trump campaign is blaming a bill signed into law by Rauner for the increased crime problem in Chicago. Or not. He’s been awfully good at avoiding this topic.
