Emanuel’s office calls Trump ‘clueless,’ wrong on stop-and-frisk

Chicago's violent crime has repeatedly drawn national attention - and Trump's - as shootings and homicides climbed to levels not seen in almost two decades. "The crime spree is a awful blight on that city and we'll do everything possible to get it done". "I'm going to straighten it out and straighten it out fast".

"As the Justice Department found after an extensive investigation, Chicago residents and police officers have endured decades of serious problems that have endangered too many lives", she said. McGrath also notes that Chicago's homicide rate is falling.

"I've told them to work with local authorities to try to change the bad deal the city of Chicago entered into with ACLU which ties law enforcement's hands and to strongly consider 'stop and frisk.' It works, and it was meant for problems like Chicago", Trump said.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who has announced he will not seek a third term next year, has said he is confident the agreement "will stand the test of time".

Chicago-based ACLU official Karen Sheley says Trump has encouraged strong-arm tactics by police and the "solutions to violence in Chicago are not going to come from Donald Trump".

The White House and Justice Department didn't immediately respond to requests for more details on what Trump had asked Sessions to do. Although 2018 shooting deaths in Chicago are down to its lowest numbers compared to 2016 and 2017, Trump insists on reviving the controversial policy. However, the number of murders still exceeds those in Los Angeles and NY.

It was meant for it, stop and frisk. He has faced widespread criticism over his handling of gun violence.

Soon after becoming president, Trump tweeted, "If Chicago doesn't fix the awful "carnage" going on ..." Emanuel said he welcomed federal help but cautioned against the strictly "tough and rough" approach Trump seemed to advocate. The decree would likely stand as one of the most significant consequences of the push for police reform sparked almost three years ago with the release of the video of Officer Jason Van Dyke shooting Laquan McDonald 16 times.

The forthcoming consent decree is a product of a Justice Department investigation initiated shortly after the city was forced in November 2015 to release video of Van Dyke, a white police officer, shooting McDonald, a black teenager who was carrying a knife.

"The press wants to know, 'What did you talk about?'" Trump said later to an audience of police officials. Any time he brings up the issue, he quickly turns to insulting the city's Democratic leaders, presenting himself as its savior, or scaring his supporters.

But then Trump took office and appointed Sessions, who has criticized federal intervention in local law enforcement. They fight us at every turn.

They did talk, for about 45 minutes, but not alone, a White House spokesman said. Their meeting two weeks ago was postponed amid the Supreme Court nomination hearings.
