Chicago Mayor Lightfoot had very choice, very specific words for President Trump’s comments on the murder of George Floyd:
“I will code what I really want to say to Donald Trump It begins with F and ends with you.”
The mayor responded to a series of tweeted comments by the president and was upset by his continued rhetoric over the Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
“Donald Trump’s comment last night was profoundly dangerous. We must stand in firm solidarity and say this is totally unacceptable no matter who is the speaker,” Lightfoot said. “We see the game he is playing. It is so transparent and he is not very good at it. He wants to show failures on the part of Democratic local leaders to throw red meat to his base. His goal is to polarize and inflame racist urges. We can absolutely not let him prevail.”
