He is definitely making sure his promise of making America safe again and with him and the partnership with the Doj and making sure they release federal agencies to Chicago its very important. You know I understand that some much these communities dont want the federal agents in there because they are scared that the crime will flair up, even for because of you who the direction of our country right now and all the emotion, but the president says I cant just stand by any longer and
just watch this. What am I supposed to do? Just let everyone pull out their guns and shoot people at funerals. That funeral was for a guy killed by gun violence.
