’Chicago worse than Afghanistan’, Trump says reacting to violence

President Trump tore into the soaring crime rates in cities including Chicago and Baltimore, comparing them to Afghanistan and Honduras. ’Chicago is an example, it is worse than Afghanistan. These cities, it’s like living in hell’, Trump said in a Fox News town hall. Chicago reached a grim milestone late last month when it saw 18 murders in one day. May 31 was the city’s deadliest day in 60 years.

I am actually curious what the murder rate in Chicago is vs. Kabul or Afghanistan in general.

Here is my prediction for the near future: Trump at some point will decide “enough is enough,” and will send in the National Guard, or the Army (or...). The situation will change from a protest, to a full on military massacre of people we know, who just went to peacefully protest. Remember Kent State? You put weapons in the hands of military men and women, what do you think will happen? They are not trained to de-escalate, and then you are back in the same bad situation. After all, he wants to dominate the streets.
