Trump's feds arrive in Chicago to fight violence

Trump, unlike Barack Obama, is doing something to combat violence in Chicago.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
In January, President Donald Trump tweeted that he'd "send in the Feds!" to Chicago, citing the city’s miserable statistics on shootings.

Well, his administration did just that.

On Thursday, authorities confirmed that about 20 additional agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have been sent to Chicago to combat gun violence here.

And on Friday morning, Trump tweeted about the whole thing, saying "Crime and killings in Chicago have reached such epidemic proportions that I am sending in Federal help. 1714 shootings in Chicago this year!"
