Chicago FOP President meets with Trump at White House”

Jim Pasco, executive director of the union, told Reuters that while law enforcement officials do not support the idea of sanctuary cities, any funding cuts could curb police departments' abilities to pursue criminals and reduce local crime.

Tuesday, Trump again singled out Chicago.

But Trump and Sessions went ahead and doubled-down on the threats anyway.

"Last year in Chicago 4,368 people were shot".

The FOP backed Trump in the November election.

Trump said he took measures already to enhance domestic security by creating a task force on reducing violence. Almost 700 more have already been shot since January of this year, alone.

He said everyone else appeared "normal" and he didn't recall any discussions about Bradley's whereabouts. Prosecutors say Hernandez shot Bradley because, as a witness to the Boston shooting, he knew too much.

During the election and since becoming president on January 20, Trump has been bringing up Chicago's ongoing struggle to reduce violent crime in the city, threatening at one point to "send in the Feds". "I ask what's going on in Chicago", he said. The meeting included Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. They advocate for improved working conditions for law enforcement officers and for the safety of our communities. Angelo said much of the conversation with the president centered on the men and women in uniform, and how they're perceived by the public. Gen. Kelly has done a fantastic job on the border.

The White House is following up its longshot roster of budget cuts with a wish list of $18 billion in reductions, including cuts to medical research, infrastructure and community development grants.

"I guess you probably know the numbers were extremely lopsided, right?"

Police union leaders have warned President Donald Trump against cutting federal funding to so-called "sanctuary cities" in his ongoing crackdown on illegal immigration. Angelo said the consent decree was not discussed during the meeting, but other issues were including standards for hiring and retaining officers, and reporting requirements that the union said has led to a decline in traffic stops.
