CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Mayor Lori Lightfoot is responding to President Donald Trump’s latest slights against Chicago.

On Monday, President Trump lobbed insults at Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson during a speech at McCormick Place, saying the city’s violence is out of control.

On Friday, he did the same, on Twitter.

A morning tweet said that Chicago will never stop its crime wave with the current superintendent of police.

He then thanked officers and Fraternal Order of Police President Kevin Graham, who met Mr. Trump at O’Hare for his visit.

Mayor Lightfoot fired back on Twitter, saying Trump shouldn't really bring up the topic of crime: “The crime wave you should be concerned about is the one you are perpetrating against the American people from the White House."

U.S. House committees are investigating whether Trump tried to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political rivals in exchange for military aid.
