WATCH: Chicago Declared ‘Trump-Free Zone’

Mayor Rahm Emanuel went on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and made quite a bold statement, calling the whole city of Chicago a ‘Trump-Free Zone.’

“Our motto: A city he’ll never sleep in,” Emanuel said of President Donald Trump.

He outlined the reasons why Trump was not welcomed in Chicago, his biggest reason being that the city is ‘moving forward’ and Trump’s policy isn’t.

Ironically Colbert immediately discussed the fact that Chicago is a ‘Sanctuary City’ that welcomes illegal aliens.

“We’re building relationships between the police department and communities. I’m not driving a wedge. That’s what Donald Trump wants, is a wedge on the philosophy of community policing. It’s absolutely antithetical to everything we’re trying to do. Police chiefs around the country all think the Justice Department under Trump is driving a wedge, and a difference between communities and the police department, when we’re trying to build that trust,” Emanuel said.
