"“I think the president is still upset that we did not allow him to use our city as a backdrop for a campaign stop,” said Chicago Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, who has led some of the city’s opposition to the president. “We didn’t give him a forum. I think he’s still getting over that.”
Trump’s criticisms are grounded in fact — homicides and shootings have surged — but it’s also true that the City of Big Shoulders has had its own tendency to hit Trump hard, sometimes close to the belt.
Last summer, for instance, Chicago protesters thwarted Trump’s attempt to hold a large campaign rally in the city, essentially booing him off the stage before he could step foot onto it."
