Pastor Darrell Scott, Founder of the National Diversity Coalition for Donald Trump and also a member of the Trump Transitional Team broke the news today during a White House meeting.
Scott told President Trump gang leaders from Chicago had reached out to him wanting to have a sit down to discuss solutions to the murdering problem on their streets. President Trump reaffirmed that it could be a good idea to do that, but if changes don’t happen, there will have to be alternatives.
Not once did gang leaders meet with Obama or did he reach out to them publicly. This could be huge if the meeting could happen.
From CBS Chicago:
Taking a swipe at former President Obama, who began his political career as a community organizer in Chicago, Scott said the gangs “want to work with the administration … they believe in this administration; they didn’t believe in the prior administration. They told me this outta their mouths.”
“They reached out to me because they’re associating me with you. They respect you. They believe in what you’re doing, and they want to have a sit-down about lowering that body count. So in a couple weeks, I’m going into Chicago,” Scott said. “I said we’ve got to lower that body count. We don’t want to talk about anything else; get that body count down, and they agreed that the principals that can do it – these are guys straight from the streets, no politicians, straight street guys – but they’re going to commit that if they lower that body count, we’ll come in and we’ll do some social programs.”
Trump said, “I think that’s a great idea, because Chicago is totally out of control.”
“If they’re not going to solve the problem — and what you’re doing is the right thing — then we’re going to solve the problem for them, because we’re going to have to do something about Chicago, because what’s happening in Chicago should not be happening in this country,” Trump added.

You’re talking great news Pastor Scott if you can bring them to the table. Chicago’s death rate has been going up during Obama’s time in office, and this needs to stop and stop fast. Chicago doesn’t need a federal police presence because they would lose that in a huge way.
