‘Facts Matter’: Chicago Police Chief Fires Back At Trump Over Lie-Filled Speech – Watch

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson, who was attacked by Donald Trump during his speech in Chicago, fired back at the president for spreading falsehoods to the nation about his city.

Johnson laughed off Trump’s claim that a single police officer could solve Chicago’s crime problem in one day.

“Facts matter and everyone in this room knows that,” Johnson told reporters. “I’m exceptionally proud of the work being done by the 13,400 men & women of the Chicago Police Department and our partners in the communities that they serve. This administration has hurt many communities in Chicago, but CPS is here, & will always be here, to stand up for them.”

Johnson reportedly laughed out loud when one reporter asked about Trump’s claim that an anonymous “motorcycle cop” told him that he could solve Chicago’s crime problem in “one day.”

“As far as this mystery cop… I know that the interim superintendent at the time did an exhaustive search [for] this person,” Johnson said. “We were never able to identify him. And we spent a lot of time trying to identify this person.”

“That person doesn’t exist,” he revealed. “Nobody, nobody… would claim that they said that to him.”
