The president also repeated claims that American communities are not safe:We need safer communities, and we’re going to do that with law enforcement. We’re going to make it safe. We’re going to make it much better than it is right now. Right now it’s terrible.Recent F.B.I. data indicates that crime rates have been dropping for decades, despite a slight uptick in violent crimes in 2015 that was mostly concentrated in urban areas, including Chicago, which Mr. Trump referred to as “totally out of control.”

Le Pen, one of the front-runners in upcoming French presidential polls, had until midnight Tuesday to repay nearly €300,000 ($325,000) but she bluntly rejected the demand just before the deadline. The European Parliament says Le Pen, who is also an MEP as well as leader of France’s National Front, incorrectly used the funds to pay an aide, Catherine Griset, who was based at the party’s headquarters in Paris and not at the assembly, which meets in both Brussels and Strasbourg, eastern France. The parliamentary source in Brussels, who asked not to be named, said the aim was not to punish Le Pen but to recover the funds involved. Le Pen and her representatives had had “many occasions” to explain her position, the source said.

Just in case anyone has doubts about Chicago and why President Bannon and Co. are so focused on it:1. It’s where #44 is from.2. They need a place to make an ‘example’ of ‘ those people’ (and you know who those people are)3. Chicago ran his ass out of town during the election cycle, and prevented him from having one of his Klan rallies. Been pissed ever since. But, we know which way is up…in cast you’ve forgotten, here’s an on point and educational Twitter feedI will post this Twitter feed:Mikki Kendall Verified account@KarnythiaTrump is going to use Chicago to test drive a plan to break cities with military force. They’re going to try to normalize racist violence.Mikki Kendall Verified account@KarnythiaIt will look like the Red Summer of 1919. Like Black Wall Street in Tulsa. And they will claim they did it to save the city.

We are revolting against white supremacy, and how this beast keeps us segregated. We are revolting against power-hungry politicians who take our rights away while claiming to represent us. We are revolting against oppression that keeps minorities at a disadvantage. We are revolting against the dehumanization of all others.This is not an attack on white people. This is an attack on everything that undervalues, undermines, and delegitimizes black and brown people. When we are truly liberated from 21st-century-style slavery and oppression in the form of mass incarceration, poverty, profiling, murder by law enforcement, etc., only then can we truly be equal.
