美国当选总统川普星期一说,芝加哥市的市长,前白宫办公厅主任伊曼纽尔如不能降低美国第三大城市芝加哥飙升的谋杀率,就应该寻求联邦执法帮助。

川普星期一在推特发文说,“芝加哥的谋杀率创下纪录。 2016年共有 4,331名枪击受害者,762人被杀,杀人案平均每天两起以上。”

川普还说,“如果市长不能改变这种情况,他就必须要求联邦帮助!”

芝加哥2016年的谋杀率是20年来最高的,超过美国另外两大城市纽约和洛杉矶的总和。芝加哥的谋杀率高常常是贫穷社区帮派争斗和毒品纠纷造成的。

芝加哥市长伊曼纽尔是川普的政治反对派。他担任过奥巴马总统的白宫办公厅主任,2010年离开华盛顿,之后两次成功竞选有270万居民的芝加哥市市长。

尽管伊曼纽尔批评过川普,但他和其他大城市市长一样,在1月20日新总统就职典礼之前会见了川普。在12月的会议上,伊曼纽尔敦促川普重新考虑其在非法移民问题上的强硬立场。川普在竞选中声称要严厉打击非法移民。

Trump: Chicago Mayor Ought to Seek US Help If He Can't Cut Murder Rate

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said Monday that the mayor of crime-ridden Chicago, former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, ought to seek federal law enforcement help if he can't control the soaring murder rate in the country's third biggest city.

Trump, in a Twitter comment, said, “Chicago murder rate is record-setting — 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016,” more than two slayings a day.

“If Mayor can't do it he must ask for federal help!” Trump said.

The Chicago murder toll, often the result of gang turf wars and drug disputes in impoverished neighborhoods, was the city's highest in 20 years and eclipsed the combined total of New York and Los Angeles, the two biggest American cities.

Emanuel, a Trump political opponent, served early on as President Barack Obama's White House chief of staff. Emanuel left Washington in 2010 to run the first of his two successful campaigns to be mayor of Chicago, with its 2.7 million residents.

Despite his past attacks on Trump, Emanuel, like other big-city mayors, has met with the president-elect ahead of his January 20 inauguration. During their December meeting, Emanuel urged Trump to reconsider his hard-line stance against illegal immigration, one of the hallmarks of the real estate mogul's upset win for the presidency.
