Rahm Emanuel served as Barack Obama’s White House Chief of Staff before being elected as mayor of Chicago in 2011. He has run Chicago much like Obama tried to run the country, resulting in high crime and violence and major economic problems. Chicago’s public schools have faced numerous issues and continues to struggle.
Yet, in the midst of all of the problems the Windy City continues to face, Emanuel’s approval ratings continue to climb. Some attribute his popularity to his open defiance and resistance to President Donald Trump. Not only did Emanuel declare Chicago to be a Trump-free zone, where the president is not welcome, but he continues to defend the city’s sanctuary status and defiance against the DOD and DOJ.
(Fox News) – Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel had a good year at the expense of city residents – and for that he might want to thank President Donald Trump.
Despite presiding over a city with rampant money and crime problems, Democrat Emanuel has bolstered his approval ratings and become the rising star of the left by placing himself front and center in the anti-Trump “resistance movement.”
Emanuel declared the Windy City a “Trump-free zone,” prevailed in a legal battle against the White House over threats to cut funding from sanctuary cities, and came out in strong support of combatting climate change – an apparent dig at Trump for pulling out of the Paris Agreement…
Emanuel’s rise of popularity demonstrates just how blinded and brainwashed so many people have become, thanks to the propaganda of the mainstream media. It’s also an indication that Emanuel is rising to a leading role in the anti-Trump camp and that rise could well make him a possible candidate to run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.
