GUNS/IVANKA/MASS SHOOTINGS/TRUMP FAMILY: “Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago harshly criticized Ivanka Trump on Tuesday [8-6-19] after the president’s daughter weighed in on that city’s weekend of violence. Just after noon, Ms. Trump, a White House adviser, wrote on Twitter that ‘with seven dead and 52 wounded near a playground in the Windy City,’ the nation ‘mustn’t become numb’ to inner-city violence even as it reels from two mass shootings that killed dozens last weekend. The problem? Ms. Trump’s second tweet was not entirely accurate, according to Ms. Lightfoot. The numbers cited, seven dead and 52 wounded, included all the people in the city who were killed or hurt by gunfire over the weekend; they did not reflect the toll of a single shooting…The mayor’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Wednesday [8-7-19], but at the Tuesday news conference, Ms. Lightfoot lamented that there had been “zero contact” between Ms. Trump and the city before the tweets were published.”
