CHICAGO/CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “My Administration allocated $898.6 million to the City of Chicago and Cook County from the Coronavirus Relief Fund, which helps support your first responders on the front lines. In the absence of any modicum of leadership, however, these substantial sums of taxpayer money are not being turned into results, and the safety of your most vulnerable communities continues to deteriorate. These funds are in addition to those collected through your combined insatiable appetite to tax the people of Illinois and Chicago.”

-Donald Trump, “President Donald J. Trump’s Letter to the Governor of Illinois and Mayor of Chicago,” whitehouse.gov, June 26, 2020
