President Trump is going to Chicago
For now, the details have not yet been disclosed, but from 26 to 29 October in Chicago there will be an international conference of police commanders (International Association of Chiefs of Police) and it is possible that President Trump may give a speech at her.
A year ago, in a speech given at the same conference in Orlando, Florida, the president said that criminal crime is a "terrible plague" in our city. He suggested that the police implement a controversial "stop and frisk" tactic, i.e. stop and search suspect without the need to state a reason.
Donald Trump already in the presidential campaign talked about crime with weapons in Chicago, comparing its scale, among others. to war countries in the Middle East.
Donald Trump was scheduled to rally in our city on March 11, 2016 during the presidential campaign at the University of Illinois, but was canceled about half an hour before its scheduled start due to security concerns.
Donald Trump was twice in other parts of Illinois as president. In 2018, on July 26, 2018, he spoke at the steel mill in Granite City, near St. Louis, and on October 27, 2018, Trump supported the Republican party candidates in Murphysboro.
During the planned visit to our city, President Trump is to participate in meetings where donations for his campaign in the fight for re-election will be collected. Todd Ricketts, co-owner of the Chicago Cubs, is involved in their organization.
It is not yet known where such a meeting with the president will be organized, but his hotel Trump International Hotel & amp; Tower at 401 N. Wabash Ave or another place in the city center.
In the invitation to the event, where the funds for the campaign will be raised, which received the Chicago Tribune, three different levels of donations are exchanged, from $ 2,800 for lunch ticket, through $ 35,000 from a couple and a photo with the president, after $ 100,000 for the opportunity to take places at the table with Trump. The collected money will be transferred to Trump Victory - the president's campaign fund and to the account of the National Committee of the Republican Party (RNC).
