Trump Is Expected To Make First Presidential Visit to Chicago

By James Neequaye Kotey

President of U.S Donald Trump visited Chicago for the very first time since he took office. This visit was scheduled for Monday. Trump arrived in Chicago on Mid-Monday morning. First of all, he addressed the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference, which was held at McCormick Place. Then he attended a fundraiser at Trump International Hotel and Tower. 

Security Measures:

                For the safety of the president, many safety measures were taken. Safety barriers were put along the Chicago River and Wacker Drive. Many military airplanes were seen by people; this made them terrified. All these planes were doing test runs ahead of Trump’s visit.

International Association of Chiefs of Police [IUCP] :

                It is the world’s largest and most influential professional for Police leaders. It is committed to advancing the safety of communities worldwide. Trump made a speech in which he criticized the absence of Eddie Johnson. He said “There is one person who is not here today, he said where he is? That he wanted to talk to him. In fact, more than anyone else, this particular person should be there because maybe he could learn something, and that’s the superintendent of the Chicago police, Eddie Johnson.”


   Many people responded to the hateful statements of Trump. JB Pritzker, the governor, said: “This is a land of Lincoln, and when you come to this state, you should respect all the people who live here in the state of Illinois.”

 The mayor quickly  tweeted that  “luckily, in this city, we know the truth and we will not let anyone no matter how high, the office denigrate who we are as people or our status as a welcoming city.”
