Allow him to explain…

What President Trump fails to understand is that America is a sanctuary country. Small, medium & large cities across the nation are suddenly & rapidly identifying as sanctuary cities because of the abandonment of Americans values, ideals & cultural destiny under Trump’s watch.

Emanuel has not been on hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett’s side.

Surprisingly enough, Rahm, has smacked down Smollett on a number of occasions since he was let off the hook with nothing more than a slap on the wrist.

However, Emanuel now says “toxic” President Trump is to blame for Jussie’s actions.

Yeah, for real.

From Breitbart:

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel blamed President Donald Trump in a press conference Thursday for the alleged hate hoax carried out by Empire Jussie Smollett, claiming that the president created a “toxic” and “vicious” cycle for which the star thought he could get away with the purportedly staged attack on himself.

“Look, I’ve always said from day one this is a Trump-free zone, the city of Chicago, and I mean it,” Emanuel told reporters. “Let me be really clear about something: The only reason Jussie Smollett thought he could take advantage of a hoax about a hate crime is for the environment, the toxic environment Donald Trump created.”

“This is a president who drew a moral equivalency between people who are trying to perpetuate bigotry and those who are trying to fight bigotry,” the mayor continued. “As somebody who started his own journey in politics fighting the neo-Nazis in Skokie and Marquette Park, President Trump should literally take his politics, move it aside.”

Emanuel wants Smollett to cut the city a $130,000 check.

More, via USA Today:

Chicago’s Department of Law sent Smollett a letter threatening that if the $130,000 “is not timely paid,” the city will go after him in court for making false statements, thus allowing them to collect more money from him under the municipal code.

According to the letter, violation of the false statement ordinance allows the city to collect up to three times the amount of damages the city sustains as a result of the violation – in Smollett’s case, that would be $390,000.

Emanuel said police department officials are still assembling the costs of the investigation that began shortly after Smollett reported to police on Jan. 29 that he was the victim of a brutal attack by assailants who yelled racial and homophobic slurs as they beat him. The actor also told police that the assailants yelled “This is MAGA country” during the assault.

More from Emanuel, per The Blaze:

“From top to bottom, this is not on the level,” Emanuel told reporters, adding “there needs to be a level of accountability throughout the system, and this sends an unambiguous message that there is no accountability, and that is wrong.”

The mayor also called the dropped charges a “whitewash of justice” and that the grand jury, which handed down 16 charges against Smollett, “could not have been clearer.”

Pick a lane, Rahm!
