Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot was ready with an answer when she was asked if there was anything she’d like to say to Donald Trump.
“I will encode what I really want to say to Donald Trump. It’s two words: It begins with ‘F’ and it ends with ‘U.’” she said on Friday.
A tweet the president posted early Friday morning caused Lightfoot’s comment. The tweet threatened protesters demanding the arrest of the four Minneapolis police officers responsible for George Floyd’s death by saying, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
The Chicago mayor also said the president’s comment “was profoundly dangerous,” according to WGN TV. “And we must stand firm in solidarity and say this is totally unacceptable no matter who the speaker is.”
Lightfoot added: “And we see the game he is playing. Because he’s transparent and he’s not very good at it.”
