  • President Trump visiting sites of weekend mass shootings

Lightfoot, who was inaugurated in May as Chicago's first female African-American mayor, called out the factual inaccuracies of the presidential adviser's tweets.

Trump, in keeping with her family's commitment to alternative facts, got all the details wrong and has been accused of being "misleading" in her tweets, the Huffington Post reports.

According to a Tribune tracker of violence in the city , 293 people have died by homicide so far through July 2019, with a majority of those cases resulting from shootings.

Ivanka Trump's tweet read: "As we grieve over the evil mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, let us not overlook that Chicago experienced its deadliest weekend of the year", she tweeted Tuesday morning.

"Seven people shot and killed yesterday in Chicago". The host then suggested she visit Chicago to speak with Lightfoot and "walk the streets and learn something".

As of Tuesday afternoon, Ivanka Trump's tweet had received about 11,500 likes and 2,800 retweets - a fact that Lightfoot called "the danger of somebody with a platform and audience that time that doesn't know what they're talking about - and getting the fundamental facts wrong that they could easily figure out, if they had the decency to actually reach out to us if they wanted to be a constructive and engaged partner".

She also dismissed Trump mistakenly referring to Dayton as "Toledo" in his address to the nation on Monday as an example of "people from the coast" not understanding OH, "and they think all OH cities are the same".

"If the president weighs in, if he shows these Republicans that they can actually have courage, we can get this done", Lightfoot added.

A Highway Crash, Then a Deadly Shooting
Police are still searching for the gunman, and are investing whether his actions were the result of road rage or some other cause. The suspect's auto , which was carrying one other passenger, struck the victims' vehicle , causing it to spin out on the road.

"Her point remains the same, we can not ignore the gun violence that happens in cities across this country on a daily basis", the spokeswoman said, according to HuffPost.

Ivanka Trump is under fire after tweeting about Chicago's deadliest weekend, which left seven people dead and 55 injured due to gun violence.

On Tuesday, Lightfoot was asked she thought if Ivanka Trump's tweet about Chicago violence was an attempt to push back against comments Lightfoot had made. "And it's misleading", Lightfoot said.

Those incidents were drawing a national focus on some her father's incendiary rhetoric as well as cyclical debates about gun control for military-style assault weapons that can be purchased legally in the U.S.

"Because the chief of our nation, I implore the president to set a greater, clearer ethical tone, as a result of what he's been doing is blowing each racist xenophobic canine whistle, and while you try this, while you blow that sort of canine whistle, animals come out", Lightfoot stated on Monday.

Lightfoot and U.S. Sen.

Neighborhoods in Chicago participated in National Night Out on Tuesday as a way to help end the violence that has hit their city. He did not mention the mayors of El Paso and Dayton, though both have said they expect to meet with the president. It admonished Trump for calling El Paso one of the country's most risky cities in his February State of the Union address. "He does nothing to help", the senator said, while not addressing billions of dollars in federal taxpayer money that pours into mismanaged cities annually. Lightfoot said she didn't know and didn't especially care. Liberty Headlines editor Paul Chesser contributed.
