A new President should have been an exciting event for Chicago. Yes, Obama tried to connect with black population there. However, under his administration, Chicago saw an increase in crime and poverty. They could have seen President Trump as an opportunity for some actual change. It seems that Chicago Democrats have not chosen that path.
Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner took office in 2015, stating that his goal as governor was to “create a more prosperous state, where everyone has an opportunity to succeed.”
Apparently some Democrats in Chicago aren’t happy with his performance so far. Sources say that a lot of arguments exist between the Republican Governor and the Democrats of the state.
