CHICAGO, Illinois. – Donald Trump plans to visit Chicago on October 28. This would be the first visit he would carry out as president of the United States to the City of Winds.
Trump has been a tough critic of the crime in Chicago for years, however his visit is not to address the issue of violence, but for a fundraiser organized by members of the Republican Party and Todd Rickett, one of the owners of the Chicago CubsRELATED
According to the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper, the location of the fundraising event has not been established. However, it is believed that it could be in the Trump Tower, in 401 north of Wabash Avenue or in some other location in downtown Chicago. Wrigley Field was ruled out as an option.
The relationship between Trump and Chicago has been difficult. The president has criticized the sanctuary cities, and city officials like Lori Lightfoot have been critical of their positions on immigration issues. In addition, he has been criticizing the tragic crime situation in the city for years.
Illinois sio saw a visit from the president in 2018, causing Congressman Luis Gutierrez and other leaders, who considered the president to promote hatred in the country and considered him a "hypocrite" for his trip to Illinois.
Trump visited the small town of Granite, south of the state amid tensions with China after the intensification of the trade war with China. However, hundreds of workers were benefiting after the reopening of a heavy metal factory. However, the visit was not without tensions, since many agricultural workers were unhappy about the conditions that the rates had provided.

"Ok, we are ready," they said on the popular La Villita Facebook page, when they shared the news that Trump was coming to Chicago.
