Chicago Mayor Concedes to Teachers Union Threats, Guess Who She’s Blaming for the Strike
Failed Chicago Mayor has had her hands full for quite a while, and she keeps ruining everything that she touches.
She was recently confronted with a teachers union strike because Mayor Lightfoot was demanding that they come back to work. Well, of course, you know that Chicago teachers aren’t going to want to come back to work when they can stay home, so they threatened to strike.
Ultimately, Lightfoot ended up waving the white flag and decided to agree to remote learning after learning of the strike threat. But then the story takes a strange, yet predictable turn as Lightfoot ended up blaming President Trump for the issues with Chicago public schools and the strike.
According to The Chicago Tribune,
But although she told MSNBC Monday that the issue was “uniquely local,” during a Tuesday appearance on CNNs “New Day,” she instead laid blame far beyond the scope of the city’s dueling factions.
Lightfoot didn’t invoke the name of the nation’s 45th president but she suggested the ongoing impasse between Chicago Public Schools and CTU, over whether it is safe to return to in-person instruction as early as Thursday, stems from the failed vaccine rollout under former President Donald Trump.
“This is a very difficult situation and we’re in it, still, because of the incompetence of the previous administration. So I think it’s important for both sides to come to the table in good faith, recognize that we’re both trying to work through a very challenging situation but we must get a deal done,” Lightfoot said to “New Day” cohost Alisyn Camerota.
This isn’t for any incompetence in the Trump administration. Is she the Mayor, or is she not? Does she run the city, or does she not? Other cities and states are doing just fine with managing their schooling system whether in person or virtually.
