U.S. President Donald Trump said on Twitter on Tuesday that he would "send in the Feds" if Chicago doesn't "fix the horrible 'carnage' going on."

In his inauguration speech on Friday, Trump accused the Washington establishment of protecting itself but abandoning regular citizens who have suffered from poverty and crime. "This American carnage stops right here and stops right now," he said.
