President Donald Trump went into full attack mode after Chicago police announced actor Jussie Smollett scammed the city with false accusations of his attack.
“[email protected] – what about MAGA and the tens of millions of people you insulted with your racist and dangerous comments!? #MAGA,” Trump tweeted.

In a press conference Thursday, police chided Smollett for wasting city resources and time. Police said that Smollett was dissatisfied with his salary and that was his motivation for falsifying the attack.
While this attack was false, in just the 24 hours following Trump’s election in 2016, nearly 150 people were attacked by Trump supporters.
