WASHINGTON  - President Donald Trump's vow to "send in the Feds" if Chicago is unable to cut shootings and killings is a pledge to provide law enforcement or other federal assistance so that the city's citizens will feel safe, the White House said on Wednesday.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the federal government could provide law enforcement assistance if requested by the state's governor, but that other types of aid were also potentially available."I think next is we'll hopefully get a dialog started with Mayor (Rahm) Emanuel to try to figure out what a path forward can be so that we come up with a plan that can keep the people of Chicago safe," he said.
