 WE’VE GOT YOUR BIG CROWD, TRUMP...

 

Dozens of political organizations and interest groups are urging their supporters to gather at 11:30 a.m. Monday at the intersection of Wacker and Wabash streets, which looks at Trump Tower from across the Chicago river. The protesters are expected to include immigration groups, gun control activists and women’s organizations.

"We will be out in full force to protest Trump’s gleeful bashing of our city, his ridiculing of the very real violence promoted by his pro-gun policies, and his attempts to thwart us and all Sanctuary Cities as we protect our immigrant neighbors," Marj Halperin of Indivisible Chicago told Playbook.

Striking teachers are also expected to be part of the protest, hundreds of whom participated Thursday in civil disobedience training....

At the police chiefs convention at McCormick Place, Trump will hold court over a friendly crowd. Last year, at the group’s gathering in Orlando, he criticized Chicago’s handling of crime.

It’s no wonder Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said he’ll boycott Monday’s speech.

He might consider wandering over to the Illinois Institute of Technology campus to watch crews preparing for the Obama Foundation Summit that starts Tuesday. Oh yeah, the Obamas are expected to be in town Monday, too....
