Chicago Mayor Lightfoot tells McDonald's CEO to 'educate himself' after he warns of rising crime
‘Sugar Bliss’ owner condemns Chicago leadership for escalating crime: I blame Lori Lightfoot
‘Sugar Bliss’ owner Teresa Ging told ‘Varney & Co.’ a 37% increase in crime from last year has her rethinking her future in Chicago.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot fired back at the CEO of McDonald’s after he highlighted the difficulty rising crime in the city has caused for his business, telling him he needs to "educate himself" on the matter.
"I think what would have been helpful is for the McDonald's CEO to educate himself before he spoke," the Chicago Democrat said during a media availability on Tuesday.
McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski warned in a speech at the Economic Club of Chicago luncheon last week that it was time to "face facts" and acknowledge that companies have been leaving the city over the past year due in part to rising crime.
"The fact is that there are fewer large companies headquartered in Chicago this year than last year," Kempczinski said. "There are fewer this month than last month."
