CHICAGO -- Ivanka Trump included factual mistakes in tweets Tuesday about Chicago’s weekend violence, as her father’s administration grapples with fallout from mass shootings in Ohio and Texas.
Trump also indicated the seven people killed died “near a playground.” There was a shooting near a playground in which seven people were injured, but none were killed at that scene.
“It’s important, when we’re talking about peoples’ lives, to actually get the facts correct, which one could easily do if you actually cared about getting it right,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot said in response.
Lightfoot added: “She got the numbers wrong, she got the location wrong. That’s the danger of trying to govern via tweet."
