President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that Chicago’s high murder rate makes it less safe than Afghanistan.

The president made the remarks in an interview with David Muir of ABC News.

Trump was asked about comments he made on Twitter on Tuesday in which he threatened to ‘send in the feds’ if ‘Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible carnage going on [there].’

When Muir asked the president what he specifically meant by ‘send in the feds,’ Trump relied: ‘It’s carnage.’

‘You know, in my speech I got tremendous – from certain people the word carnage.’

‘It is carnage. It’s horrible carnage.’

‘This is Afghanistan – is not like what’s happening in Chicago.’

‘People are being shot left and right. Thousands of people over a period – over a short period of time.’

Trump then went on to say that the murder rate in Chicago is worse this year than it was in 2016.

‘This year, which has just started, is worse than last year, which was a catastrophe,’ the president said.
