Trump says he will not fire Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein

The city of Chicago reached an agreement with the American Civil Liberties Union of IL in 2015 to curb stop-and-frisk procedures after the ACLU threatened to file a lawsuit over the issue. "It was meant for it. Stop and frisk".
Chicago-based ACLU official Karen Sheley says Trump has encouraged strong-arm tactics by police and the "solutions to violence in Chicago are not going to come from Donald Trump".
Chicago saw its deadliest year in 2016 with a record 765 murders but that number has slowly dwindled from 2017 with 653 murders down to the 419 murders recorded this year.
The one idea Trump presented to accomplish this was re-tooling the city's use of stop-and-frisk, the policy of conducting warrantless stops to search people for weapons.
The group discussed violent crime in Chicago, support for local law enforcement, border security, the police chiefs' conference they were flying to and "general DOJ business", spokesman Hogan Gidley said without elaboration. The number of slayings still exceeds numbers in Los Angeles and NY combined. He has faced widespread criticism over his handling of gun violence. Emanuel said he welcomed federal help but cautioned against the strictly "tough and rough" approach Trump seemed to advocate.
The forthcoming consent decree is a product of a Justice Department investigation initiated shortly after the city was forced in November 2015 to release video of Van Dyke, a white police officer, shooting McDonald, a black teenager who was carrying a knife.
Trump, in his remarks Monday, singled out politicians who have criticized police, often in the wake of shootings of young, black men. Trump said Monday that the settlement is a "terrible deal" that should be changed.
Just weeks before the midterm elections, Trump accused Democrats of being soft on crime.
They did talk, for about 45 minutes, but not alone, a White House spokesman said.
Rosenstein and Trump had been expected to meet at the White House days later, but that meeting was put off so that the president could focus on a confirmation hearing of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Trump says he's finally sending the feds to Chicago.
Although Trump has at times criticised his deputy attorney general, he has reserved his sharpest verbal attacks for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation in March 2017 because of his own earlier involvement with the Trump campaign.
Trump also heralded recent declines in unemployment as a positive step toward lower crime rates.
So Rosenstein's departure, possibly putting someone more pliable in his place, would set off alarm bells over the future independence of a probe which has the potential to rock the entire presidency.
