WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump, who regularly criticizes Chicago over its inability to curb violent crime, opened a new front on Tuesday, taking a shot at city public schools.

Trump brought up Chicago schools during a conversation with top business executives at the White House.

One CEO told Trump the high school graduation rate in New York City is 70 percent, “but the readiness of our students for college and careers is only 37 — is assessed at 37 percent” as she went to ask Trump about training for the next generation of workers.

Trump, in reply, brought up charter schools, saying they have done “incredibly well.”

Continued Trump, “If you look at so many elements of education, and it’s so sad to see what’s coming — what’s happening in the country.
