Anger over Jussie Smollett’s dropped charges leads to Chicago’s mayor and Trump promising action

(CNN)It’s not often that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and President Donald Trump agree. But on Thursday, they were united in outrage over the dismissal of Jussie Smollett’s criminal charges.

A prosecutor unexpectedly dropped all charges Tuesday against the “Empire” actor, who was accused of staging an assault on himself — leading Chicago police to investigate it as a possible hate crime.
Emanuel lambasted a prosecutor’s decision to drop 16 charges, saying if Smollett wasn’t an actor with influence, he would have been held to a different standard.
