On Fox & Friends on Monday, “The Dan Bongino Show” podcast host Dan Bongino responded to the Chicago shooting Saturday night, in which at least 40 individuals were shot and four killed by gang members.

Bongino called out Chicago, a sanctuary city whose mayor has declared it a “Trump free zone” and which continues to “target illegal guns,” for its dangerous policies.

Bongino pointed to the tragedy of 17-year-old Jahnae Patterson, shot in the face in Saturday’s fight.
