In an interview with Fox News, US President Donald Trump admitted that the rate of violence in some US cities is higher than in Afghanistan and Honduras.

Iran Press/America:  "For example, Chicago is worse than Afghanistan. Their situation is worse than these countries - I shouldn't say that because those countries are cooperating with us. I mean Honduras and Guatemala, and now they're all working with us. We have cities that are in some cases much worse." Trump said.

"Look at Detroit, look at what's happening in Auckland. Look at what's going on in Baltimore," he added.

"Honestly, black people come to me and say, 'Thank you, thank you for saying this, "the US president said in another part of his remarks. They want help. Living in these cities is living in hell. Sixty-eight people were killed in Chicago last week," Trump said.
