DOWNTOWN — President Donald Trump tried to criticize Chicago during a Wednesday rally — but his remarks quickly turned into a joke on Twitter.
"Look at Chicago. What the hell is going on in Chicago? What's that all about?" Trump asked during a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
A reporter from the Toronto Star, Daniel Dale, shared the quotation on Twitter. It prompted more than 100 people to jokingly respond: Well, there's nice weather. The Cubs and Sox are a disappointment. The food's good.
"What the hell is going on in D.C.?" one quipped.
Here are some of the responses::

I walked safely home and put my kids to bed after dinner. Now I'm prepping for camping. Scary urban stuff.— carmin (@CarmintheB) June 22, 2017
Don't hate because we found a way to combine pizza and that most Midwestern of dishes - casserole.— dean would have won (@BirdG81) June 22, 2017
It was sunny today, little cloudy after lunch. Transformers premiere. Loop Wendy's closed. Gauguin at Art Institute. Best pizza. Beaches.— Buttery Mails (@SadieLeMoyne) June 22, 2017

He's gotta be talking about the Cubs, right? Because I don't know either— Sarah (@ilovescotchtoo) June 22, 2017
...nothing much. Some beach volleyball, good outdoor cafe foods and craft beer. #GladYoureNotHere.— Mikky J Wright (@mikkyjwright) June 22, 2017
Met a friend for lunch then we walked to the river along the south bank. Hopped in a cab and went home to Avondale. Nice day— Mabel Guzman (@mabsguzman) June 22, 2017
They have this thing they call 'deep dish pizza'. Don't be afraid though, you can use a knife and fork with your tiny hands.— Neil Coulson (@NeilEJCoulson) June 22, 2017
