The FOP represents a number of big city police departments, and Angelo said during the meeting the national FOP president expressed concerns with the Trump administration's pledge to cut federal funding for sanctuary cities, including Chicago.

Sanctuary cities, such as San Francisco and NY, refuse to cooperate sometimes by not notifying Department of Homeland Security agents when illegal immigrants are being released from incarceration. Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez said after Sessions' announcement earlier this week that the federal government shouldn't punish local police departments in its campaign against illegal immigration. Attorney General Jeff Sessions threatened to halt federal funds to metropolitan areas that offer protection to immigrants.

About 10 a.m. Chicago time, Trump began a "listening session" with Angelo and others officials of the Fraternal Order of Police.

The Justice Department may not allow sanctuary cities to use grants from its Office of Justice Programs and Community Oriented Policing Services, which give money to local and state police departments.

Trump told the group that the policy on sanctuary cities was a work in progress and that he would work with the union to make sure public safety would not be affected, Pasco said.

Hosting several members of the police union in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, Trump reiterated his commitment to law enforcement.

"Go ahead Ken", Trump said, turning to the man sitting beside him.

In addition to gun violence, union leaders talked with Trump about the opioid crisis and sanctuary cities, according to the Chicago Tribune. The order excluded restrictions on funding "deemed necessary for law enforcement purposes".

He said he will carry to the White House the message of working police to ensure their voices are heard and that any federally supported solutions to have their input.
