CHICAGO -- Mayor Rahm Emanuel is taking aim at Donald Trump again for the second time in a week. And this time he made an unflattering comparison between the Republican frontrunner and the Republican governor of Illinois, Bruce Rauner.

“He (Trump) is not only dividing the Republican Party, it’s exactly how his presidency will be in dividing the United States,” Emanuel said. “And I won’t say, but, you know, Illinois right now, while it’s had its divisions before, they’ve been exacerbated of late. And I would hope that we come together and would move forward.”

Mayor Emanuel and Gov. Rauner have been sparring for months in public over how to solve Chicago Public Schools' fiscal crisis.
