CHICAGO - The city's ongoing problem with gun violence is again getting national attention after former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tweeted a joke.

On Wednesday he said, "On way to Chicago for speech. Expecting to have to run from plane dodging bullets like Hillary did in Bosnia when under sniper fire! Yikes!"

That was met with a lot of criticism online.

Huckabee ran for president last year and in 2008.

He has also been a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump.
