Today, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Suzanne Clark issued the following statement regarding the business-targeted destruction in Chicago:

"Last night, many Chicago storefronts were descended upon by individuals explicitly seeking to cause harm and inflict damage to private property. In the midst of the ongoing public health and economic crises, these senseless crimes are yet another obstacle for businesses during a time when many are already facing tough decisions about their future. Local government authorities have a duty to protect all of their citizens, including the business owners who contribute so much to the lives and livelihoods of their communities.”
