Mayor Daley talks about the real reason he is travelling with a delegation to China this weekend.
He made very clear Thursday afternoon that there's only one reason for the trip.
"I'll be very frank. We need money in America," he said. "I will take money around the world, if we can reinvest it in the city of Chicago and put people to work and rebuild our city."
Daley will travel with a delegation of business leaders to promote Chicago as a tourist destination.
