But hey, go ahead and talk all the smack you wish, just keep your fingers crossed karma doesn't come a knockin'...
Really? The majority of the city of Baltimore is indeed a dump and full of murderous thuggie types. The only decent areas are around the ball park, the major hotels, convention center, Johns Hopkins and some of Fells Point. No one in their right mind would want to live in that city. Trump speaks the truth... and his comment had nothing to do with race.

When Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was mayor, she invited illegals to move to Baltimore. Apparently, in her dream world, she figured that illegals would move into all those abandoned homes. Once they moved in, they would revitalize Baltimore. If anything, illegals would make it even worse as their anchor babies would be getting all sorts of welfare benefits. Was she ever a clueless mayor!
Oh so now the problems in Baltimore are all about the illegals.

Edit: Actually the top-50 rat city list might be all run by Democrats. Anyone see a "red" city on that list?
Are you KIDDING? The states with the most poverty are all red states!

But Trump can 't call them ****holes because he wants their votes.

Just keep believing the man baby goes to sleep at night deeply concerned about farmers...And I have a great bridge in Brookyn to sell you..

What so many Democrats, liberals, and progressives seem to believe is that "people of color" have some kind of magic force shield that prevents them from ever being criticized. Trump doesn't believe that, and I would wager a majority of this country doesn't believe that either. Believing that a "person of color" is so delicate, so fragile, and so defenseless, that they can never be criticized, is a very underhanded, racist attitude. It's patronizing and demeaning.
Sorry but..he mostly goes after women and people of color unless they are his political competitors.

He never told one white person to go back where they came from and he picks a man of color from a heavily african American city to slam on twitter

I will eat my words and apologize..the day Trump slams Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta, Houston, South Bend, ETC ETC.

Any red or purple city that is high in crime..but he wont.

Amen. Most of all East Coast cities are dumps at this stage, to be honest.

Sadly, though what Trump said is an exaggeration of the truth, it is truth that the Democratic Party and the congressman cannot deny. His district has excessively high crime rate and a large amount of blighted or abandoned property. Itís as if heís become so focused on the old version of the civil rights battle that he, and others like him, have lost sight of what is happening today. Racism isnít killing and robbing people in the streets of his district. Racism isnít driving businesses to flee the district.

That shows how stupid Trump is. A total ignoramus.
Is that because Cummings isn't capable of doing much for Baltimore? I guess it is .... how long has he represented Baltimore? What has he accomplished?

But the state with the highest rate of poverty is California.

It has bubonic plague as well .... I don't think even the poor red states have managed that yet.
