Trump's idea of what it means to "clean up" is laughable. Trump towers? This is the man with gold toilets so he can dump his unhealthy fast food hamberders while tweeting foolishness on his cell phone.
MAGAalot walked right into that one.

Spoken like a true racist that he is.
If he had any shame or leadership skills and empathy he would be disappointed that a community in the country he leads is suffering.
He would address trying to fix Baltimore but instead he attacks a Congressman for it's problems but no his racism is front and center.
Does MAGA only apply to places where his supporters live and not Baltimore?
You will not find Trump insulting any RED or PURPLE cities with urban blight because he needs their votes.

If he did insult them, he would target areas that he knows his voters would complain about. It is not difficult to know what his voters will complain about.

"Between us"? Who is "us"? Is it the entire black population in the US?

And, what do you plan to do when black people don't vote the way you demand them to do? And how will you know how they voted if they don't tell you?

No matter what their race, religion or ethnicity, it's not my business as to how others vote. Just as it is not your business as to how other black people vote.

Trump should clean up his own back yard and keep his mouth shut more. Maybe if instead of calling names because an area has problems, he could help fix some of these problems. I mean, it is under his watch now isn't it? The guy who has more turnover in his administration and more people who worked for him pleading guilty & going to jail is criticizing others? The Swamp king .

Trump is a political dilettante. He’s actually a business dilettante too, but I’ll stick to one topic at a time.

He knows squat about local government except how to beg it for money to help him finance one of his failed projects.

The guy has left local governments with more disasters in his wake than hurricanes.

How would you know? You surely can’t afford to even walk into Trump Tower. That whole island is infested with rats. The rats just walk AROUND Trump Tower somehow?

Not to mention Trump’s most ambitious project: the Taj Mahal. It was rat infested and falling apart only a few years after he built it. It’s an architectural disaster. Leaky plumbing, peeling paint, crumbling fixtures, rodent infestations...on top of screwing all the small contractors out of $63 million dollars when he declared bankruptcy.

African Americans always had jobs.

So I don’t know why you’re on here blurting out things akin to “water is wet” and “it rains in Florida.”

Duh. Those things have nothing to do with Trump either.

What exactly would you like Trump or any president to do to clean up a place like Baltimore?

I’d expect nothing! It’s gotta come from the gut of the city.

Does he ever use these sorts of words when he bashes white people? It is rather...curious, as certainly he could try to use it against people like, say, De Blasio and Pelosi if he wanted.

"Donald Trump has tweeted more than 43,000 times. He's insulted thousands of people, many different types of people," Blackwell said on CNN. "But when he tweets about infestation, it's about black and brown people."

Typical of liberal train of thought...”let’s focus on color (racism) and not the issue.”

Have you been to Baltimore lately???
