Trump made:

Nancy Pelosi defend MS-13, a violent, terrorist gang made up largely of illegal aliens.

Nancy Pelosi damn the radical, far left anti American Jihad Squad and AOC, then defend them making them the Face of the Democrat Party.

Now Trump makes the Democrats defend Rat infested, high crime, failed Democrat run cities as models for America.

Oh well, nice try Dems. You lose again.

Due to how Trump is dealing with things like this, there are now people living in these cities that have found courage to speak out and no longer be suppressed by the Democratic leaders of the party of hate and party that wants to divide everyone...the Democratic Party!
The woman in the OPís link demonstrated courage when wants a cookout, shoe and clothing giveaways. Thatís the criteria she uses to evaluate a federal lawmaker?

They want federal money.

I live in Baltimore.

Cummings is always around Baltimore making speeches and whatnot.

His district is huge and includes some pretty affluent areas of Maryland.

The kinds of things that would help Baltimore are the things that would come out of the Mayor and Governor’s office (crime reduction, stimulating business creation, improving public education). Cummings is not in the place to do much but help the Mayor/governor get favorable federal legislation passed concerning any intervention they are trying to implement.

Baltimore has some huge poverty stricken areas but also has quite a few really nice areas. There’s definitely an image problem though, as well as a crime spike since the riots. County people tend to be the worst with the stereotypes.

I really wish everybody didn’t always fall for Trump’s shenanigans. This is a stupid sidetrack that just starts arguments and makes everyone hate each other more. Meanwhile it goes nowhere.

Trump has sought to create / sustain a perception that Cummings is somehow responsible for the 60 years of decline that tracks the decline of manufacturing in Baltimore. It’s the same thing in Appalachia Except the industry is mining that peaked nearly 100 years ago. And even at peak, vast parts of Appalachia was dirt poor.

Cummings would rater abuse his authority as a committee chairman to bully law enforcement he won't support !!! Cummings would rater spend his time representing noncitizens and his future voters than the citizens that elected him !!!

Second, I'm not sure that the remarks are automatically racist, but Trump's problem is that once he has a record for so much racism, even before his presidency, he's stuck with been viewed that way.
Trump's record was well known and available before he was elected ? Enough people had a different opinion !!! Enough people to get him elected !!!
If not wanting to be racist was the problem, why would democrats bring in a Race Pimp like AL Sharpton to shake down Baltimore !!! He has a history of race bating and will go away and shut-up once he's paid enough !!! Sharpton lives for these problems and makes bank on them !!! When the bank closes he's out of there !!! Community agitator seek next community and on and on....He doesn't have to be right about anything he just has to be outraged and loud !!! Racism !!! Racism !!!
