He was stupid for saying it the way he did, that's for sure. If you want to call a city rat infested and going backwards, NYC springs immediately to mind with LA and San Francisco close behind it. Baltimore has run itself into a hole the last few years with a crappy DA and citizens who seem intent on seeing it collapse. What he said was truthful but he gave those who cry "Racist!" at the drop of a hat a little to work with. Luckily for him the race car has been overplayed to death so it will find little resonance. But voters don't like hearing they made their city a **** hole. Baltimore has company, Philly is there, Chicago is there, St. Louis is there, the list goes on.

How is Trump saying Baltimore is a dump "racist”
Its not. Its a narrative the left is trying to establish for campaign purposes. Its one of few issues they can run on. Master knows what to feed the plantation dupes.

Yeah because that was his plan all along.

God forbid Trump would just use big boy words and sentences to address serious issues in this country.

By targeting someone from that community and describing the community as inhabitable makes us all aware how compassionate and caring Trump is about the good people (some of them are good) that have to live in that community.

I'm struck by the positive policies Trump is recommending to help improve the area.....

joooooooooh I went too far -- he hasn't gotten to that yet because Fox News hasn't told him what to say.



ugh.

It is choosing to tell another person of color to 'go back'.

Find one instance where he has told a white politician to 'go back' to their infested community........be clear....go back and infested............

Almost entirely white blue collar area of Baltimore? Yeah, right, where are they all working at the new auto plant down the street?

You are correct on your last sentence. Master Trump is feeding his dupes. They are loving it and twisting to defend his words

See, this is my thinking, too. Trump is not a graceful man. Subtle nuance is not within his abilities at all ... lol. But what I do appreciate is his willingness to tackle situations that have been avoided due to our current culture of feelings over facts. He tells it like it is in ugly, realistic style. We’re having conversations we avoided for a long time because of his frank nature.

He's not wrong. It's about half "old school" Baltimore/blue collar who work as longshoremen at the harbor or at the railroad. The other half is yuppies and millennials who work downtown and are white collar.

Yes, Trump is a narcissist and a brash NY bully who I am disturbed by much of his personality and behavior, but the democrats are absolutely terrifying.
It has taken Trump and his disturbing personality/behavior to finally pull the mask off our deeply biased and corrupt media, our corruptly biased justice system, and much of the cultural and immigration dysfunction and anarchy we are experiencing but refuse to deal with due to the control and scare tactics democrats have over our culture.

Trump is the first republican pol to not be scared silent of the Dems and their bullying.
He bully’s them right back even harder.....
