In Baltimore's defence, John Hopkins is a famous medical school and university, and the Peabody Library is famous, and Baltimore looks like it has a nice harbour. I do have to agree with Trump in terms of the amount of murders though, although the rate has been falling in some US cities which is a further positive.

Homelessness has always been in Santa Monica and Venice beach since the early 90s but since there's less benches, some of the younger people are living in cars, parks, tents on sidewalks or sleep outside large stores that have abandoned that location.
DJT has also criticized Rubio, Jeb Bush, and is always on Schumer and Pelosi too. He is just old-school and will be on your ass if your job performance is suspect.

Parts of Baltimore are horrible just as parts of L.A. and Cleveland are filthy & poverty stricken. People today just don't like hard-asses and reality checks in society. They don't like to hear it at work or on TV and surely not from the Pres. of the U.S. I'm glad I am over 45 and can take it.

** However, I certainly wouldn't criticize the dems the way he does on twitter or to the media. The dems shouldn't lie about him. They need to just campaign on what they can actually & will do for their district. Put the impeachment talk to bed. That is a pipedream. And even if he was miraculously impeached by the House, he'll still be elected in 2020. Their rhetoric, especially AOC, is so embarrassing & nonsensical.
"People today just don't like hard-asses and reality checks in society. They don't like to hear it at work or on TV and surely not from the Pres. of the U.S."

I disagree. Many I know voted for him JUST for that reason. We are tired of the politicians gobbledygook ( gobbledegook-language that is meaningless or is made unintelligible by excessive use of abstruse technical terms; nonsense.) double talk. We WANT it straight without all the B. S. like this:

Quote of the day
  • “My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I'm glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in
    which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know… the remnants
    of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have
    overlooked the bigger picture and we didn’t do that and I’m proud of that. Very proud. I would say that’s
    a major accomplishment.”
- Hillary Clinton 11 March 2014

Could someone please tell me what the hell she just said?

And obama when asked a simple question would spend 5 minutes with more "I",s than any thing else and at the end NEVER addressed the question.

The so-called MSM is going nuts - what’s new - over the President calling Baltimore a dump. This is a classic example of the Democrats wanting to force everyone to go along with their charades, this time pretending places like Baltimore, which they’ve ruined btw, are some kind of fantastic places and that life-long poverty pumps like Cummings are ‘champions.’ It’s exactly this hype of delusion that got the President elected in the first place.

Unfortunately, the below link highlights the situation created by Democrats in places like Baltimore. While this woman is criticizing Cummings, it is because he hasn't arranged 'shoe and clothes giveaways.' This is the mentality that people like Cummings have created over the decades they've been in power:

The concept of not ‘punching down’ goes completely over Trump’s head.
"The concept of not ‘punching down’", never heard of it.

I like, "if you CAN"T take it, DON"T dish it out" a LOT better.

Why should we allow "down" people the right to trash you and NOT respond back in a like manner.

I have never read in the Constitution we must adhere to the Marquess of Queensberry Rules.

I HAVE heard of, "DON'T bring a knife to a GUN fight" and "If you go after me and I will come back with everything I have"

Liberals are the biggest frauds on the planet and transfer their own personal insecurities and thoughts upon others. Libs feel minorities are inferior to them, and thus are not held to the same standard. This, of course, is actual "racism" and the libs reveal their heartfelt beliefs with these thoughts.
BINGO, we have a WINNER!

He just can't stop. His sensitive, snowflake ego won't let him.
