What does racist even mean anymore? It's basically just a leftist stutter.

Trump puts attention on people and things that need it, I see no problem with what he said.

Baltimore IS a disgusting dump. "Charm City" lost it's charm decades ago. Even the Inner Harbor, the one area that they always want to point to with such pride, has become dangerous. Innocent tourists have been attacked there recently.

You don't have to go too far back from the Inner Harbor tourist area to be in what Bernie Sanders compared four years ago to a Third World County. It's disgusting, filthy, and blighted. To deny that is downright dishonest.

I had training in Baltimore City once for a financial institution I was working for, for two weeks. We were told in training that it would be best to bring our own lunches and not venture out into the surrounding city area at lunchtime because it was dangerous. Even in the middle of the day. That was almost 30 years ago.

There was a movement in the 1980's to revitalize the more "character" filled areas of the city. I had a co-worker and friend that purchased and was trying to remodel a section of the old row homes that used to have such charm. He gave up on it, sold it for cheap. got the heck out.

I don't agree or like a lot of Trumps tweets. But there was nothing racist about this one, much of what he is saying is correct. We're not used to directness from a President.
Yea, and my sisters townhouse has almost doubled in value in the past 20 years, within walking distance of the Inner Harbor, in a blue collar neighborhood.

How 'bout that?

People like you claim that Trump lies all the time and now you're claiming he shouldn't tell the truth? He can't win with some people, thankfully he doesn't need you to win again in 2020.

Attention? The people of Baltimore already know whatís going on. They donít need words.

If Trump is so interested, why doesnít he help fix a city that he presides over? Heís spending billions to fix the city of Kabul.

BTW...why didnít he fix Atlantic City?

All that proves is your sister lives in a rat infested ****hole that has doubled in value over the course of 20 years, that's not exactly a great return on real estate.

It's weird. The word is meaningless as used. That's a fact. As all is "ists" and "phobics" are these days!

You do know, of course, that the only critter that can hear these "dog whistles" you admit to hearing is the dog for whom they are intended.

Which, apparently, by virtue of your confession above, is you.
At the GOP convention. Theyíre all over the place.
