Places like Baltimore are crap holes because the Democrats, who have controlled them for decades have run business and job opportunities out of town with their policies. So, in that regard, everyone living there, who wants a job and who wants opportunity should care and start voting these poverty pimps like Cummings out of office.
How did Democrats run all the manufacturing out of town? Explain

I'm from St Louis, and we saw the same thing there.

The Democrats, once they gained control of the municipal government, raised taxes on industry and business and increased regulations to the point that businesses moved out of the city and into other areas. In addition to this, nationally, we had busing, which exacerbated white flight, leaving only poor people, usually black in many areas. So, you had a situation, where jobs left, and the schools were left in disarray.

I haven't been represented by a President since JFK, over 50 years ago !!!


If people want to be represented they can get on the Trump train !!! If not welcome to reality !!!


Its fairly clear why he said it !!! He saw a big mouth racist committee chairman abusing his authority and bullying a member of his admin. in law enforcement and blaming them for dealing with a situation he can fix as a member of congress but won't !!!
He wasn't conducting oversight !!! He was demonizing, dehumanizing, and passing the buck onto someone he won't support that is doing the best they can with a problem he's done nothing to fix !!! As a member of congress he needs do his job on a national level and in his district !!!
You don't know who in Baltimore is going to vote for him and that isn't the issue anyway !!! From the looks of it the lady in the earlier video living in Baltimore saying Trump is right might well vote for Trump !!! What has she got to lose ? More of the same from the failure Cummings !!!
Do you consider yourself to be a patriotic person ?

There is no way that I could be. The issue I see is so many think that people dont want to see it either because they are racist themselves, just like mocking the libs, siding with your hometeam or just plain ignorant. You really think Trump isn't saying race-baiting comments? You really don't think he has said enough that he isn't racist? There is a LOT of proof of it. If you dismiss the proof, I can't convince you it that you are wrong.

If it's as you say, why bother with the farce of electing a leader of the entire country at all?

I now have no party since the Republicans have become something I don't want to officially be associated with. A not insignificant number of people (38% according to Pew) are now independent and it's trending towards increasing still.

Even through all the Democrat presidents while I was Republican, I still felt overall like they were supposed to represent us all as a country despite differences. Now we are at a place where I can no longer say that because President Trump doesn't act like the president of all.

I am tired of all the Republican vs. Democrat nonsense. At this point I think they both need to die off if we are to have hope of healing somewhat at least, though it's certainly not a given. I worry for the future of my little girls in such a broken country. Hopefully it will end up better than I imagine.

Now I'll just wait for someone to come along and call me a liberal or Democrat again, since goodness knows that's what some assume if I am not on board with the Trump train. Maybe I'll get called a martyr again for wanting an adult as president. Good times, these days.

Quite the opposite. The President'is being criticized by a man whose district is a mess, and it is a mess. He knows it's a mess, and even Bernie Sanders compared it to a "3rd World country" (Dec. 2015). Cummings has done nothing to clean it up. It isn't as though Cumming's district isn't as the President described it. It's exactly as the President described it.

Sorry you've bought into all the lies and smears of the DNC and the media. It's understandable though. You're probably popular now with that crowd.

Trump puts attention on people and things that need it, I see no problem with what he said.
Racist! they proclaim!! It like a liberal turrets. The Dims are fighting a losing battle over a provably rotten city run by their failed leaders. Another Detroit.

If it weren't for its proximity to Washington, it would be even worse.

Why would I vote for a President if he or she makes disparaging comments about the place I live in? Explain.

And furthermore, did Trump really need to say that about Baltimore? What is necessary? Are his comments going to get anyone to improve Baltimore? Is it going to make anyone in Baltimore want to vote for him? What was the purpose of his comments?
Mayor Catherine Pugh made disparaging comments about the city of Baltimore while she was mayor. None of the poverty pimps whining about Trump had a word of criticism for Ms. Pugh, however. No surprise there though. Ms. Pugh checks all the right demographic boxes and most of all she has a shiny and sparkly (D) behind her name.


In fact, even when Ms. Pugh resigned in disgrace due to corruption, these same Democrats didn't have much pointed criticism for Ms. Pugh. So the self-righteous manufactured outrage from these awful leftists is pretty much laughable.
