First, there is no way Seattle isn't #1. I've been to Chicago and didn't see any rats there, whereas when I visited Seattle, I saw multiple every single day just running around in broad daylight. It was absolutely revolting.

As for the list, all the major Democrat cities were on it because I'm pretty sure nearly all the major cities are Democrat.

And rats tend to thrive in big cities, regardless of political affiliation.

I was going to say, I'm very sure that every city has rats.

I lived in very expensive Cambridge, MA previously, where people have multiple degrees and high incomes, and there were constant rat problems in my neighborhood.

The main cause was a multiple years long water/sewer pipe construction going on, had nothing to do with the people living there.

Well, almost every time a police officer unjustly shoots or abuses a citizen of color, it's in a city with a Democrat mayor and city council.

You'd almost begin to think it's a secret Democrat policy to make minorities feel victimized in order to garner support as the decry institutional racism in the places they control.

More Russian propaganda by a new member. Most of these cities have Republican governors.

Yes, I grew up in Manhattan in the 50's. When you have millions of people living in a place with tons of garbage put outside for collection, in addition to restaurant's garbage, this will attract rodents, and roaches. It is a fact of Big City life. Want every apartment building to have their own incinerator?

I can remember as a young child reaching under our living room sofa to retrieve my ball, and pulling out a mouse instead. We even had a CAT in our apartment, for all the good that did.

Trump is right about the rats. The Dimocrats that are championing for the Rights of illegal aliens should instead look to help their own districts and the citizens that voted them into power.

Do you read what you post, or just blinded by hate Trump emotion?

Are you trying to hijack the thread? It is NOT ALLOWED.

"Orkin's list of the top-50 "rattiest cities" in America. Almost all of the top-50 rat infested cities are run by Democrats"

Did the OP say it is NOT happening across the country? NO

Did the OP claim it is ONLY in dem cities? NO.

Or maybe you just have a reading comprehension problem.
