If the things in your post happen, THAT is the end of American democracy. You're describing a despot or dictator, not a president. It's alarming.

3) Why should Baltimore be singled out, when every other major city and every other state in the country receive federal funds for one thing or another?
4) Do you blindly parrot everything the Trumpster tweets? You probably shouldn't do that; his head is up his behind most of the day.
" Why should Baltimore be singled out,"

Been asked multiple times and answered. Try to keep up.

" Do you blindly parrot everything the Trumpster tweets?

Do YOU blindly parrot EVERYTHING said by the likes of cummings, and the LSM, etc?

I'd say St. Louis is another good example of what happened to Baltimore and Detroit. The once great Gateway city has declined from a population of 856,000 in 1950 to 308,000 today.

These are all cities controlled by Tammany Hall-style machines. It's not even about D vs. R. For example, Seattle was Democrat and pretty well-run until about 2 or 3 decades ago. I'm afraid it's now following in the footsteps of St. Louis, albeit in slightly different West Coast style. But a similar outcome in the end.

We need to recognize the problem and do something about it in this great nation.

The situation in St. Louis is different than in Baltimore. There's no one solution that will fix every city's problems.

I'm wondering if the OP is punking us. His total devotion to Trump's every thought and utterance is extreme even for a cultist.

Maybe he's getting paid for posts. In China, there are folks called the 50 Cent-ers or 50 Cent party, because they get paid 50 cents per post to flood the internet with propaganda pieces.
