Trump: “Those People In Baltimore Are Living In Hell”

CBS News reports:

President Trump is not backing off of his salvos against black Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings and Baltimore. On Tuesday, the president told reporters on the White House South Lawn that residents of Baltimore are “living in hell.”

“Those people are living in hell in Baltimore,” Mr. Trump said, continuing his rant against the city just to the north. “They’re largely African-American … and they really appreciate what I’m doing, and they let me know it.”

Mr. Trump claimed, without evidence Tuesday, that “thousands” of people have let his administration know they’re “thankful” he’s calling attention to Baltimore, saying African-Americans are “happy as hell” he’s highlighting the “corruption” there.
