    Obviously President Trump is the problem…He’s to blame for all of this violence and murder in Baltimore!!!! Good thing the RACIST Peoples Power Assembly is making signs and protesting his visit. That will definitely help to stop all the Black on Black crime in the City. (this is sarcasm for all of those who do not get it!!)
