WASHINGTON (WJZ) — President Donald Trump on Sunday once again took aim at Baltimore in a series of tweets, calling the city “the WORST IN [sic] NATION.”

Over three tweets Sunday morning, the president urged voters in the 7th congressional district, which also includes portions of Baltimore and Howard counties, to elect Republican Kimberly Klacik this fall. Klacik is facing off again against Rep. Kweisi Mfume, who took over the spot left vacant following the death of Rep. Elijah Cummings.

“Be smart Baltimore! You have been ripped off for years by the Democrats, & gotten nothing but poverty & crime. It will only get worse UNLESS YOU ELECT KIMBERLY KLACIK TO CONGRESS. She brings with her the power & ECONOMIC STRENGTH OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY,” Trump tweeted in part.

Trump, who has tweeted favorably about Klacik in the past, also wrote that “Baltimore will turn around, and I will help. Crime will go way down, money and jobs will pour in,” if she’s elected.

“Baltimore is last in everything, WHAT THE HELL DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE!” he added.


The president and local leaders sparred last year on Twitter as well after Klacik tweeted videos that led Trump to call the city “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”

    I lived in Baltimore city for about 4 years, and it is a mess. I moved my family out to the suburbs, and due to the messed up gerrymandering I still get to vote for the 7th district. Kim Klacik has my vote.

    Wjz’s agenda is to pretend the democrats haven’t destroyed Baltimore for the last 50 years. The democrats are Baltimore’s enemy. I think it’s time for a change, don’t you think democrats have destroyed this town for to long?

    Hmmmm, lets see, Baltimore in 1970 had a population of one million people, now less then six hundred thousand, yeah I would say the evil white liberals have done a great job of wrecking the city.
