BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore City Council President Brandon Scott fired back at President Donald Trump who said Tuesday during the Presidential Debate that Democratic-run cities don’t “want law and order.”

When talking about violence in the U.S., President Trump said, “The Democrats that run these cities don’t want law and order.”

President Trump mentioned Baltimore, Portland and Seattle, among others.

President Trump Takes Aim At Baltimore Again, Says Democratic-Run Cities Don’t ‘Want Law And Order’

“President Trump unless you are bringing resources and addressing economic, racial, and environmental injustices in my city, KEEP BALTIMORE OUT OF YOUR MOUTH,” Scott said in a tweet shortly after the Presidential Debate.

In September, the president took aim at Baltimore in a series of tweets, calling the city “the WORST IN [sic] NATION.”

In July 2019, President Trump also tweeted about Baltimore, while criticizing the late Rep. Elijah Cummings.

In a series of tweets, the president called Baltimore “a disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess.”

    That’s the motto of these corrupt democrats, they do not like or believe in accountability for their constant failures! The truth hurts Brandon?? Baltimore is a dirty decaying violent democratic legacy! The usual blind eye by the democrats in city hall…

    Enjoy your dirty rat infested ghettos, you keep voting in these democratic failures don’t expect anything to change!

    Seems to me that the “racial, economic and environmental injustices’ that have existed in Baltimore for 50+years can only be blamed on the people who live in and run Baltimore City. Lil Brandy can’t handle the truth and will divert the blame just like every useless Dem leader before him . Stop pointing the finger elsewhere and look into the REAL problems that continue to feed the viscous cycle of crime and poverty…out of control kids, gangs, drug rings, trash piles, squeegee people, homelessness, failing schools, sanctuary for illegals etc…….all brought on by the citizens and allowed by the leadership.

    Can’t handle the truth there bud? Maybe a Republican could do better. Wake up Baltimore.

  6. King Julian says:

    i didn’t think the mayors office could get any worse, but it will be downhill more and faster with scott as mayor watch and see.

  7. Stacey says:

    What resources is Brandon looking for more swimming pools for the city. How many Billions of dollars has already been pumped into the city over decades. What did their folk hero Elijah do to help. Get along, go along Brandon will be Mayor soon, Activist Mosby will still be AG, and her activist husband will be on the city consul as more city residents and employers flee. What could possible go wrong.

  8. Thomas "CuDa" says:

    Just another wanna be punk politician thinking he is something when he isn’t jack. Brandon you don’t have the juice to tell a POTUS squat, sit down and shut up punkass!

    Baby girl brandon, what are you going to do if trump says Baltimore again? Get one of your thugs to go after him? You are trying to become the mayor of a failing city. Your fellow democrats have ruined that city. You know it, that’s why you get your panties in a bunch over Trump calling your friends out. You want to make Baltimore a better city? Here is the best way to do that. Go lay down and let REAL leaders run the city.

    Truth hurts when you don’t know how to fix it. Plus some other democrat already said that like a year ago.. at least be original…
