BALTIMORE (WJZ) — President Donald Trump has tweeted about Baltimore, again.

“People don’t remember the chaos, hatred & discord that we all went through during the 8 years of Obama/Biden. St. Louis, Oakland, Baltimore, and so many other places, were a complete & total disaster. I wouldn’t be in the beautiful White House if it weren’t for Sleepy Joe, etc.” he said in his tweet.

He claims that the “chaos, hatred & discord” was happening during the Obama administration.


He mentioned St. Louis, Oakland and Baltimore as well as “so many other places” being a “complete and total disaster.”

“I wouldn’t be in the beautiful White House if it weren’t for Sleepy Joe, etc.” he added.

In the last year, he has taken aim at Baltimore many times, calling it a “rat and rodent infested mess. He also criticized the late Rep. Elijah Cummings on his leadership in the 7th District and has endorsed the Republican candidate Kim Klacik to take the seat. He has also made comments that he wants the U.S. to “build factories in Baltimore, not Beijing.”

    As usual, he does not know what he is talking about. Never since Obama left has there been more hatred, discord & high employment than the last 4 years and add to that an out of control pandemic that has killed 215,000 innocent Americans.

    The last thing we need is more Trump and I hope he stays the heII out of Maryland (which he is happy to use for a photo op) once he is thrown out of the White House in January kicking and ]screaming the election he has tried so desperately to stop was “rigged” while he is supposedly in charge of law and order…………

    VOTE HIM OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If anyone needs more proof trump is an unfit liar then they are just as crazy as he is.,

    Anyone sane stays out of a place they think is a hell hole

    trump keeps forgetting he is “president” of the blue states too

    his followers are nuts they think covid is a hoax and trump speaks truth- he’s the biggest liar ever in the white house and that is saying a lot

    and after 4 years of the Trump administration it still is only now we have higher unemployment, less tourism and almost 500 people in the city dead of covid thanks to Trump.

    –Trump has made a huge mess of this country- the suckers are losers are his supporters- too stupid to see the truth and know a lie when they step in one. Other guy is right Trump does not get to pick and chose what cities and plenty of Republican run cities have had riots & violence too and a huge upsurge in far right violent racist groups (that Trump supports)

    If he thinks the city is so bad why does he keep coming here?????????????????????

    meanwhile 5 more people in Baltimore lost their lives in homicides over this past weekend. Get over how much you hate Trump and face the fact that he is right about our city. No matter how much everybody hates him, it does not change the fact that city leadership has failed us because their agenda is to get re-elected.

    Trump is the complete total disaster and the face of hate. Of course he badmouths Maryland, he has what 30% support here? We don’t have as many stupid people as the red states do

    Baltimore has crime, all big cities in this country have crime and the easy availability of guns in many nearby states has a lot to do with it. Look at Oklahoma City & Miami- Trump does not talk about the high crime there because they are crime riddled large cities w/ Republican mayors……….and the same problems we have.

    Funny how Trump likes Baltimore/Ft McHenry so well for a patriotic backdrop- not too dangerous or poorly run for that is it

    Trump said he would “bring back law and order”- he didn’t, not here, not in Republican cities not anywhere.

  7. Terrence says:

    How can you even compare Oklahoma City to Baltimore? OKC has had 6 murders so far this year, And we had 5 in Baltimore last weekend! Try again. Your hatred of republicans is showing and you didn’t check the facts. I would also point out that “easy availability” of ILLEGAL firearms is definitely a problem in this city. The police department needs to be supported by the state’s attorney’s office and city hall to combat this. Neither one has the courage to do so.
