Trump: African-Americans In Baltimore Are "Living In Hell" Because Money Is "Stolen" By People Like Elijah Cummings

|

President Trump doubled down on his criticism of the Democratic leaders of Baltimore "and other cities corruptly run by Democrats" during a press conference with reporters on the White House lawn Tuesday.

"People have called from Baltimore thanking me so much, because all that money that's been spent over 20 years has been stolen and wasted by people like Elijah Cummings," Trump said. "Those people are living in hell in Baltimore. They're largely African American. And they really appreciate what I'm doing."





QUESTION: (INAUDIBLE)

TRUMP: No, I think I'm helping myself, because I'm pointing out the tremendous corruption that's taken place in Baltimore and other Democratic-run cities. All you have to do is look at the past mayors in Baltimore, see what happened. No, I think I'm helping myself.

And I'll tell you what. The White House and myself, in letters and emails and phone calls, have received more phone calls than I think on any other subjects of people from Baltimore and other cities corruptly run by Democrats thanking me for getting involved. Those people are living in hell in Baltimore. They're largely African American. You have a large African American population. And they really appreciate what I'm doing, and they've let me know it. They really appreciate it.

And by the way, the numbers just came out. Unemployment for African Americans is the lowest it's been, the best numbers, meaning in the history of our country, the lowest in the history of our country. But people have called from Baltimore thanking me so much, because all that money that's been spent over 20 years has been stolen and wasted by people like Elijah Cummings.
