Trump is right about Baltimore. Right about Elijah Cummings whose politics have crippled the city. Even hard core leftist David Simon agrees with Trump:

Quote
If this empty-suit, race-hating fraud had to actually visit West Baltimore for five minutes and meet any of the American citizens who endure there, hed wet himself,

The epic self-delusion in the above quote is impressive...he thinks he is criticizing Trump. But he is actually agreeing with him.

Leftist rag NY Times agrees that Baltimore is a mess:
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/12/magazine/baltimore-tragedy-crime.html

Baltimore murder rate is right now 58/100k which puts it at about the level of El Salvador or Honduras which is where all the refugees are coming from.

Why aren't Democrats called out on the fact that they have been running these cities like this for DECADES and they are in a shambles. One other thing that should also be called out is the idea that Black leadership would solve problems. IT HASN'T. The cities which have had black political leadership the longest are some of the worst in America.

Hey Rukawa - watch it !  You are insulting Chicago, which I thought actually was the murder capital of America. 100% controlled by Democrats
for 60+ years........ Barrack Obama's home town, which he wants nothing to do with. Plus 8 years of Rahm Emmauel, Obama's chief of Staff -
who could not overcome the corruption of the Democratic Party.

Home of Social Justice warrior Jessie Smollett - who Democrat Attorney General, Kimm Foxx, let off the hook - and smeared the Chicago Police
in the Process.

You are insulting our big city Democrats!  Of course all of Chicago's problems are Trump's fault!

I don't think Trump's totally wrong about Baltimore, but that doesn't mean his comments were appropriate to say. When cities are blighted, citizens live in poverty, and children go to poor schools it reflects on all of us as Americans, not just one congressional representative.

Well that one viewpoint, and correct about the city problems.

Another viewpoint - If you shame these politicians, perhaps the attention brought to them will force change, by removing them from office, or getting them off their ass.

There has been little to NO criticism of some of these cities for DECADES.  For years, if you criticized ANYTHING about Detroit, you would be labeled as a radical racist.

Meanwhile, these once great cities fell into utter ruin with Detroit leading the way.

Kushner continues to own these Baltimore slums as he advises and works for the White House and Trump. 

I still can't believe you Trump supporters still are ok with the nepotism in the White House.  If this was anyone else, even George Washington himself, you guys would be calling for a lynching...but Trump...no go ahead and hire Tiffany and Baron as well!  Cheers!

That backlash exists because this criticism is often cherry-picked and directed at the wrong people.

For example, as Sanjeev just posted, Kushner's Slumlord Co. is directly contributing to the "infestation" in Baltimore.
Yet where is the criticism of Kushner? It is absent, instead we get treated to:

Wait, why is Kushner now responsible or a hypocrite because he owns properties in Baltimore??? This is the stupid distraction stuff the left does. It's not Jared's responsibility to fix that shit hole. Same way these twitter losers freak out about how Ivanka can't help promote child wellness programs because there are children in detention centers, or how Melania cant promote women rights because Trump is a misogynist. Just bullshit distractions meant to discredit people they dont like.

And I say all this not liking silver spoon weasel Jared one bit. I guess rather than Jared... these lefty idiots would rather have the NYCHA or the Baltimore equivalent run it? Uh yea, they've been completely quiet about that disaster....like I said, just hypocrites.

I don't like the nepotism, but can you imagine if Trump and the White House mad an effort to fix areas in which they own property? CNN, Washington Post and New York Times would immediately say the President is using his power to improve the value of personal assets. I mean, wasn't this a concern when he first got elected?
